Beware Change - 5 star rating old formula only
Update to prior review. I have finally spoken to Genesis. They are aware of the problem with the new formulation and will be bringing back the old formula very soon. They find dogs newly starting on Pain Plus do not seem to mind the new formulation, but dogs who have been on it seem to be rejecting the new. Customers will be offered both formulas so if you have been using Pain Plus successfully for awhile, I suggest you order the old Chicken formula, to be available again soon.
works for pain but
does a good job with moderate arthritis pain without the side effects of NSAIDs but they changed the taste and now my dogs don't like the flavor.
sure beats RX
Old dog, mild joint stiffness. This product twice daily has given him a spring in his step and movement with more ease. Sure beats having him on prescription medicine. An excellent choice for our old guy.
Pain Plus good for light to moderate arthritis
This product was recommended by a holistic vet we see for our elderly lab. It has really helped her maintain a decent standard of life. I recently went without for a week due to inadvertence in ordering, and wow, the difference when she got back on the meds was striking.

I have a 5 lb. chihuahua mix foster puppy (6 months old) that came from the shelter with a broken leg that has healed badly. I take her to rehabilitation twice a week and the tech suggested this product. The instructions say up to 50 lbs. one tablet twice daily so I started her with half--didn't do anything. Then I gave her one--again nothing--but I continued and the product seems to be cumulative because after a week I noticed it starting to work. After 2 weeks it is still not working as I had hoped, but at least it is giving her some relief. A positive is it is easily broken up and she likes it but at this time I probably would not recommend it.
A great product to try!

I bought these summer of 2010 - I was a little skeptical at first - but have a 12 year old Lab having trouble getting up and down and doing a lot of moaning while doing it. Figured these were worth a try; and glad I did. This has helped my Lab quite a bit. As the other reviewer points out it is not a miracle drug, but the difference is marked if I miss a day or two in dosing. Dog has a sensitive stomach and I am happy to report there have been no issues with this herbal formula. Would highly recommend it and just suggest you give it a little while to begin to work; it is much easier on the dogs system than drugs from the vet I have tried. I am back tonight buying more.
A good buy.
My ten year old lab isn't limping as much from pain in her front shoulder. She walks our usual one mile a day in much less pain. I'd say she's 80 percent better than without this supplement. Once the joint warms up from walking I can hardly detect a limp anymore. I'm satisified with the results.
Fantastic Pain supplement
I have two large dogs with bad hips, one is 11 and one 5 years of age. My house has two leavles both dogs had a problem going up the stairs, i`ve been giving them PAIN PLUS for 2 months now, the young dog can run up stairs now, the old boy can walk up a lot better. They both get 2 tablets a day and they look for them.
Not a Cure but Helps With Old Age Pains
This product is very slow to work. Don't give up.
After a month my 10 year old bloodhound with spinal arthritis showed a slight but definite improvement.
Pain Plus was recommended by my Wholistic Vet. It works as well or better than the rimadyl that my dog was on.
Nice alternative to Rx

I give this to my dog who has joint soreness. It helps and I don't have to give him harsher medications to give him relief.
We used Canine Pain Plus for several years with wonderful success; however, my last purchase for some reason my dog would NOT eat the chews. Looking at the old and new bottles, I see the formulation has changed. Instead of using chicken livers as the carrier, they have switched to pork and beef by-products (lungs etc.) and my dog will not take them. I will have to throw them out. It was such a great product and now has no value to me. Genesis refused to return my phone call.
A great, natural alternative to steroids
from Portland, OR03/05/2012
We were worried about the long-term side effects of the prescription steroid medication that our dog was on for joint pain. Our vet recommended we give Pain Plus a try. Seems to be working well, we've been using it for about 3 years now. The price is lower than our local chain pet stores. We had a problem one time with the tablets arriving broken in the container. Entirely Pets replaced the product right away at no charge. We use the "Auto-Reship" feature so we don't have to remember to order and we never run out.
Big time help
I have a 13 year old Corgi and he has been on Pain Pluse for about two years. I have taken him off a couple of times and each time his back problems flare up, so it works. It's not a miracle drug but it really helps.
