What form does Dr. Lyon's Hip & Joint Supplements come in?
The supplement comes in both soft chews or chewable tablets that are easy to give to dogs.
What is the texture of the soft chews? What if I have to break them apart?
These are soft chews that can break apart easily, so you can get the right dosage.
What is the texture of the chewable tablets?
They are crunchy, but easily consumed by even small dog mouths.
Is there any difference between the performance of the chewable tablets and the soft chews?
The primary functional ingredients in the 2 products (Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM) are the same, so the performance of the products will be similar.
Can this supplement be given as a preventative?
It is ok to give to dogs that are not currently showing signs of hip and joint issues, as the formula is designed to help support and maintain healthy joint function and mobility. It is recommended to dose as normal, even when being used as a preventative.
Is this supplement suitable for all dogs?
Both the soft chews and the chewable tablets are a great supplement for dogs of all sizes and breeds. For the soft chews, we recommend giving to dogs over the age of 18 weeks, and for the chewable tables over the age of 12 weeks. Please follow the feeding instructions to determine the correct dosage based on weight.
Why should I include vitamins & supplements in my pet's diet?

Like in humans, vitamins and supplements can help support your pet's long-term health, regulating everything from digestion to muscle growth. Consult your veterinarian to determine the best vitamins and supplements for your furry friend.
How often should I give this supplement to my pet?
