    Basically all I do for my seniors is give them Vitamin C and Glucosamine with MSN that I get from Costco.

    What do you feed the dog? At a minimum, fish oil (1000 mg/20 lbs of weight is a good amount) - helps with any inflammation, including arthritis, and glucosamine/chondroitin/msm for joints.

    I would not add vitamin C - dogs produce it on their own and don't need it unless there's a specific reason your dog is deficient.

    I want to start Tucker on Glucosamine w/MSN. Would it hurt to start Frankie (almost 5) and Macy (2) on it now as a preventative?

    Well I started the 3 of mine on Glucosamine w/MSM lastnight. Frankie woke up this morning scratching at his ear again.
    That poor dog can't handle anything except his kibble.
    *sigh*

    I'm going to give it another day and see how it goes...

    A lot of supplements have soy, check the label. If you want a soy-free one, go to GNC.

    He woke up with the bad ear again today so we're done with the ones I bought. I'll try GNC, thanks. The label says the glucosamine source is shrimp, I should have known.
