I posted a few weeks ago that I was starting Trouble on a liquid glucosamine that contains no shellfish (she's allergic).

The difference in this dog is amazing!  I had given her small doses of Tramadol off and on when she just didn't seem to be getting around real well, but just really wasn't happy with it and not sure I was getting any result from it.  I can tell you I am getting GREAT results from this product. She moves around as well as she did as a young dog.  I can tell a definite difference in her mobility.  She also LOVES it.  I put it on her food twice a day and she licks the bowl to a sparkling clean.

If you are using something that works, by all means don't switch.  This is for those out there that may not have started a glucosamine product and are facing allergy issues.

Here's some more information I just found about K-9 Liquid Health glucosamine for dogs form the 911 Health Shop website…

K-9 Glucosamine by Liquid Health Inc. 32 FL. oz.

K-9 Glucosamine by Liquid Health Inc. 32 FL. oz.

25% of all dogs will develop arthritis or joint ailments of some kind. K-9 Glucosamine contains essential nutrients that have been shown in clinical studies to prevent and dramatically improve the condition of animals suffering from joint ailments. For younger dogs, Glucosamine and Chondroitin aid in the prevention of arthritis while MSM promotes general good health. Supplements in a liquid form are shown to absorb more quickly & efficiently than tablets, offering faster results. Dosage Guidelines for Dogs and Cats: under 10 lbs. – 1/4 oz. in A.M. 10-24 lbs. – 1/2 oz. in A.M. 25-49 lbs. – 1/2 oz. in A.M., 1/2 oz. in P.M. 50-100 lbs. – 1 oz. in A.M., 1/2 oz. in P.M. over 100 lbs. – 1 oz. in A.M., 1 oz. in P.M. Mix into wet or moist food. Can also be mixed into water, using care to see that all is consumed. Maintenance: Dosage may be increased at any time. Higher activity level & cold weather may necessitate A.M. increase. After 6 weeks dosage may be lowered until desired level of maintenance is reached. To prevent arthritis, give one-half the dosage according to weight guidelines above. Ingredients: Glucosamine 500 mg Chondroitin 400 mg MSM 500 mg Manganese 10 mg Other Inredients: Purified Water, Glucosamine Sulfate, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Chondroitin Sulfate, Manganese Chelate.
