    This contains soy and dextrose, as well as other ingredients besides glucosamine and msm, and I cannot find where they get their ingredients- nothing about sourced from USA....

    This product is sold at veterinary offices and has over 700 five star reviews. Im not a rep for the company, I'm just putting it out there as an alternative. Personally, I do not believe that anything made for the pet market has any higher quality ingredients than the stuff made for humans. Human glucosamine supplements are just as good for dogs and cost less. If you want to make sure you are getting top quality ingredients, give your dogs human glucosamine + MSM supplements. Don't take it from me, you can research it on the internet or ask your vet

    I am sure it is sold at many or most vet's offices, which is one of the reasons I wanted to look up the ingredients compared to the NuJoint supplement. Vets will sell whatever to make a buck-- the main website for this product has a "Veterinarian Login" portal - obviously a big cash cow for vet offices. NuJoint only has the 5 main ingredients, no additives or sugar, and why do most of these supplements contain soy- that I don't understand- because that is one of the main ingredients to stay away from in dog food. I am not trying to upset you.... promise.... just looking into the product you shared is all, that is what I do whenever anyone brings up any product, whether it is food, shampoo, treats....I am always curious about ingredients, so I wanted to point those out to you- not to upset you, but to share that information with you.

    This is the ingredients in NuJoint Plus:

    250 mg Glucosamine Sulfate
    125 mg Chondroitin Sulfate
    125 mg MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
    50 mg Vitamin C (Ester-C)
    Flavored with Real Chicken Liver

    No other ingredients or additives.

    I do notice that there is less mg per tablet though.
