So I've been looking thru this section and I see quite a bit of info on older dogs that need a lot of help and I see a lot for puppies. But I need something for a dog just startign to have trouble with her hips.

Tinkerbell has seemed stiff occassionally in the past. but this weekend she was definitely having an issue. I gave her a low dose aspirin this evening with her supper and that seemed to really help. But it is obvious that I need to start a joint supplement program.

I'm thinking I need more than a preventive start but I also don't want to go to the maximum either, I don't think. Her hips are not bothering her all the time at this point and she's only 3. So any recommendations?

Thanks for the responses, I did see that glycoflex has 3 different levels, I'm thinking that maybe the second level would be a good choice to start with. And then as she gets older and if she gets worse, I could move up to the third level.

Tinkerbell is fine today, actually since abut an hour after I gave her the aspirin last night, she's been back to her normal self. Which is good.

JOY was diagnosed with ED at 9 months old. I have had her on GF III twice a day ever since. She is now 11 and just starting to get a little stiff when it's cold out. I can't say enough good things about it !!
So you have not needed to go with anything stronger in all these years? Maybe I should go with level 3 then.
