    hello, i have 2 questions i was hoping someone could help me out on:

    1) is there any measured benefit to adding glucosamine supplementation to, oh say, eagle pack large breed puppy formula? this is a large breed puppy that is almost 5 months old. if so, how much supplmentation is recommended?

    2) does anyone have any experience using aloe vera juice added to the drinking water to help with itching/possible seasonal allergies? if so, how much juice-to-water?

    thanks.

    Roxy's "mildly displastic" and she gets 1000mg/day (two pills).

    The glucosomine IN the dog food is not enough if you really want to supplement, so I've heard.

    Feeding the food is not enough. It's not expensive for the pills I paid about $25 for 280? I think.

    Unlike their positive effect where joint damage is already present and needs to be treated, it is not proven that glucosamine and chondroitin do anything to prevent joint issues.
