Group A dogs were administered with Glucosamine Hydrochloride – 500 mg, Chondroitin sulphate – 400 mg and Vitamin C – 12.5 mg orally twice daily for 90 days. While, Group B dogs were administered with Glucosamine Hydrochloride - 400 mg, Chondroitin Sulphate – 20 mg, Methyl sulphonyl methane (MSM) – 100 mg and Vitamin C – 50 mg orally twice daily for 90 days.
