Customer Reviews
The Missing Link Plus Canine Formula with Joint Support is rated 4.5652 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results Missing Link was recommended to me about 10 years ago and have used it on several dogs with great results. Better mobility and great benefit to the joints. I highly recommend it. I have always wondered if humans could also use the product since all the ingredients seem like it would benefit us also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Link is a life saver My Tubbie (Red Heeler) is 16 years old. For several week's we noticed She could not lift and walk by herself without our help, I became fearful, until one day a co-worker shared with me a 1/2 bag of "missing Link"! I begin to give missing Link daily to my Tubbie with her dry dog food, and WOW! a miracle begin to occur over and over, Tubbie begin lifting up and walking all by herself again with just a tiny small discomfort, but she even begin showing signs of happiness again! We know she is old, but missing link is allowing Tubbie to remain with us for a while longer and without too much discomfort. Thanks to "missing link" !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More energy Missy is on her 3 bag of the Missing Link and she has so much more energy and she can take the stairs a lot quicker now. This is the best product around. Thank You!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs love it I have used this product for about 6 months now on all 3 of my dogs, 2 which are German Shepherds and one is a mix.. My oldest shepherd is 10 years old and we have tried other joint supplements to help with his hips and nothing really worked as well as this product has. The missing link also seems to help the other 2 dogs and the shedding has slowed down considerably. Glad I came across this product and would recommend it for any breed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my dog likes it! I have been giving my12 year old dog people pills for joint pain. Even broken in half, they have to be stuffed in a hot dog before she will touch them. Often, she eats the hot dog and spits out the pill. With the Missing Link, she dives right into her food and doesn't stare at it, like thank you for not making me eat hot dogs again!!! It's only been a few days, but it seems to as effective. She sure eats her food up, so it must taste pretty good, and no wasted meds now!!! I would recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've used this product for my cattle dog Lollie for about 2 years after she had some problems periodically with her front leg. Since I've been using it, she hasn't had any problems with limping at all. It mixes well with her food, so no issues with taking it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thought about returning If you want a product which settles to the bottom of the bowl so the dog does not get most if it, buy this. It is a powder which MOST go in the refrigerator in 2 zip lock bags AS RECOMMENDED ON BAG. I don't like to mix the food I give with wet food as it is not good for the teeth so I have to make a soup each time I feed my dog. I look forward in being done with this so I can use something else. I hate this product and would not tell anyone to buy it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I have 3 aging basset hounds, and the Missing Link has given them all easier movement. They walk longer and even play more. They all take it with their meals and have never refused to eat it. It's easy to administer and the bag lasts quite a long time, even with 3 dogs.

Q&A

How much do I give a 10lb Pomeranian. And what amount to I start and how do I titrate to the recommended dose. First weight on chart is 20lbs, and that is long stretch from 10, so advice needed. Thank you

Asked by: Redalex
The recommended dose for dogs up to 20 lbs is to give 1 teaspoon. Because of the high fiber content, start with small amounts (about a half of teaspoon) and gradually increase to the recommended level over the course of a week or two.

How long does 1 lb. package last?

I have a 50ish lb. dog. One tab on this page (product info?) says 3 tsp per day, another (how to use?) says 2 tsp for 50 lb dog. Bottom line - how long should this 1 lb. package last for a 50 lb. dog and which is correct, 2 tsp or 3 tsp? (There is no standard conversion for tsp into lb. when dealing with a powdered or granular substance unless, of course, the density of the product is known.)
Asked by: Dee
I use a plastic spoon and slightly heap it. I give my dogs one of these with their breakfast and one with dinner and they weigh around 75lbs.
