Is Glucosamine and Chondroitin ok for horses?
The reason I ask is because my dog had a broken leg some years ago. She is a very athletic dog. The vet said she would most likely develop arthritis later and sure enough, she started limping and hitching up her leg sometimes, and it wasn't getting much better.
Well a year and two months ago I started her on the maximum dose of Glucosamine and Chondroitin, for her weight.
I didn't expect miracles, and I didn't expect this to work for a few weeks. Well, the oddest thing was that within less than a week, she had stopped limping and hitching that leg! And she hasn't done that ONCE in 14 months! (and bear in mind she had been showing some signs of discomfort for quite a while, on and off. She never seemed to be "in pain" generally, but it was just like she had trodden on a little stone sometimes when we were out on a walk)
I spoke to the vet about this and he agreed to try it.
Well I was very happy because the Glucosamine/Chondroitin really did work like a miracle for her!
