    My vet recommended Dasuquin so I started that about a month ago. I asked her about the human version but she believes the ones made for dogs worked better. But she is probably hoping I buy it from her which is a no can do. Half price through Amazon.com. Still not as cheap as the human version..

    I'm buying dasuquin with msm from Santa Cruz Biotechnogy. 150 ct, large dog bottle is $56 with free shipping i think. compared to my vet selling 84 count bottle for $80+. lol. seeing good results with it. my 10 1/2 year old lab was pretty active today and ran good on marks. this has been the cheapest place i can find it. if you all find it some place cheaper or need more info about this place, just pm me.

    All of these things fall into the neutraceutical category. which means not regulated. Buy from a manufacturer that you know, and you should be OK. Most of my dogs get the Schiff brand from Costco. $15.00 for a big bottle. Love it. Has MSM in it, and everything. The dogs even share it with me, since it's human grade.
    Used to do that too. Problem is, the human side is not regulated either. Though human grade, what's the absorption rate and amount of active ingredient really absorbed? Doubt generics have it (I work in Pharma, and though that may make me untrustworthy, you DO get what you pay for), Osteo bi Flex, the brand name, has the data. Nutramax has the data. I'd rather give the product that has the highest rate of active ingredient available for you. For me and the dog. YMMV. Luckily I can afford it, though I do price shop. My vet will price match. I'd rather he make the profit then someone else.

    When I get time this week, I'll dig around and find the Nutramax info.

    I just mentioned this as the above comments from both of us are something else to consider.

Both girls have done well on it. People are usually pretty surprised that my 9 3/4 year old acts like a young dog.
    This is exactly what I use. I have noted a big difference in the seniors when on it. My old girl (13) gets two- the others who get it, only get one. I notice a difference in her if I run out for a few days, also.

    Went to a talk the other day on Dasuqin is the newer stuff, has an extra ingredient, plus as everyone is hesitant to switch after great results on cosaquin, they've recently made dasuqin cheaper, than cosaquin, but I think it's some sort've promotional thing with coupons(Yuck).

    I've tried several joint supplements for my knee most are junk, I use Triple-Flex from Costco (Gul-condrotin&MSM), works for my knee, so I put my 12yr. lab on it when she started to slow made her move significantly better until 16 when we lost her, very non-scientific study

    I too use NatureMade Triple Flex from Costco.

    Per tablet comparison:

    Cosequin DS PLUS MSM: Glucosamine 600 mg, Chondroitin 300 mg, MSM 250 mg Costs @ Costco ~ $0.22 Per tablet

    NatureMade Triple Flex: Glucosamine 750 mg, Chondroitin 400 mg, MSM 375 mg Costs @ Costco ~ $0.15 per tablet

    I had heard though that human Glucosamine etc has a coating on it that makes it less absorbant for dogs. Is that true? If not Costco here I come. We've been using stuff from Petsmart. Glucosamine, Pernia Mussel, MSM, and Chondroitin. I take the stuff from Schiff.

    I don't think so. I buy the stuff from Sam's Club that I take and give to the dogs. I feed wet. If I let it soak for 5 minutes the pill is dissolved. I figure the acids in the dog's stomach would work faster than that.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
