Regenex for Dogs Dosage Guide

For dogs with joint pain, arthritis or other joint conditions

A dog with joint pain or a dog with arthritis will have higher requirements for joint support nutrients. We choose Regenex for Dogs for its high values of liquid glucosamine, chondroitin & MSM. These three ingredients used together have shown to result in maximum relief and repair for dog arthritis and dog joint pain. Liquid supplements offer greater benefit over treats, chews, or tablets. If your dog is younger or not experiencing joint pain, we recommend lower doses of these ingredients.
