      Hi Ted,

      You might consider using a different probiotic supplement, or a digestive enzyme supplement, such as Animal Essentials Plant Enzymes & Probiotics. You can also try adding in a prebiotic, such as my Prebiotic Plus. Remember: no two animals are alike— if a certain brand or product isn’t working for your companion, it might just be that it is the wrong “mix” for him. Try so a different one. Thanks for your question!

    Hi Lynn,

    You might try going to health food store and picking up some Turmeric/Bromelain capsules (100-150mg). Break one open and mix with wet food once daily. In human studies this combo has been shown to be effective toward reducing joint pain and inflammation. From an herbalists perspective this formula also makes holistic sense, as the turmeric supports healthy liver functions that aid in the removal of toxins that might otherwise be contributing to joint pain and stiffness. I give thi supplement to my large breed senior dog, Boji. It seems to help with his mobility.
