I got mine from the vet - not too pricy since they don't need much. It goes on top of food. Mindy seems to like it just fine. It's UBA Vet brand here in Canada.

The pate or the tablets brian, the pate is the cheapest tesco do, in a clear tube, bacon and liver spreading pate, about 40p and i cut it in half and freeze half of it as it goes off quite quickly and stinks the fridge out.
May take a few days to get used to it, he used to crunch and then spit it out but i think he is so hungry now he will eat anything. This diet is brill Brian, he has lost 2 kilos since i came on here, about a month or so.
The tablets i book marked on my pc as home, i think they were about £15 for 180 or something, and have the correct amounts required for a ckcs in one go and it saves trying to get half a doz different ones in him, mind you if they came with pate he would love them. di

He was just over 12kg and hasnt been weighed for two weeks, ring Arden Grange, they are super explain her problem, they sent me 4 packs of their lamb and rice light, its hypoalergenic and contains only natural ingrediants
they sell online or to certain outlets, and my nearest one was miles away then my vets said they could get it in for me, works out cheaper than me going to get it. It also contains L-Carnitine which converts fat to energy and is in Iams foods and a few others. As for the suppliements my vet said search on the internet and gave me the amounts harley needs, he also said you cant really overdose so if its a bit more then dont worry, so he gets the same as the mobility supplement packs you can get from your vets for a fraction of the price. I havent the brand i brought with me, but you could search and see what you find. Failing that ill have a look when i get home and let you know. di

My vet recommended Glycoflex for Cinders - she was getting quite stiff in the mornings. There are three strengths - she is on 3 which is the highest dose.
It must taste good cause she takes it like a treat and since taking it has no longer had any morning stiffness!!
You can buy it quite reasonably through the internet.

Joe & Jacks (made by celeb/tv vet Joe Inglis) do a snack for joints - avalible online & in Sainsburys

I used the food for a bit & it's pretty good - although I had to go to Northern Ireland to get it as we dont have Sainsburys yet!
