Painkiller or glucosamine/chondroitin for dog with osteoarthritis

2017 March 14

Our dog, a boxer, is 6 years old and has osteoarthritis. The veterinarian prescribed Previcox. In how far does this medicine correspond to your medication? Otherwise I would like to consider that.[glucosamine-rechts]

The medication your dog is receiving is an inflammatory painkiller. This helps only temporarily, but does not take away the cause of the problem. Moreover, painkillers are not healthy in case of long-term use.

Glucosamine and chondroitin focus more on dealing with the real problem: joint wear. Our products also lubricate the joints and have a pain killing effect. Furthermore, they are not unhealthy in case of long-term use. It almost sounds too good to be true. Yet, our experiences and those of our customers with glucosamine and chondroitin in dogs are very good, for dogs the products even have better results than with people. You could try a bottle of glucosamine. It will last several months. For the dosage, you can look here. In some cases as a result of the use of glucosamine the dog no longer needs any painkillers.

If after a couple of months you notice that glucosamine has not the effect you hoped and wished for, you may consider complementing glucosamine with chondroitin.
