Does anyone out there use Dasequin(sp?)?  I have been usin GlycoFlex III for Truman, but a vet recommended Dasequin, but I am a little leary because he also recommended Hills j/d food....

Truman is 10 mos old and has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia.  No arthritis yet, but his hips are VERY loose.  I am giving him GlycoFlex III, 500 mg buffered C and 1200 mg Fish Oil, all 2x per day.  I just want to make sure I am doing ALL I can for him...he's such a good boy and WAY too young for this!!!

I am using "Country Life" Buffer-C 1000mg.  I read the buffered is easier on the digestive system and is better absorbed in dogs.  So far, I have only been able to find buffered C at a health food store...
