    Hi all,
    I have 2 large GSD’s that are roughly 10 years old (both rescues). They are starting to show stiffness in their joints (one has some dysplasia) and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good, affordable food that will boost their health and help their joints?
    Thanks so much,
    Nicole

    I may be wrong but I’ve read that by the time dogs eat foods that have joint stuff added to it, it’s been cooked out. You’re better to add a joint supplement yourself.

    My vet said, if your going to add a supplement, go with “Cosequin DS”

    I feed my dogs Victor’s Joint Health grain free food. It has extra glucosamine added to it. But, like the others have stated, it is probably best to add a supplement to ensure that they are getting the full benefit of it.

    I definitely agree with Marie and C4C. Your GSD’s will need more than what is available in a food to help their joints. There are some threads in the Supplements forum on joint supplements. I am currently using some from Springtime Inc.
