    DefaultGlucosamine

    Just wondering if I should see the vet before I start giving Guinness a supplement or if I should just go ahead & get some for him? What brand would anyone recommend I use? What about the dosage? Right now he's 5.5 yrs old & 97lbs.

    Thanks

    Glucosamine HCL is best. Dosage is 500 mg per 25 pounds of body weight, so 2,000mg. If he has arthritic changes, I would double it.
    I feed the powdered horse stuff simply because it is cheapest and easiest to use for multiple dogs.
