    @brunosmom you can give it whenever you want. well i probably wouldnt give it to puppies but anytime after one year old i would say is good.
    @Fontanafox yes the msm is an anti inflammatory if i remember right. you can get joint med with all 3 things in it to. i have given sarah one with glucosamine, chondroitin, and msm.

    We went to ok this last weekend and only gone for 24 hrs. We had a friend of ours come in and let the boys out. I texted him several times through out the day askin if everything was ok and he said yes great all times. We got home about 530 go into see the boys and lex couldn't walk at!!! He wouldnt put any type of pressure on it and I had to carry his hefty bitt outside to potty, and Jeff carried him in to the couch, he was hurting so bad that he was shaking! So I texted our friend and asked he he noticed him limping at all, he said no but wasnt paying attention, sorry. I said u would have noticed it, it's not it fault just checking that he might have slipped or landed wrong. He was in our bedroom and he couldnt get up on anything. Mon he was able to put some pressure on his leg and u could tell he felt better. Tues he was wanting to run around like a kid, but was still stiff.

    He will be 2 in feb and has never had a problem w his back legs. He hardly ever jumps off things, just slides lol.

    Do u think he's just stiff and needs some glucosamine? What do y'all think would help?

    Good morning.
    My EB has Hip displasia and arthrosis. He could not realy walk after we adopted him.
    I started to give him Devil's crawl and 100% greenlipp-mussel-extract.
    Unbelievable...
    after 4 Weeks he could walk with no problems.
    greenlipp-mussel is a absolutly natural product what you can feet your dog constadly.
    since we just moved over here to the us , I need to find a place where to buy theese products here in the usa. if i cant find the quality here, i dont care. i will order like before in germany.
    if here is someone who can help me where to buy the greenlipp mussel, please contact me.
    thank you so much

    I also give Mocha Glycoflex III that the vet prescribed Her because she limped about 7 months ago. I order it on Amazon.com because its cheaper there. But I will get some Salmon oil for Her also. Thank you for the advice!!

    When Dexter had puppy limp, I used Green Lipped Mussle powder, sprinkled on his feed.

    I have never heard of this. Have you googled to see where it may be carried if anywhere? Online is the best way for me to buy most everything. lol

    You can get it from germany, thats where i am from. but i did not find the pure greenlp mussel. but they send it from germany to me. lucky me, beeing still in contact with the rescue team i worked with.
    the powder is very good. my jonatan could not even walk and after a view weeks he had no problems nomor. greenlipp mussel powder does not heal him, but it helps with his problem, beeing without pain

    @cowsmom Are you still using the Cosequin DS together with the salmon oil?? Bella has been diagnosed with luxating patellas so I need to get her on something that will help that. The vet just said put her on glucosamine and that was all ... but I want to give her the best chance I can.

    Yes Sarah is still on joint,meds n salmon oil. I had to change the cosequin due to it being made of pork but otherwise I would probably still be using it. She is on a natural joint med made out of chicken I get from petco. I use salmon oil still but am experamenting with flaxseed oil also. There is one with green lipped muscle that I believe is sold by foster n smith but have never tried it. With ms allergy I try to keep it simple. @kazzy220

    We use Glucosamine with Chondroitin. Our first bulldog, Winnie, had hip dysplasia and our vet started her on it at age 2. You would have never known she had hip problems. She ran, jumped, walked and lived a very full Life right up until she was 12 1/2. We started Oliver on it at 6 months old and he will probably be on it his entire Life, as the benefits are just tremendous. I also believe the Glucosamine with Chondroitin was helpful during his recovery from TTA surgery.
    Life is always an Adventure with Oliver!
