    No but it has more Glucosomine in than Synoquin which is very good when the insurance is paying :thumbup:

    I thought it looked quite good, saw it on another forum and just wondered if anyone used it

    We've used it - but TBH - I didn't see any remarkable results, and you can get the same (and better) supplements from Simply Supplements in Guernsey considerably cheaper.

    We are now on acupuncture, physio and ultrasound therapy with the supplements :D

    It looks pretty much the same as the type of scanner they use for checking pregnancy in dogs and humans - but gives off little electronic pulses that stimulate the collagen in the joint - I was assured it didn't hurt - and judging by the fact my girl was quite happy to sit there and let her use it was reassurance enough for me, as I know what a pernickety mare she can be.

    She had acupuncture first, followed by the ultrasound and then the treadmill under water :D

    never used it, that ultrasound therapy swarthy mentioned sounds good though.. would you say it is more beneficial as a preventative measure or is helpful at advance stages too?

    I can strongly recommend this for arthritis based on my own experience, especially if you can catch it early. Garlic & Fenugreek tablets - Dorwest my 11 year old Lab first showed symptoms 6 years ago and is still keeping up now with my 9 month old. This is the second dog this has helped and I can not rate it highly enough.

    Hope this helps

    I use garlic and fenugreek in the blended veggies for my two dogs. I also put in apple cider vinegar and turmeric, as both these promote healthy joints. Fenugreek also helps deter unwanted passengers.
