Gracie, who's large for a doberman, has shown signs of joint problems. At around 9 months, off and on, we'd hear popping sounds coming from her rear lower part of her legs.

She just turned 1 year old, and the popping still doesn't seem to bug her at all. She plays rough with her 4 year old dobe sister. Yet, no cries of pain, etc.

I've read about how Hyaluronic acid helps joint problems. So, I went to a feed store and bought a supplement.  Fluid Action HA Powder by Finish Line. It comes in fluid, or powder form. It's for horses, cats and dogs. It also has glucosamine, msn, vitamin b & c, etc.

This is a new form of doseage, as it used to be only injectable.  I've also heard from other people with joint problems taking hyaluronic acid, but from other companies.

So, if this works on my dogs, then I'll put my hubby on people form for his back and osteoporosis.

Wish us luck!

I would be interested to hear what you think of this brand. I like HA a lot from joint lubrication but believe the liquid form is a must for maximum absorption - I have often used Synthovial 7 and liked the results I saw in my girl Gracie a lot, but it is expensive.

I have since found however that Celadrin has a more potent effect for joint lubrication and is less expensive.  Used in conjunction with glucosamine and I have seen the best results.  My five year old Golden, Gracie has grade II elbows and luxating patellas - a general mess orthopedically - but if I sent video of her daily running and hurdling excapades, you wouldn't believe she had any orthopedic problems at all. I credit celadrin, glucosamine, and good diet for this.
