It has often been said that, over time, dogs begin to take on the characteristics of their owners. With older dogs this can be both amusing and a bit depressing at the same time.
About four years ago, when my Labrador was first diagnosed with degenerative arthritis, my vet suggested I start giving her a daily dose of glucosamine chondroitin for her joints. At the time I thought this was pretty funny since I had been already been taking this supplement to help ease my aches from running. We began taking our daily pill together.
After her last vet visit, Dr Shulkin suggested I start her on a daily regimen of Metamucil. So far we aren’t sharing this supplement but I don’t like the way this is trending.
