|Human supplements are typically better quality and cheaper. If the one you've found so far is expensive, keep looking. You can get different doses as well, although therapeutic doses ARE high. That's the whole purpose of the supplement.
Whether or not you can split pills will depend on the individual supplement. If it's a capsule with powder, it shouldn't be an issue... Some solid pills can't be split (and I generally wouldn't recommend them for dogs anyway) and obviously splitting gel tabs would be ridiculous to attempt. You could also look for liquids or powder supplements and just give less than the recommended dose, if you don't want him to have that much.
Staying away from supplements altogether, there are food sources naturally high in glucosmaine. Raw beef trachea comes to mind. Generally any tendons/connective tissue (chicken feet, just for example... I know he can't have them, but along that idea).
