Supplementing your pet’s diet with Super Joint Enhancer

Super Joint Enhancer is one of the more versatile and economic nonprescription joint supplements on the market.

Super Joint Enhancer is one of the more versatile and economic nonprescription joint supplements on the market. I have found it to be often as effective as some of the more expensive supplements prescribed by veterinarians such as Cosequin. With its combination of glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM, this wonderful synergistic combination of nutrients is often quite helpful in managing inflamed and diseased joints.

Most pets will take this tasty beef and pork chewable tablet. And for those finicky pets and even cats, this product also comes in a soft chew.  It is safe to use in any aged pet, and while there is no data on using glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM supplements in a preventative fashion, there are rarely any side effects to using this product as part of a good nutritional program. Being a nutritional supplement, it is not regulated by the FDA; however, it is safe to use with many prescription drugs given by veterinarians such as Metacam, Rimadyl, Deramaxx and Tramadol. I find the use of nutritional supplements like Super Joint Enhancer most effective when combined with other supplements such as the antioxidant Proanthozone, and essential fatty acids such as Nordic Natural Omega 3 fatty acids.

I have only seen rare digestive side effects such as excessive gas or diarrhea, but most pets tolerate this product just fine. If you are considering using it in a diabetic on insulin, first check with your veterinarian, as in occasional situations, using glucosamine products can sometimes make sugar regulation more difficult.

  1. I accidently gave my little poodle her meds this morning in some Turkey slices inside Pet Pocket, but she didn’t eat it all, I don’t know how much she consumed. Should I wait until her next dosage time to give them to her again because I’m afraid she might get the wrong dosage otherwise. It’s Vetmedin, Enalapril, and Generic Lasix. Would you get back to me, so I know she’ll be okay. She has Congestive Heart Disease. Thank You, M. Keenan

  2. I recently purchased the super joint enhancer for my 14 years old lab/chow mix. She instantly got the yellow, runny, shoot out the rear squirts. I guess she is one of those rare instances. I’m so dissappointed.

    Sorry to hear about reaction to the super joint enhancer product. Perhaps consider alternative supplement such as glycoflex II from 1800petmeds.
