Default Supplements?

Anyone give their basset some kind of supplement? I'm wondering if that may help with some of lucy's current issues. My uncle told me they use this one and their dog is 13 and runs around like a puppy.... but wondering if anyone has anything they use thats great for their basset? Maybe something good for the back?

our two older (5 and 8) are on Dasuquin joint supplement chews every day.

young one (3) is not

All three are on daily cranberry chews to hopefully prevent urinary infections

The Dasuquin has been great for the luxating patellas and joint stiffness

Phycox....got it from a vet when our old Golden-mix was failing in the rear....worked very well, but he got to where he couldn't tolerate it...it uspset his tum. This is the ONLY thing that made a difference for him , and we tried it all.

Wow! I'm reading excellent reviews from people online for both of those aswell.

Have you guys every bought anything like this online? I get nervous doing so but it would be so much easier. Do you know of any safe and trustworthy sites? 1-800-PetMeds?

The placebo effect for supplements is high 60% or greater so testimonial are rather useless . That said the general cause not harm except to you pocketbook


In other news, herbal supplements are truly placebos – denialism blog

Glucosamine is minimally effective in studies...wouldn't hurt to try, but did us no good. Phycox has that as well as phycocyanin as an active ingredient, among others. It is effective in studies...see attach. It can be hard on liver and kidneys tho....use minimal dose.....don't exceed.

Having trouble inserting image...so will try to attach....it is in my gallery tho.

have used fosters and smith for routine stuff and prescriptions as well

for us, the dasuquin difference is like night and day. sophie's patellas were so bad we were looking at surgery. i would have to manually "reset" them several times a day.

since the dasuquin she has never had a problem.

blondie was beginning to limp on right front leg. Gone since the dasuqin. no placebo here.....very clear results.

that said, it may not be the answer for every dog or every situation.
