    A lot of people use people ones, but if your dog has allergy issues, they contain ingredients that would aggravate them.

    I've heard really good things about Fresh Factors. In fact, I'm going to order it for my dog.

    I give Puff the same G&C as I take, no problems.

    We use the Kirkland G&C (house brand, sold only at Costco) @ tab G = 750 mg; C = 600 mg.

    A couple years ago, Consumer Reports rated this brand as the highest quality & lowest price.

    We just use the people kind also. I believe we've had the Meijer brand the last several times. We also wait until they go on a buy-one, get-one sale.

    I know a lot of people use cosequin DS, but I think you have to get it from your vet.

    My mom's older dog takes this stuff and it has helped her a ton:

    Cosequin DS here, on recommendation of Jes's ortho vet.

    You can get it on eBay, many farm supply stores, or use the human Cosamin DS from places like Costco, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. Most vets do sell it, but I think it's normally a lot higher than the alternatives.
