The joint supplements do help with knee pain, and hyaluronic acid added I think helps more. I knew a gsd owner that injected glucosamine. It won't change any of the grovve, but it will lubricate the joint and help with the pain.
I would not use the tail to hold up the dog, you can cause nerve damage at the base of the tail.
I was not able to use Marty tail ,he made it very clear I was not to touch his tail when he is trying to pee. I did have some cosequin from my last dog and gave some it away after my dog dies. I really feel awful about having my dog go through all that pain from surgery and he has a terrible time taking meds , they give him the runs. I will see if I have any cosequin left and try giving Marty some.
