After noticing Shadow having a hard time getting up from lying down, I knew immediately he was having hip and joint pain as is expected in 9 year-old 100 lb German Shepherds. I started him on Cosequin and that seemed to help a little but not enough. I did not want to put him on prescription medicine due to the potential side effects. I found Canna-Pet online and after reading the stories decided I would try it. It has made a definite difference! He is much more playful and has minimal issues trying to get up now. We have had him on it for about 6 months now, giving him 2 Advanced Max large capsules every morning and evening. I recommend this to everyone I know that has dogs with joint/bone issues!
