Glucosamine for dogs with joint issues?

2017 February 24

I have a dog with joint problems and would like to give him glucosamine, chondroitin and Omega-3 tablets. Can I use your products for my dog? If so, what would be the recommended daily amount of each product for a dog weighing about 40 kilograms.[chondroitine-rechts]

You can give these three products to your dog. We have many dog owners among our customers that do so. Mainly glucosamine and chondroitin are very effective with osteoarthritis and hip dysplasia Omega-3 is less effective and is therefore not really necessary (although it can’t hurt).

Glucosamine on its own is often very effective. The dosage for a dog weighing 40 kg is 2 capsules a day. If you mix the capsules through the food, then the dog will likely eat it without noticing. You may also give it orally. A third option is to open the capsule, which can be easily done, and pour the powder over the food.

Chondroitin E enhances the effect of glucosamine and is a good supplement. This means a dosage of 1 to 2 capsules a day. More information about the dosages can be found here.

It usually takes several weeks before the first improvements are noticeable.
