My GSD has been on 2g Seraquin tablets once a day for about 3yrs, I started him on it when his first cruciate ligament went. It seems to be working fantastically as at 10 next month and 45kg he is showing no signs of stiffness. The xrays he had before his amputation showed no progression in the slight bit of arthritis he has in his left hip that was noted 3yrs ago before his TPLO surgery. I don’t find it overly expensive and is easily accessible though amazon. I suspect it is very similar to Dasuquin and it also contains glucosamine
Zuki Wuggafer 30/09/06 - 11/11/16. Right hind tripawd due to Osteosarcoma. He had a strong 5 and half months as a tripawd but unfortunately a secondary issue with his spine ended our battle. He loved life, loved our family and was the best dog I could ever ask for. Truly my first love, forever in my thoughts and heart.
