Good evening to all! I would like your opinion on this. The vet advised me to give a nutritional supplement that is for the joints. It's called cosequin.
I don't know if you know if vets in America generally recommend it. Here in Greece it is very expensive, i.e. 120 pills cost 120 euros. It goes without saying that I am willing to buy it, I would just like to hear a second third opinion because you know sometimes doctors advise many specific products for their reasons.
Tnks a lot.

Yes it's a very good supplement made by one of the most reputable pet supplement companies. And it's expensive here too, I get it.
The company has done a lot of really good studies about it, and their claims are proven to be accurate. Definitely worth it for a dog on three legs.
Here's an article we wrote about it a long time ago, still helpful info.
