I looked up geriatric beagles. I am trying to convince Dave to do twice yearly well checks and then next time they see the vet, ask about fish oil supplements too.

We give fish oil! Wild salmon oil. And I gave Nebbers a probably-expired glucosamine last night (but does it really expire?)

Does the fish oil cause any tummy upset? Most likely the expiration just reduces the potency... depending how out of date.

No tummy upset from the fish oil. I think we give 1000mg once a day (we used to give twice a day but the vet said that was too much, we asked because Xerxes is such a little shrimp. Luc always got twice a day and we thought that was okay for Neb but I guess not. Didn't cause him any harm that we can see.) It's one capsule anyways. Right now we have Jamiesons if you guys have that in the US.

I checked last night, the glucosamine expired in April, so it should be fine, but yes, just a little less potent. I can't see it causing harm but what do I know.

Hopefully it helps you guys. I think it helps Neb and kept Luc as well as he was (such as he was) until 15.5 years old (as a bigger dog too).

I hope it helps! Which reminds me, we're almost out of fish oil.
