Old dog with stiffness and joint issues
« on: May 10, 2019, 07:19 »
Hi, my old girl, a working Cocker spaniel is 12 years old, fit and healthy but has joint pain especially after exercise. I'm looking for recommendations for a dry food that contains the highest levels of chondroitin and glucosamine.
I've tried

Hello and welcome to the forum. I think you would be better off looking for a food without supplements. My feeling is that in cases of obvious arthritis and stiffness it is preferable to give supplements at the therapeutic dose. If added to food, the dog might not get a sufficient amount.  However, speak to your vet about it. I’ve heard that Nutraquin+ is helpful but is only available from veterinary practices.
Your post and comments may be helpful to others. Please remember to update your thread. Feedback to the forum is appreciated.
