    Good to know. I noticed this morning Pumbas eyes are funky his paws are a tad pinker then usual. I cleaned his eyes and instantly said to myself home cooking it is. I made a pot of ground turkey cooked some carrots and butternut squash cooked one egg and grounded the shell with 2tablespoons of organic flaxseed. Then chopped up a bunch of organic spinach and peels apples. I have the Health Extension joint mobility and just read the fine print that says it has traces of wheat. So now at a loss as to how to get his glucosamine in his diet. Any suggestions on this or any advice on what to add to his food? Oh I also put a handful of blueberries in the mix. Running to the store to get sweet peppers now am I missing anything? I used two pounds of ground turkey to start. No beans or lentils thinking of adding peas. Oh and I mixed in two teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar. Yes I have lost my mind today!

    No prescription needed... Amazon. My vet told us about it and he highly recommended

    Damn.. last ingredient is soybean oil *sigh*
    I never noticed it and might explain some things with Lambeau, as he is allergic to soy. CRAP

    I am going to start giving Jax GLM (green lipped mussel powder). It is supposed to be a natural anti-inflammatory and good for the joints.

    Interested in what brand of joint supplements people are giving. I see NuVet, Movoflex and Acti-flex but others are referring to glucosamine in general. My bully had been blood tested a while ago (8 years) and showed allergies to chicken. Nuvet and Movoflex both have chicken in them. Thank you!

    I'm going to be trying the GLM but I also just came across this Liquid Glucosamine I might try at some point - https://www.liquidhealthpets.com/

    The Liquid Glucosamine I buy is the one at Costco. All Liquid supplements are absorbed faster thought the system. Anything that’s liquid, oils are way better than hard capsules/ tablets. For Capsules, only about 50% is absorbed. Waste of money. The powder form is much better than capsules. I said this often for turmeric you need to add just a tiny tiny pinch of black pepper for its full potent to be absorbed n any silicon/plastic capsules is to be thrown away n just use whatever is inside into your dog’s meal. Our human capsules are not made for any dog’s digestion.

    I do give it to Nyala ONLY every other day and haven’t started Duke on it just yet. I don’t believe over supplementing too much when they are very young. They both eat very well, healthy n gets a lot of exercise. I find the problem with people they will boost all sorts in their pets when nothing is wrong with them. This is my opinion for young dog’s. Unless there is a health issue (like Jax) or eating grain kibbles or junk food, that’s another story. My friend has. 9yr old lab n a 4yr old mix husky. The 9yr old started limping due to the age. She gives him that liquid glucosamine from Costco and he now can run a bit more. She also gives him essential oils, bone broth etc. Herself she has knee issues so when she takes her dose so does Spud. Her 4yr old takes it only every other day like Nyala. In my opinion, a dog that is healthy and is around 5yrs old, should be the right time to start “certain” supplements but not everything that’s out there. I rather give or boost my dogs with produce. Bare in mind saying this, doesn’t mean it works for Nyala will work for all dogs. I just know I rather have all supplements if possible in liquid form. Intravenous is even better but that’s another story which won’t happen lolll.
