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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
