Just What the Doctor Ordered

 Dr. Lyon's Hip + Joint SupportChewy.com disclaimer
   We were recently selected by Chewy.com to review
Dr. Lyon’s Hip + Joint Support. This advanced strength supplement is perfect for any size dog. Bentley and Pierre are completely different in size and activity levels but I’m concerned about both of their hips and joints. Next month both Bayou Boys will be considered seniors although you couldn’t tell by watching them! It is very important that I keep them healthy and mobile to avoid stiff joints.
   Dr. Lyon’s Hip + Joint Support has four active ingredients, including glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, and manganese. This incredible combination supports mobility along with the production of healthy cartilage and tissue. That means my boys can look forward to many more years of running, jumping, and playing.

   Bentley never turns down something to eat so he gobbled these down as a treat. Pierre has trust issues with anything new so I began breaking the scored tablets and adding them to his food. After a couple of days, he joined Bentley in eating them for a treat. According to the instructions, the initial period is 4-6 weeks where the dosage is double that of the maintenance level.

   We are only one week into the initial period due to our move, so I haven’t noticed a difference. I do know how helpful glucosamine is to me and my arthritic knees, so I expect outstanding results for the boys. I’ll keep you updated as we finish our jar of 250 chewable tablets. If you’d like to order some for your best friend, visit Chewy.com. They will be at your door in a couple of days!  Thanks to Chewy for sharing this supplement with us.

    2. I do eat them for treats and mom puts them on top of my meals sometimes too. Mom cooked the green beans. They are not raw but I did sample one that was raw and it was yummy too!

  4. Madison and I are pretty picky about eating things like that, Bailie eats everything. We are happy with our current supplement, but will keep this in mind.

  8. Glucosamine is on our list of supplements, it did wonders for Angel Dory's hips, and Jakey still jumps higher than high. We can't wait to see how these work for you!

  9. Sandy Cat took some glucosamine when he got older. They also put out some stepstools so he could get to places like the window and bed that he used to be able to jump to.

  12. You have me thinking. I've been pretty happy with the joint supplements we've been using. However, Luke's knee has been popping out more lately. I blame all the snow....but I wonder if it might be time for a change in joint supplements too. I'm going to compare ingredients to see if this might have something our current one does not.
    I can't believe those crazy bayou boys are going to be seniors!

    1. Neither of the boys have trouble and I hope to keep it that way with these supplements. I can't believe they are seniors either! Where does the time go?
