Not too long ago we discovered Spyro's itching was due to some arthritis in his back. Doc suggested before that he start taking glucosamine because he is an old fart. Now we are being told to up the dose because he actually needs it. Before he was getting 100mg in a skin and coat powder. Now we're upping it to 250mg. Doc says its ok to use up all the powder and double what we're giving him to make 200mg/day (like you would when starting) so we won't have to double the dose when we get pills in.

I'm torn between the two. Both have really good reviews. Cosequin is more expensive but is sold in Petco and Petsmart. Glycoflex is cheaper but I'd have to order it. Considered the human version but we'd have to cut each pill into 3 pieces. I feel like I'm a little too uncoordinated to do that.

Cosequin has less molecular sized condroitin and glucosamine,as my vet said. No sense giving your pet something your pet can't absorb. I would use the Cosequin.
