    DefaultGlucosamine / Chondroitin source?

    Quick background: Our Buddie had a TPO in both hips about 3 years ago and has been limping and showing signs of discomfort lately. Her follow-up X-Rays came out fine so the specialist suggested losing 10 pounds (yikes!) and a daily Glucosamine/Chondroitin (at a dosage of 1500/1200---I think).

    Can anyone give a good recommendation on where to buy this stuff? I want a quality product, not something filled with cheap fillers, low quality stuff, etc. My vet says it's way too expensive at her office and I could find it cheaper online, but I have no idea where to start. I went to the Drs. Foster and Smith site but that was WAY to overwhelming so I thought I'd start with the experts….

    Thanks for any suggestions you have!

    I've been told the human version of that is just as good and much cheaper. I just bought some for Mocha but haven't started it yet. It was like $35 for 108 capsuls but they had them BOGO free so I got two for that price.

    i order it through amazon- same price, same exact product that dani uses- just a bit lower shipping and i'm a lot more comfortable with sellers on amazon than on ebay. don't know why, just am.

    also- i was offended at first when i was told my dog needed to lose weight- but it really helps. gabby only had to lose two-three pounds- but it really, really helps.

    Consumer Reports recently evaluated G&C and listed Costco's (member's warehouse club) G&C as being #1 (best value, highest quality) of about 20-25 products (some were seriously lacking in potency). It's what I also use for me.

    I recently bought a refill, I think it was about $21.83 (+ tax) for 170 tabs, each tab = 750 mg. Gluc., 600 mg Chondr.; suggested human dose is 2 tabs/day.

    Bottle is labeled:

    KIRKLAND
    EXTRA STRENGTH

    Glucosamine HCl 1500 mg
    Chondroitin Sulfate 1200 mg
    Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]

    Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":
