Large Dogs with Arthritis Need Supplements to Relief the Pain! Unfortunately it is common among large dogs. Our 9 year old Newfoundland started having difficulty going up and down the stairs and would limp around after getting up from lying down on the floor.
We took him to our vet and he prescribed Tramadol for his pain and gave us MSM powder to add to his food once a day. He did have some minimal improvement but it just wasn’t what he deserved. I spoke with some friends of ours who have an older Newf also and found out that they had been dealing with the same problems with their dog’s mobility. They shared some of this product that they had gotten from their vet with us to try. After only 3 days, our Newf was running around like he did when he was two years old! He no longer grunts or whines when he lays down or stands up and he races up and down the stairs. I have cut back on his Tramadol from 125mg per day to just 50 mg per day and I’m beginning to believe that we can probably stop it all together without any problem.
Best Joint Supplements for Dogs
I purchased the product through Amazon because my vet said that he didn’t have the product for his patients because it was expensive compared to the MSM powder and that the product essentially did the same thing as MSM powder for a lot less money. I beg to differ, but I have seen such a remarkable difference with my dog’s ability to get around that I’ll pay the $[...] extra bucks a month! My dog’s happiness is worth 1,000 times that!
