  • Dog Pill Question

    I've been told by many dog owners that I should give my 5 year old, 90 lb LAB over the counter Clucosamine & Chondroitin. The dose 2 tablets daily. My question is, do I give her both at the same time? Morning meal or evening meal? Or one in each meal. Each owner has a different answer and reason. What would you do?

        Glucosamine and Chondroitin actually come together as an all in one pill a lot of places. I know stores like Petsmart sells the stuff so maybe if you go on a pet meds website or just research the internet in general, you can see how much they administer and tell from there.

          I would only give my dog medicines or supplements that my vet has approved. Please call them for dosage before you give them to your pet

            You guys got me worried, and I guess I should have called the vet first, and I just did. They said it's okay to give her the human stuff. One at each meal... I just figured they wouldn't give me any info over the phone without seeing her first..
            Thanks for your info everybody...

              If you purchase Pedigree Large Breed food it has Glucosamine and Chondroitin in the dog food. I started using it for our lab Shadow as soon as she was off of puppy food. I figured that way I couldn't give her too much and didn't have to buy it seperatly.

                  Tim, can you ask them if they think it's ok? My vet says it's ok.. That's what I mean, everybody has different answers.
                  Huff, I'll check into the Pedigree.. Right now she's on IAM's Healty Naturals. Has every healthy thing in it..

                      My DD gives this to her 2 labs in a combined pill. It is made specifically for animals, though.
                      She orders it from somewhere. Her male lab is 14 and it helps his joints a lot.
