PetMeds® Maintaining Healthy Joints in Pets with Super Joint Enhancer

Similar to us humans, as pets age they may need supplements to help them stay active and healthy. When it comes to a pet’s joint health, Super Joint Enhancer is a wonderful glucosamine, chondroitan and MSM supplement that I’ve found to be an excellent economic alternative to more expensive supplements of its type often sold at veterinary offices. Super Joint Enhancer is available as a chewable tablet, soft chew, and liquid

Super Joint Enhancer has performed wonderfully for me in helping maintain healthy joints in aging pets, plus pets seem to love the beef and pork chewable formulation.  Super Joint Enhancer is also available in several forms including soft chews and a liquid for finicky pets. Common concerns from pet owners have included whether it was safe to use super joint enhancer with other prescription medications used for arthritis, and in most cases the answer is certainly yes. Other concerns include whether the product may cause weight gain and/or aggravate sugar control in diabetic pets, and while both are possible, I have not personally seen these to be major problems in pets on this supplement. The only other rare side effect I have seen is occasional diarrhea

Do you give your pets joint supplements? If so, which brand? Do you find them to be helpful for your pet’s joints? Or if you’ve given your pet Super Joint Enhancer, tell us what you think!

    Is raw pork and raw pork bones ok for cats and dogs to eat?

    I would not feed raw pork bones to dogs and cats

  3. We’ve been giving our 80 lb. Lab/Great Pyranees SUPER JOINT ENHANCER for about 18 months and he’s regained his ability to move and play like he did before arthrits set into his rear joints. “Chance” slowly began moving more easily and once again is racing around doing his favorite pass time ~ chasing squirrels. He never catches one, but now the excitement he feels each time we let him out the door can almost be felt in the air! He’s enjoying his life again! THANK YOU ~

    You are very welcome.

  5. Our 10 month old yellow lab had orthoscopic surgery on both elbows 2 months ago for partially formed medial coronoid processes and early osteoarthritic changes. He is doing fairly well in the recovery process and therapy seems to be helping reduce the limp. It was suggested he take Dasuquin daily forever. Can dogs be given human glucosamin or glucosamine chondroitin as a less expensive alternative to the Dasuquin? Where can I get a list of human medications that are safe for dogs?

    I prefer the clinically tested products from veterinary medicine on dogs. Try the alternative glycoflex III from 1800petmeds or perhaps super joint enhancer. Also consider supplementing with the antioxidant proanthozone as well long term.

  7. Can I give my dog both dasaquin msm with the super enhancer?
