Titan has been on a joint health supplement for quite some time. Ever since he had his first injury with his leg, the vet asked if he was taking a supplement. Of course, he wasn’t. She suggested Dasuquin for Titan.
The program was quite easy. Two (2) tablets daily for six (6) weeks and then one (1) tablet daily for maintenance. Since Titan will not take the tablet like he does his fish oil pill, I break it in half and put in his food. He’s been doing very well on the Dasuquin however, I’ve always been looking for other alternatives.
PSCPets was kind enough to send us their Joint Supplement to try. The program works the same way. The difference? These are soft chews, which is a major plus. (A++++) Titan ate these right out of my hand, like he does his Heartgard.
The difference between the Dasuquin and PSCPets Joint Supplement is:
- Lesser mg of Glucosamine/Chondroitin
- No Avecado
- Contains Ascorbic Acid, Manganese, and Vitamin E
I only used it a few days and I probably should have delayed our trial because Titan was already acting a tad gimpy with his rear leg, but we tried it.
- One of the first things I noticed right off the bat was Titan would eat it like a treat. He loves the smell and chews it right up.
- The other thing I noticed was it gave him major gas! Oh my, it was harsh!
So Two (2) days ago I put him back on his Dasuquin and the gas is gone. Cool, right? So I’m not sure how well or not the PSCPet Joint Support would work but I decided to opt again the flatulence and go with what has worked. Matter of fact, I just order the Dasuquin in a soft chew in hopes Titan will like it better and take as a treat.
If you’re looking for a joint supplement, you could try either of the two above or there are also many other options out there. My vet tech suggested liquid glucosamine and said it’s been proven to aid dogs a lot quicker than the tablets. I am still researching this one so if any of you are using a liquid, please let me know what kind.
Oh and thank you to PSCPets for sending me a trial joint supplement.
Note: I did not get paid by PSCPets to write this review nor was it a requirement of my sample of Joint Support.
