Duralactin is great
My lab had knee surgery years ago and I've used several products over the years. Within 3 weeks of using duralactin, I swear I see an improvement. Her movements seem more fluid and she doesn"t hestitate at the stairs. I hope she continues to improve. Thanks for a great product. She loves the taste too!
Works for my 12 year old Schipperke
My vet had recommended Duralactin for my 12 yr old Schipperke, due to her seemingly sore joints. She had trouble climbing stairs and walked with a limp upon waking up each day. The cost at the animal hospital pharmacy was $10 more than at this website, so I ordered it here. It seemed to work right away and my schip is back to playing, climbing stairs, jumping up on the sofa and running around the house. I am so happy for the improvement and believe that these tablets make a huge difference for my dog.
Appears to be excellent product

Two of our dogs are seniors (13 and 11 years). Both have severe hip dysplasia. Our vet suggested that we try duralactin to help reduce joint inflammation. Although both dogs have only been taking the tablets for about a week, both appear to be more comfortable and have better range of movement. I've been told it will take about 14 days before any real improvement would be visible, but I'm encouraged by what I've seen so far. I'm placing another order to continue to medication. It's great that it's non-prescription and inexpensive in comparison to something like rimadyl.

I first had on-line chat with very helpful person and, as a result, ordered the product. Very satisfied with product and service!
Great addition for chronic pain management!

We utilize this product for our Mastiffs with known orthopaedic problems such as hip dysplasia or chronic ACL ruptures before and after surgery, anytime chronic inflammation is an issue. Although it's difficult to isolate the effects of solely this product, we use it in combination with other drugs and supplements and believe it plays an important role in our pain management program. Highly recommend its inclusion as an anti-inflammatory especially in combination with other supplements and prescribed drugs.
Best for my "Doc"

My 14 year old blue heeler mix, Doc, was recommended to take Duralactin by our vet. He is up and taking walks again and even wants to chase his ball!

My 13 year old dog has arthritis and a stomach condition that prevents taking traditional veterinary medications for arthritis. My vet started her on this and she is doing very well on it. She is walking better than she has in months. Am very pleased by this product.
Been giving this to my Corgi for appx 5 years for joint pain. He doesn't yelp anymore when he jumps up on the couch. And he also loves the taste. He thinks it's a treat.

I have a Toy Poodle and, at my vet's advice, I began giving my pet Duralactin every day when he was 8 years old (he weighs 9 pounds). He is now 16-1/2 years old and runs around the yard and in and out of every room in our house. He rides in the car with us and sleeps with us at night. My vet says "he's awesome" because of how active and healthy he is at such a late age. He'll be 17 years old in October.
Keeps our 15-year-old sheltie walking 3 miles/day

My vet recommended Duralactin last year as an alternative to Rimadyl, has kept our 15-year-old sheltie right up with our 4-year-old shelties! Hope I'm still walking 3 miles a day when I'm as old as he is! (Would that be 105 or so?)
Works better than most
My little chihuahua has a back injury. It occasionally flares up and during acute attacks he is on steroids. I have tried most things out there. Duralactin is not well publicized, but for us it works better than any of the others (Glucosamine, chondroitin, Cetyl M, HA, aspirin) with no side effects such as upse tummy. Plus he munches the vanilla flavored tablet right down with no trickery needed. Within a week of starting it, I noticed he had much greater control over his legs on the slick floors (unfortunately our floors are polished concrete) and he'll begin to bounce around and play rough. He was recently ill for a few days, and I quit giving him the Duralactin. He became wobbly on the floors, occasionally seemed to lose his legs and fall, and generally seemed stiffer and unhappy. Now he's back on again, for good. I give this as an antiinflammatory in conjunction with Hyaflex for a little joint insurance.
Our 14 yr old Corgi is tolerating the lactate based medication, appears to have less stiffness, runs well, eats the tablets nicely. I was anxious to try a less toxic medication ,not the NSAID's suggested by some Vets and am happy a different Vet recommended your product.. I like the early action of Duralactin responding to inflammation. Will be monitoring her response after a month.
seems to help
My chiropractic vet recommended this for my 15 yr old Shiba Inu with mobility problems. She is on some steroids periodically for allergies and I needed an anti inflammatory that she could take with 'roids. She is more active and her appetite has improved so I am convinced that she is more comfortable.

Product was recommended by a friend as an alternative to Deramax. Can't really rate the effectiveness since it is too early to determine. G ood thing is that it is palatable.
