The very first day I gave this to our achy, listless dog, he became more perky. I was amazed! I was thinking "that's impossible, how did it work so fast?" I never expected to see results that quickly. Over the past year, his joints had become stiff and sore and he would lie around most of the time, or lick his knees in the evenings. After his tablets, he was right back to jumping up onto the couch, cantering around the yard, looking more bright-eyed than he had been in at least 8 weeks. And he wasn't licking his knees!
Although it seemed expensive, it was money well spent. I've given Devil's Claw to our pony in the past, and was glad to see that is an ingredient in this as well.
Our dog doesn't seem to want the tablet without cheese or a pill pocket wrapped around it, so that adds a step, but he patiently waits for his Canine Senior each morning and seems to be much more comfortable throughout the day. He's been having these for about two weeks and I definitely think it is helping. I hope the good results continue.

Makes Old Dogs Younger
I bought this for a dog that "got old" over the winter. She sleeps more, is lame more, and is less tolerant. I was a little worried that she wouldn't want to eat the "pills", but she gobbles them right down like they are a special treat. She is more playful and less lame. Happy dogs make for happy owners! I refer to them as her "Old Dog Pills", but may have to start calling them "Young Dog Pills". :) I also like the combination of ingredients.

Shepherd with DM
I have a 9 year old over sized female shepherd with DM. Although I know this disease is chronic, SmartCanine Sr. is definitely keeping her healthy and comfortable. I noticed a huge difference in her coat and her overall well being. She is less hesitant about going up our small stair case and can jump up on the couch. She doesn't have a problem scarfing the tabs down either. I don't mind paying the $45 because she is SO much better on these tabs. Thanks SmartPak for giving my big girl a chance at enjoying her golden years!

I think it is working.
My 12 year old Boxer was having memory problems and having a hard time getting around the house. I use Smartpaks for my horse and love them, so thought I would give this a try for my beloved dog. He has been on it for one month now and I have noticed more pep and brightness from him, especially in the evening. The only reason I am giving this four stars is because it smells odd (kind of like cedar shavings) and my dog won't eat it with out being mixed in with wet food, but overall I would recommend it.

The DIffference it Has Made
Tess is a 13 year old, very active border collie. Is there any other kind? I had noticed some stiffness as of late. Did some research and decided to try SmartPak Canine Senior because it had all that I was looking for in the ingredients.
I noticed a difference in less then a month. While her hips are still a bit old lady, she now goes sailing over the cross rails with the panache of a much younger dog.
I thought the big bottle a good value and will continue to use it. Thank you SmartPak!

Amazing Improvement In My Dog
We moved to a new house in November and my 10 year old Sheltie could not make it up the steep stairs without falling or just running out of momentum. I started carrying her up and down because she was just so uncomfortable. We started giving her SmartCanine Senior in December. It didn't take long to see improvement and now in the middle of January she can go almost as fast up and down as she could when she was younger. I will definitely order this product again and would highly recommend it!
