The second link to me to an empty shopping cart, so I vote for link #1.   :D

Seriously, I did like the Super Snout Joint Powder.  Here's the link to the product on the maker's website:  http://digginyourdog.com/joint-power-description.html

What I really like about it is this:

Quote
  How do we process our Green Lipped Mussels?
The right way.
The new processing technology developed by our state of the art manufacturing facility in New Zealand allows the use of only pure fresh mussel meat to be cold extracted from the whole mussel (without the shell). A revolutionary freeze drying technology is then used to stabilize the lipids against rancidity. No heat is ever used during any process of the mussel powder production thereby eliminating any damage to the vitamins and amino acids in the mussels.

Thanks.  The 2nd one looks fine, too.  I guess I'm thinking in terms of ease of use, the one for pets would be easier, since you can change the amount you're giving (scoop size) vs. having to open a capsule.  Plus that one had more reviews.

You have to go with the one that you feel most comfortable.  Was there one that "spoke to you" more than the other?

I ordered the snout one this morning. And for the exact reason you stated, ease of dosing. Thanks!

I'm really in a dilemma here.  The GLM hasn't come yet and of course I will start it in tiny tiny doses.  But I am so fearful of upsetting the balance as it stands now.  She NEEDS something more to help with her arthritis, and I've read a lot of positive testimonials about GLM. It's actually supposed to be good for digestive issues and internal inflammatory issues also.

And what if the taste is too strong and she hates it.  1000 mg sounds like such a lot of powder.  I won't know how much it is until I see the scoop size of course. It can take up to 3-4 months for full results, and it is recommended to start with double the maintenance dose to hurry the effects, but of course I can't do that with Mazy cat.

GoodVibes

Baby steps.  Wait for the GLM to get there, first, and look at the scoop size, then go from there.  You have very good instincts when it comes to what's best for Mazy Cat (and the other furkids, too).  You are doing everything you can, and she's doing (knock wood) well.

It's going to be okay.  GoodVibes

Is the "balance" going good right now?  If so, just put it aside when it gets here.  See if things continue to go well.

Yes, but her arthritis is really bad.  I know she's in pain. That's what the GLM is for, to help get rid of the arthritis pain.

Having that friend send Mazy some Reiki energy might help.  At least until the GLM arrives.  fingerscrossed :)

Good idea, thank you Pookie. Mazy cat had learned, over the summer to draw on the Reiki when she needed.  I'll start reminding her of that, maybe she will, until my friend feels better.

Mazy cat was very playful last night.  But she doesn't run any more.  Or even stay upright. She lies on the floor and beats up the cat nip toys, instead of hunching over them and beating them up. But at least she IS playing.  She hasn't lost interest or anything like that.

Still I hate for her to feel any discomfort at all.

Mazy cat is playing more, and running more.  She still will instigate a Game with Queen Eva, but flinches and refuses to leave her bed when Queen Eva stalks her. Queen Eva is still being rough sometimes.

Don't know if the re-addition of the ACV is helping already. She definitely favors that right back leg though. Not limping, but by the way she sits.

Are you still talking to Queen Eva about taking it easy on Mazy when they play?

I'm glad Mazy's feeling a bit better.   thumbsup1

Every day. All the time.  During our quiet time, and when she is being rough and I intervene and tell her to stop and remind her why.  And at the other times when I see her be gentle and I thank her and tell her how good she is.

I think the re-enstatement of the ACV is what's helping. But it's not enough.
