So I thought I would try these for my 8 year old Aussie that is starting to show signs of arthritis in his back legs. After reading reviews I figured I would be willing to try before taking my vet's advice and starting him on the awful chemical Rx. Started this in 12/23/22 and as of today 2/6/23 I have seen no change at all, at least not what I was hoping for. I am glad I bought the small size so not much money was wasted. He would turn his head at them and this boy is a treat freak so I turned it into the game of "give me your treat" so he would eat it before I got it. I am glad it works for some of your pets and I was I really hopeful it would work for my boy but.....😕 I guess it's on to the next
My Yorkie is 12 years old and we started giving these vitamins to her 10months ago as she was diagnosed with arthritis. She loves them. We give them to her as if they are treats. Didn't caused stomach issues nor diarrhea. Have bought them 3 times already. Highly recommend for senior dogs!
Honestly I don’t blame my dog for not wanting to eat these. The smell when you open the bag is overwhelming and I can only imagine how it doesn’t taste good. When I mix it into his food (since he doesn’t have much teeth anymore) it spoils the whole meal and my dog won’t eat it. The overwhelming smell makes ME start to gag while I prepare the food. I have seen my dog eat them and the it does help is back legs stop shaking, so I know the product works but it wont work if the dog refuses to eat it. I wonder if it’s every glucosamine chew or just this brand?
I have a Senior Dachshund and noticed he started limping and getting up slower as usual. His Vet recommended a joint supplement. I have been giving him these for aprox 2-3 weeks now and they seem to work. No more limping and the zoomies are back. Only downfall, they smell aweful and probably taste the same . I have to break them into little pieces and put Peanut Butter on them for him to eat it.
I have a 14 year dog and when I rescued her she wasn't on anything to help her with the arthritis. I started on this in January and she is doing better with her walks, movement and stairs.
These chews are perfect for our 11 year old doodle. She loves the flavor and thinks they are a treat! No more wrapping a tablet in a pill pocket. Fantastic!!
My 15 year old dog certainly enjoys eating them. But I've never noticed any significant improvement in his joint health, nor any decrease for that matter.
They might be a very good product, but unless there is a way to get my little dog (a Yorkie) to eat them, they won't do any good.
My old dog had good results with Cosequin, I gave him a tablet daily when he started to have problems standing up & walking. My senior Beagle mix has not had any noticeable change, but it could be an injury rather than an arthritic problem.
I used to get a different brand but looked into different options when my senior dog could not chew well. I tried these and they are still to difficult to chew but I can easily cut them into smaller pieces. My dog likes them, and they are more cost effective.
