There are so many of these products with different potencies of glucosamine/chondroiton sulfate that it's best that you follow the label's dosing instructions. Anecdotal recommendations are usually to treat initially at 7-15 mg/lb daily of the chondroitin component. After 4-6 weeks if a positive response is seen dosage may be halved or given every other day. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
