The best supplement we've tried! My 12 year old lab/mutt mix tore her ACL five years ago chasing a squirrel and had surgery. She has been on Rimadyl, Tramadol, and Cosquin since then. Then last year, she chased a squirrel again and tore her other ACL. Our vet didn't recommend surgery with her age (and the first surgery was difficult to endure/she cried in pain for days even with strong meds) and said she may recover some mobility with time. In addition, because of the ACL issues she was putting most of her weight on her front paws. In the past few years the front paws have turned inward and it appears that her tendons have torn (the vet told me the long name for the injury and said that in a younger dog, he'd recommend surgery). She walks slowly and appears to be in pain since her front paws have spread out and turn inward. For the past year, she has spent about 95% of her time in our downstairs family room so she doesn't have to walk up a flight of 10 carpeted stairs to the main living area and she only comes up when it rains. I have tried a few additional supplements over the years, but none have helped / have caused diarrhea. I order Rimadyl from 1800petmeds, so I decided to check if there is anything to help with her walking/pain. I read the reviews on Duralactin and decided to try it. At first, she did not want to eat it, so I put it in her food with some water and wet dog food so it will taste better. Well, within 5 days she was coming up the stairs a couple of times a day! She is back to laying in the front window and waiting for her food in the kitchen at each meal. She has now been on it for three weeks and is doing great! It is unbelievable that she is coming up the stairs every day! I am so glad I decided to try this---after trying so many supplements that didn't work. I still give her Rimadyl, Tramadol, Cosequin, & Omega-3 fish oil in addition to Duralactin :) and she is looking out the front window now! 07/08/2014
Helps with skin allergies, too Used this on my Cocker Spaniel who had food allergies in addition to arthritis and other 'old age' conditions. We changed her food and that helped with the constant scratching. But she still scratched. Once we added Duralactin to her regimen the scratching stopped completely and she had better mobility. Great product! 02/23/2014
It Works with Synovi G3 Sophie, a 10 year old 45 lb blue heeler has had trouble with her knees for the past 3 years. I tried numerous brands of medication until I started to give her one tablet with her morning meal. At dinner, she gets a Synovi G3 tablet. This combination Works! She now runs and jumps like a young dog. 02/14/2014
works well Started using this product about a week ago and am already seeing marked improvement in my dog. He is quite old and has been very lame. He is moving much better, having a much easier time getting up off the floor to stand. I am actually thrilled and surprised at the difference I am seeing. 11/11/2013
Amazing results!! I have a 7 year old male Rottweiler. He is average size, right around 100lbs. He started limping a little about a year ago, even though I've had him on Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplements since he was 2 yrs old (recommended by our vet.) He would hesitate a little when sitting down, and then limp for the first few steps after getting up. After a week on Duralactin twice a day, he no longer limps at all, and acts like a puppy! For his weight, the bottle said to give 1.5 tabs twice a day, but I decided to try just 1 tab twice a day, and that has done the trick. Thank you so much for giving my dog his youth back!!! 10/23/2013

Increased appetite

My cat is 17 years old. Since I started him on Duralactin, he has been eating like a horse :-) Is this a side effect of the medication?

Answer: 
Please consult with your veterinarian. The increased appetite is not a documented side effect of the supplement and could be a result of changes in your cat's metabolism that your veterinarian may want to evaluate.

My dog won't chew this. She spits it out but I put it in a piece of cheese she swallows it. My question is, is it still effective if not chewed up because it makes a difference in some medicines.
