My dog is having joint pain.
Is it good to feed him with glucosamine supplement?
I wouldn’t bother.

I would have the dog examined by a veterinarian and see what is recommended.
A vet will likely recommend cosequin. I’ve put many peoples dogs on it who could barely walk anymore and within a couple months of daily cosequin it made a huge difference. That’s probably the only over the counter joint supplement I would recommend.
My pup needed Vitamin C supplements, and I had issues finding one that she could absorb. I saw the most improvement when I gave her blueberries as treats. Her body was able to absorb those. The Vitamin C supplements I bought for her were for dogs, but I don’t think her body was absorbing it. If you can find glucosamine in its natural form, I would recommend that
Would you recommend cosequin vs Dasuquin? With or without msm? Any side effect?
COSEQUIN DS seems to a popular choice with pet owners. This study is very enlightening if you want to take some time out and read: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5356289/
Most dogs receive a complete and balanced diet – including necessary vitamins and minerals from commercially processed dog food, according to the FDA. Dogs fed a homemade diet may need supplements. “It’s absolutely critical, but it should be done to match the diet, You can’t just create a meal and give your dog a vitamin.” Check with a veterinarian or nutritionist for help in determining what, if anything, is needed.

As a pet parent, you want to do all you can to make sure your dog lives a long, healthy life. Before you decide whether or not your dog should take vitamins, you need to know the nutritional essentials all dogs need. Good nutrition starts with what you feed your pet every day and they will either prescribe a prescription dog food or give you a prescription for dog supplements.

My little guy has elbow arthritis, luxating patella/dislocating kneecaps on both sides and hip-dysplasia and used to have severe joint pain. Over the past few years I have done extensive research on natural joint supplements and found that a combination of anti-inflammatory Omega 3s, CBD oil, Turmeric and Green Lipped Mussel has helped his mobility to improve the most.
I only use whole food based (synthetic free) supplements to avoid artificial fillers, preservatives and synthetic ingredients/chemicals that processed pet foods (both kibble and canned) are filled with. Be sure to avoid high-carb processed diets that promote inflammation.
He is now 8 y/o (on an anti-inflammatory home-cooked diet with whole food based supplements) and loves running again, moves around with more ease than when he was 4 y/o (on kibble/canned processed foods). I just wish I had switched to a fresh diet and natural supplements sooner. Here is what works for us to support his joints;
