Our Advanced Hip & Joint supplement provides nutrients to maintain your dog’s joint health and works more gradually than prescribed drugs. Improvement on our Advanced Hip & Joint ranges from gradual to dramatic. If this is your dog’s first administration of a joint care supplement and you observe they are not comfortable walking and performing everyday activities, it is ok to double administration based on your dog’s weight for the first 4-6 weeks and then go back to the dosage listed on the bottle. Sometimes, it can take up to 10 weeks to see the full effect. Every dog is different - some dogs may show a noticeable response in a shorter period of time.
