Glucosomine can take months to work.   It has to rebuild.   Take a look at
Dr. Jean Hofve's page: for
some interesting information, especially Creak-away.   I was never happy

Go Get a Life---Go Get a Shelter Animal!

If you can't adopt, then foster "bottle baby" shelter animal, to save their
life.  Contact your local pound for information.

If you can't bottle feed, foster an older animal, to save their life, and
to free up cage space.

Ask your local animal pound to start saving over 90% of their intake by
implementing the No Kill Equation:<>

Here's the current growing list of true No Kill communities: (see the right sidebar)
