Can anyone recommend any tasty (prescription) joint health dog food with high glucosamine, MSM, omega 3 and 6’s but no corn, rice, gluten and other bad stuff?
Alternately a tasty supplement with glucosamine, MSM, omega 3 and 6’s. My dog used to eat such a pill (NaturVet hip and joint) thrown in with his kibble, but no longer. He won’t eat them even coated with peanut butter or the like.
I’m sure some of the more knowledgable posters will reply but in the meantime go over to the “Dog Supplements” topic on the forum menu. There are several discussions there on what you’re looking for. I just started using Liquid Health’s K9 Glucosomine which was reccomended at my local feed store. My Greyhound doesn’t like pills & nothing agrees w/ him, so far so good with this stuff. I also use sardine & anchovy oil since salmon oil makes things ugly with him.
I’m pretty sure I know that none of the OTC joint foods even have close to a therapeutic dose of joint supplements and all the prescription ones I know of are junk.
Jefferspet dot com may be another place to look for different options.
I give my old lady turkey necks and chicken necks, because they have a lot of cartilage and connective tissue in them.
God bless the Turkey Necks!! Guaranteed 30 min of peace & quiet (except for the crunching)
I just ordered 30 lbs of turkey necks. I don’t even know what I was thinking.
Oh my! That’s a lot of necks. I hope not frozen or you’re going to have one bizarre ice cube in your bathtub 🙂
Yes, frozen. 🙁
My boys each had a turkey neck last night. But, unfortunately they only lasted about 5 minutes. They are crazy chewers! At least they don’t gulp (swallow) as bad anymore. The only thing that lasts longer than that are bully sticks or marrow bones. I think the bully sticks last a whole 10 minutes!
Turkey necks don’t last long, but they do sink their teeth into them, so they do a decent job as a toothbrush. One of mine even ate a marrow bone the other day. His poop broke into crumbles when it landed.
Well, Patty, since we’ve already “hijacked” this thread. Oops! Where do you order your turkey necks from. I’ve been buying Natures Variety from a feed store. They are very expensive and they don’t get them very often.
So far, my favorite place for turkey necks is My Pet Carnivore.
They are on sale at MPC this month. Usually, I get them from my local butcher.
