Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog Simba!!! You may consider trying something like Cosequin sprinkle capsules https://www.chewy.com/dog/dp/101453?utm_source=google-product&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=f&utm_content=Nutramax&gclid=CjwKEAjwgo6_BRC32q6_5s2R-R8SJAB7hTG-ZGv0_362yP_81CRm9DIYArsarV9lrtxUmYxfioBOkBoCGijw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
which you can pull open and sprinkle on your dog's food that they already eat or onto a small amount of wet food or a piece of bread/etc. Most pets like the taste of this product in my experience.
Another option if you have problems getting him to take the supplement daily would be talking to your vet about Adequan injections. These are shots your vet gives that work similarly to the joint supplement. Initially you have to get them twice a week for a few weeks, then can switch to once or twice monthly. Just another option to consider if your pup is hard to medicate!
Here is an article on arthritis treatment options and you can read more about Adequan at the very bottom: http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=A&S=0&C=0&A=587
