While any good glucosamine supplement or treat has quality ingredients that provide support for your dog’s joints, I’m generally more apt to give Teton his glucosamine in treat form since it’s more exciting for him. (It’s the perfect morning treat!)
Zuke’s Hip Action has been our go-to treat for a while but I bounce between brands from time to time to see what T likes best.
I was recently contacted by Pet Naturals of Vermont, who asked if Teton would like to try their Hip + Joint treats.

Giving your dog Hip + Joint on a daily basis provides joint support that may increase his or her quality of life by preventing joint, bone, and tissue problems.
Each bag (starting at $7.69 on Chewy.com) contains 45 bone-shaped chews. (Or, if you have an extra large dog there’s a bag that has 60!) If your dog is 25 lbs or less, he/she should have 1 chew per day. If he/she is between 25 and 75 lbs (which is where Teton lands), it’s 2-3 chews per day. And if your dog is over 75 lbs, he/she get 4-6 chews per day.
If your dog should get more than one chew per day, Pet Naturals recommends dividing them up between morning and evening.
Your dog is sure to gobble these little gems up since they’re made with chicken liver and fish oil.
Teton is a pretty active dog. Along with his daily walk and weekly dog park romps, we often take him hiking or running with us. Last weekend we went on a 10.5 mile hike that had some pretty legit elevation gain. He hiked like it was nobody’s business and, while he was wiped out afterward, didn’t exhibit any signs of soreness.
We want Teton to hike, run, play, and snowshoe with us for as long as possible so Pet Naturals Hip + Joint treats are staying in our daily treat regimen.
