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!

My 10yo chocolate lab was having back problems. she was no longer jumping on the bed, the couch, or us! Hard to be a couch potato when you can't even get on the couch! I've had very good luck in the past with another lab and my horse with MSM so I asked the vet if I should start her on a supplement. She said yes and told me what dose MSM she should be on. After doing some research, I decided to get the SmartCanine Senior. I based my decision of the value of the supplement, that it had the right dose, and that it had some other ingredients that would hopefully also help support an aging Labrador. After being on it for 2 weeks, with 1 week of pain meds to help her out, she is back to normal! It has now been about 6-7 weeks since she has been on it and she continues to do well.
I emailed SmartPak customer service about a warning on the label that said "not for long term use." I got back a great, detailed response explaining why that label was there and that she is safe taking it long term.
My only complaint is that the pills are crumbly and cannot be split. My dog gets 3 per day and I would prefer to give her 1.5 twice a day to split it up but I can't because the pills just turn to dust. Oh well, it is working with her getting 1 in the am and 2 in the pm. I'm very happy that my dog feels better!

Smart Canine Senior
Bunker is an elderly rescue dog who travels regularly with me to the Jersey shore and back each weekend, BUT, he just couldn't jump up into the back of my small SUV. Whew - what a job picking up a 55 lb. standard poodle and hoisting him in! Now, after about 3 months of Smart Canine Senior tablets, he jumps right in and is ready to go at a moment's notice. This was a difference I could easily SEE and FEEL. Thanks again.
