What To Do If Your Dog Is Allergic To Glucosamine

Most joint support supplements contain glucosamine, which is a supplement that is often given to middle age dogs and cats to help relieve the pain and soreness within their joints. It is especially helpful for pets with deteriorating joints, dysplasia (hip or elbow) and arthritis.

While many pets can tolerate glucosamine without a problem, some may experience symptoms such as Itchy skin, hot spots, diarrhea, vomiting and other digestive issues.  The most likely culprit is a food allergy to shellfish since glucosamine is derived from shellfish.
