Calcium oxalate crystals can be a challenge to manage sometimes. Also the formulations on glucosamines can vary. I would recommend that a urine sample be submitted while on the glucosamine. 4-6 hours post medicating might be helpful.

Another option for joint heath would be fish oil supplementation. Omega 3 fatty acids, specifically EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) will help reduce joint inflammation.

Also adding in an NSAID can also help. Previcox, Metacam, etc...

Hope this helps.
