My 9 year old spoo is starting to slow down, and our vet recommended a joint supplement, as it's too early for an NSAID. She recommended either Cosequin or Osteo Bi-Flex, and added that the Osteo Bi-Flex is usually cheaper. She also gave us dosage instructions, including during the 6 week loading period.

Has anyone had any issues with either supplement? Is there anything else I should know or think about before adding one?

I put my 8 year old maltese/poodle mix on Cosequin after an injury and observed that it helped him somewhat. His vet recommended Dasequin and said I should switch to that if I felt Cosequin wasn't working well enough. You could start with Cosequin and see how your dog does on that first.

Thanks. There seem to be many variations of both Cosequin and Osteo Bi-Flex. Lots to sort through.

Thanks, everyone. Since it's early days, I think Cosequin is sufficient for now, and the price seems manageable.
