There are a lot of supplements out there, most contain Glucosamine and/or Chondroitin, but a friend of mine happened to be looking at a product called Duralactin.

I hadn't hear a lot about it, so I asked on my Gimpydogs Facebook group to see if anyone had tried it, and of course a few had!
As with all supplements, some may work for your pup, and some may not, so the view expressed here are from people that have used it, and have had success. Your experience may vary.

"When our Pepper was declining with spinal stenosis, her vet at the time suggested Duralactin. I just thought they were trying to selling me something else. But in speaking with their receptionist who had a very old poodle that could barely walk and now was walking thanks to Duralactin, I said I would think about it.
I went home and ordered it on line. It took several weeks to work, but she started to show improvement and after several months she was moving a lot better. We had her on it for years. She was 16 when we had to euthanize her.
It is a milk product, so dogs who can't handle milk products won't be able to use it. It smells great, vanilla flavored. Pepper loved it."

"I used this for Dave when he was very senior. It seemed to help. I was able to give it to him because unlike so many other products, it was safe to "mix" with his other drugs. Also, as it was at a stage where it was hard to get him to eat, he liked them. Frankly, the chewable tablets smell like really good vanilla ice cream."
We're going to give it a 4-paws up based on user experience. It seems to help, it's tasty, and it doesn't appear to cause any harm.
Duralactin is available from Chewy.com
