I only give Daisy Glucosamine, so I don't know about the Chondroitin. I bought "8 in 1" time release tablets from Drs. Foster & Smith. It is 500 Mgs. per tablet. The dosage goes by weight. Daisy gets 2 per day. It also has Vitamin C and MSM. My vet said that was all Daisy needed, since she's not very arthritic.
I'm giving it as a sort of preventative measure since she's going on 8 years old. Vet said it couldn't hurt. I think it's doing her some good. She seems more limber.

Thanks, what I ordered is from Doctors Foster & Smith. It is called Joint Care 1 +. Each tablet contains
Glucosomein 500 mg
Chondroitin 100 mg
Perma canaliculus 100 mg
Vitimin C 100 mg
Citrus bioflavonoids 10 mg
Zinc 2 mg
Manganese 1 mg
For their weight the bottle says to give 2 tablets a day.
I use Glucosomein and Chondroitin for myself too. I have my own bottle from Wal Mart. I have been using it for months and it does help me with my joint aches and pains. I have Bursitis in my shoulders and it helps that.
The vet told me she did not think this product would help Sadie with her particular problme with the herniated disk in her back. However, she did say there was some arthritis in her back. And Pooh Bear is showing signs of arthritis too. I don't think it would hurt.
I have a 11 years retriever who has arthritis on his hips. I used the tablets from Dr. Foster, also I bought the big bottle of liquid form of Glucosamine with Chondroitin +MSM from Costco, actually for myself, but I do not like the taste. So I've been giving 1 tablespoon mix with his meal everyday. Its seems to lessen his pain, he runs around now with Charlie. Still scrawny and old looking. I do not want to overfeed him, the weigh will affect the pain on his hips.
Sadie was eating grass when I let her outside after work. She has a bit of a tummy ache. No wonder with all the Rimaldy she has taken. Question: Should I give the Rimadly and the Glucosomine suppliment at the same time?
