Missing Link Ultimate Hip & Joint (Formerly Missing Link Plus Canine Formula)
Great Supplement for GSD
I live in a country where you cannot get quality dry dog food so I have to feed my dog a diet I cook. I love this supplement because I know that it fills the gap on any missing nutrients I failed to add to the dog's diet. I do wish they made this in a pellet form as it is hard to tell if dogs eat all the powder. My GSD was already starting to limp at age 1 after vigorous play with her ball and running on hard surfaces, so I decided to start her on the Missing Link with Glucosamine, I have seen no limping since starting her on this product. And she has a beautiful coat too with no dandruff, hot spots or other skin ailments.

Made a World of Difference
My 11 yr old lab mix had gotten stiff and she couldnt jump on the bed and wouldn't use the doggie steps. She and her 11 yr old sister have been on this product for 2 months now, and Lucky goes up and down the bed steps like a champ, even in the dark. They are both moving with a minimum of stiffness and dont seem to be in pain anymore. I even quit giving them the aspirin . HIGHLY reccommended!

Put my 7yr old Australian shepherd on this after noticing she was having difficulty getting up after laying down and was not her active self. Just a month into using missing link and she is back to herself! She now runs around again and gets up from laying down with no distress. Definitely a keeper on the menu! She can be a picky eater but eats the powder right down with her dog food.

So far so good
My 11 year old german shorthair/lab mix has been on the Missing Link Plus Canine Formula for about two months or so and it seems to be helping with his stiffness and joint pain. I have also lessened his activity level (jumping and bounding around and landing too aggressively on his older arthritic joints). In combination with this and Petco's Alleviate natural aspirin free pain reliever, he has been limping A LOT less. And if he does start limping, it seems to heal quicker to where he is back to normal and can continue going on walks. I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone dealing with an older dog with joint and arthritis problems. I tried a very large array of supplements over the past couple of years and I feel Missing Link has finally been the successful solution!

PROOF THAT IT WORKS!
Well, how foolish I was. I first purchased this for my daughter's old dog, who ended up having to be put down. She passed it back to me for our now 16 yr. old Basenji. I used it faithfully, but ran out, and did not re-order soon enough. I would guess our dog has been without it for a couple of weeks, and I've seen a HUGE decline in her mobility and spryness! MY BAD! Have the order placed now, and can't wait to start her on it again. I should have NEVER let myself run out. I love it, though, when there is PROOF that a supplement works! No wasted $$ with this product! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Most Effective Canine Joint Supplement
The effectiveness of a joint supplement can be hit or miss, and what may work for one horse or dog, may not work for another. This one has consistently proven itself effective on all of my dogs. I first tried this on one of my older dogs who also had problems with skin fungus. Within 2 weeks she was moving much better -- "trotting" along rather than walking slowly and was in a playful mood again. Her skin problems and tendency for yeast in her ears cleared up completely within a month. I recently started this on my two 8 year old Boxers, and again, within weeks I noticed a very marked improvement in movement (and they were already very active). One has some hip dysplasia (sp?) and I've been finding him up on the bed all the time! I assumed he just preferred his own bed on the floor, but I think the jump was probably too painful for him until now. I then decided to put my two terriers on it as well and both are showing increased flexibility and energy. My older Westie is also dropping some extra weight just because he is more active than ever. I highly recommend this product!
