My gorgeous elderly dog, (over 13) has benefitted hugely from this particulat addition to his daily diet. He was extremely creaky in his joints, and although Goldies have something of a reputation for being greeedy eaters, mine is actually rather choosey, so I was somewhat relieved when he gobbled up his dinner with two very generous teaspoons of this product. It certainly seems to make life easier for him with no subtifuge of disguising the actual gel. It very obviously smells of chicken, and though I've not personally eaten it, I imagine it tastes as such! From the first morning after trying two very generous teaspoons of the gel-like substance on his main meal of the day in the evening, he appeared more comfortable with his body, able to walk easily, after waking up in the morning. It's not a miracle 'cure', you cannot cure arthritis or old age, but you can make life more comfortable for your beloved dog. Only down-side, it seems to make him a bit thirstier than before. If you're concerned about your creaky pet, check him or her out with the vet first, and if he or she approves, give this a whirl!
