WOW! It's great! We rescued an underweight Great Pyr that had a coat that felt like straw. His coat was severely matted too. He was scared of everything! We have only had him for 2 months. He will not eat dog food of any kind. I make his food from scratch. I felt he wasn't getting everything he needed to gain weight. So... it has been less than a month since I started Missing Link. WOW! He hardly sheds now, he has only needed 1 bath. His coat feels like "down" and he is filling out great! He is happy and wants to play all the time! He will be on this forever! Thank you Missing Link!!! 06/23/2011
A Must Buy We have been using this product since we got our first Vizsla puppy 15 years ago...and have continued to use it with our additional two vizslas. Great product. First off, you see the immediate difference in the coat. Healthy, vibrant color, and shine. Then you see the difference in movement in the older dogs. Our 7 and 10 year old's still run like champions on the beach. Our 15 year old runs up and down stairs and in the yard. An amazing product. 05/23/2014
good product We were using the 800petmeds joint supplement chewables but had to try an alternative when those were out of stock. I tried this product for three reasons: good reviews, focus on natural supplements, reasonable price. Our Bernese Mountain dog is 8 yrs old with mild arthritis. This seems to help consistently with his joints and he likes the flavor. My big concern is that a portion of the product seems to be wasted. Since it is granular, it falls to the bottom of the bowl. It sticks to the bowl and quite a bit adds up over a few days time. I bought enough for about three months and have been using it for about 6 weeks. The jury is still out but right now I am leaning toward continuing to use this rather than switch back to the other joint supplement. 01/18/2014
miracle powder!! The missing link has turned back the clock years for my old, arthritic lab! My 10 year old lab was old beyond her years. She has arthritis in her hips and back. In the last year we have seen a significant decline in her. The arthritis had made it so she could not get up on her own.I had to lift her. She fell many times trying to walk upstairs and I don't even want to think about the falls down them. I read a ton of reviews trying to find something to help w her pain. I was skeptical of natures miracle but now I beleive! I've been giving it to her for just over a month. At about week three is when I saw a difference. No longer did she need me to help her get up and her constant limp was gone! It truly is a miracle. She is happy and playful again. This stuff is amazing!! Im so thankful I found it. My heart no longer breaks every day at the sight of her pain. Now its joyful nowing she's happy and healthy. 01/15/2014
Great product we have used the missing link plus for many years starting with our yellow lab mix, and for each dog since and will continue using it. We noticed that our dogs coats improved and it definitely helped their joints. 10/15/2013

Answer: 
The joint one will fix his coat issues, but the coat one will not save his joints. Go with the joint version.

Answer: 
If you decide to go with the joint formula then one can also add omega 3 to the daily supplements which can be found @ http://www.1800petmeds.com/Super+Pure+Omega+3+-prod10910-10910.html. If going with the skin and coat version one can add a joint supplement like http://www.1800petmeds.com/Super+Joint+Enhancer-prod10496.html.
