When it comes to chow supplements touted as aids for a pet's ailing joints, a new report finds some contain none of a particularly expensive therapeutic ingredient they are advertised to contain.

White Plains-based ConsumerLab.com, an independent supplement testing firm, revealed two pet supplements tested had no chondroitin, an organic compound clinical studies suggest may help prevent the breakdown of joint cartilage.
The full Newsday story can be read here.

A description of Consumer Labs' testing can be found here, on their website. Subscriber status is required to see the full list, including those brands that didn't pass. It's important to remember that Consumer Labs assays chemical composition; it doesn't evaluate health claims made by supplement manufacturers.
