Glucosamine Chondroitin Dosage for Dogs

Last updated: September 1, 2010

Chondroitin Glucosamine dosage for dogs can be as simple as a formula based on your dog's weight. We have included dosage for RJX, but also, we have included recommended dosage for isolated dosing of glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, and MSM. Be sure to check your product for the guaranteed analysis of glucosamine, chondroitin, and msm per dose before giving the supplement to your dog. If your product has other ingredients, follow the instructions on the label.

If you're using our recommended Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplement for Dogs, RJX™, follow the table below: (Note: this dosage is only for dogs with arthritis and joint pain)

RJX Dosage Guide

For dogs with joint pain, arthritis or other joint conditions

A dog with joint pain or a dog with arthritis will have higher requirements for joint support nutrients. We choose RJX for its high values of glucosamine, chondroitin & MSM. If your dog is younger or not experiencing joint pain, we recommend a joint maintenance formula instead of RJX, try Spectrin™.

Dog's Weight Amount of RJX™
Under 10 lbs 1 teaspoon (1/6 oz)
10 lbs - 24 lbs 2 teaspoons (1/3 oz)
25 lbs - 49 lbs 1 Tablespoon (1/2 oz)
50 lbs - 100 lbs 4 teaspoons (2/3 oz)
Over 100 lbs 2 Tablespoons (1 oz)
