      Older Dog Joint Health

      Hey ladies and gents. I have an 8 year old lab that’s starting to show his age. He had an injury to his rear leg last fall on duck opener and I shut him down for the season. He’s bigger, always has been, 85lbs and I know that’s part of the problem but he has been on Science Diet advanced age for 2 years that has the glucosamine in it. Still, he’s starting to limp some again. I’m not sure he has any hunting left in him but I want him to be healthy and happy for as long as he can.

      Is is there any additional things you guys do for your older dogs that work? Joint supplements or the like?

      I don't have to out run the bear. I just have to out run you.

      The 6.5 Creedmoor won’t make you a better hunter.

      Start giving him these, you can get them at WallyWorld for like $13 for a bag of 90. I have a lab that weighs roughly 88-90 pounds and I have been giving him these for the last couple years. You'd never guess he's 11 by how well he gets around and the energy he has.

      ^^Yep these chews from Walmart worked great for my pup, and i know others who use them as well. He was noticeably less stiff after a day of hunting.

      Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.

      We were also told to use these. Our lab had a bad back for a few years and these seemed to help. He was 12.5 unfortunately we just put him down a couple weeks ago.

      I used this stuff for my lab and it made a big difference. Just remember, once you start a supplement, you need to keep giving it every day. It takes time to build up in the system in order for it to help. You can also just buy glucosamine/chondrotin supplements for humans, but I found that the beef flavored stuff was the way to go. Much easier to get them to take it. Rimadyl also helps a lot, must get prescribed from a vet.
