|First off all your Saint Bernards are so beautiful. I have had Greyhounds for years and know the problems that large breeds have with arthritis used Large Breed formulas for my dogs for years. Here is some added information you might find interesting.
Glucosomine and Chondrotin are natural in the proteins in dry dog food such as chicken, lamb, salmon, venison etc. and a lot of the dog food companies add glucosomine and condrotin supplements.
Some companies with Large Breed formulas add calcium and phosphorus which together helps with the formation and maintenance of bones and teeth as well as most metabolic actions in the body, including kidney function, cell growth and the contraction of the heart muscle. Assists the body in vitamin use (especially some B group vitamins) and is also involved in converting food to energy.
Have you ever tried Greenies Joint Care with Green Lipped Muscles. Here is the link to both the Greenies site and the story behind Green Lipped Muscles. They are a fairly new product and I have used them for my oldest Grey that has hip arthritis issues and it really helped her stop limping and start running more.
