Cetyl-M for joint?

Have any of you heard of this supplement for dog joints? The vet hospital that did Zeke's OFA X-rays recommended it for his hips. I haven't done much googling yet, but was surprised to hear of a supplement I had never heard of before.

Zeke came out OFA fair which technically means he isn't dysplastic. It came as quite a shock since he still moves with a hitch in his step and occasional outright lameness and the radiologist that did his X-rays said she was 100% sure he would not pass. I am glad he isn't technically dysplastic but now I tend to find OFA misleading. Perhaps I should have gone with Penn-hip instead since they measure laxity which is likely where his issues lie.

Yes, cetyl myristoleate. I've heard of it before from some of the horse products where it is combined in with other ingredients like glucosamine and MSM . I don't remember now if any of my friends tried it or used it with success, I know that I didn't use it.

I'm a big fan of CM, and I think there may be some threads about it on this forum, I'm not sure.

Beef-based CM is more effective than plant-based. I can't use it here because beef makes Jazz tremor... I always used the Jarrow True CMO supplement, and can't attest to any other ones.

Not sure if all of these links still work: http://germanshepherdhome.net/forum/ubb ... #Post24450
