I want to start giving my dog Glucosamine, human grade. I am concerned about the add on ingredients at the end. Do these look ok to give to a dog?

Active ingredients per tablet:
Glucosamine hydrochloride 750 mg
Bovine sodium chondroitin sulfate (chondroitin) 200 mg
Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM) 250 mg
Manganese gluconate 8.8 mg
- Equiv. manganese 1 mg
Borax 8.8 mg
- Equiv. boron 1 mg

 

They are Natures Way Joint Restore

There are plenty of purpose designed dog glucosamine products on the market  to choose from.

Also you might want to look at Rose Hip Vital which is available in a dog preparation.

Most dog specific products come in powder form. I've dealt with 'odourless' and 'tasteless' powders with Nugget before, and the little turd refused to touch his meals. I'm done with filling empty capsules with powder 5 times a day.

 

I'll see if i can find dog specific capsules with decent amounts of gluc/chon/msm in them.

 

@sandgrubber Nugget is only 13mths old, but he is incredibly active, and i want to start using is as a preventative.

My two have Blackmore's Paw Osteocare    .. biggish circular treat .. you could break it into smaller bits to hide in other treats I guess.   Mine just gobble them, but then they are not fussy at all about what goes in their mouths.  Originally recommended to us by a rehab vet.   

Other people have had Dasuquin treats recommended.  They do come in large dog and small dog versions.

@Christine_72   Why do you want  1 year old  Nugget on supplements ,  does he have a problem,  I hope he is ok

He's incredibly active, he also jumps around like a gazelle! I would use it as a preventative. Prevention is better than cure.

I've seen zero evidence that glucosamine works as a preventative
