I was wondering if anyone knew the dosage G&C for a 7 lb dog? I was talking to my Aunt last night and convinced her to try it for both herself and her dog,but didn't know what dosage to tell her for her dog.Thanks in advance.

Sorry for not checking in more, my life has been so busy lately.Butt and Tub are doing great. Tub turned 1 yr 10 mths yesterday,it seems like he was just a wee puppy the other day:) I'm taking a couple days off next week so maybe I can come hang out and get caught up with everyone.

According to the supplement Raemi takes, 'Joint Max', a dog under 15 pounds should get 250 mg of Glucosamine HCl and 25 mg of Chondroitin Sulfate per day. After 6 weeks, if positive effects are seen, this can be reduced to a maintenance dose which is usually half of the original loading dose.
