We decided to add this to our dogs supplement list because after having a total hip replacement done she was still experiencing some joint popping and was somewhat slow to get up.

Arthritis still persists by Chris from Metrowest, MA08/18/2012
My 15 year old dog has been on Jointagen for about 6 years and has just now developed arthritis. I don't know if Jointagen has helped any but it is possible that it has delayed the onset of the disease.
