Glucosamine is an all-natural ingredient that is surely going to give your pet plenty of relief. Often derived from natural sources like shellfish, Free Range offers 700 mg per serving in powder form to keep your GSD healthy.

Frequently asked questions

When should I use this product for my GSD?

You can use Free Range Joint Supplement for your GSD in the morning, afternoon, evening or right before bed. There is no specific time required to give your German Shepherd this hip & joint supplement, but the most important thing is giving it to your dog consistently. Find a time that works best for you to give it to your dog every day, and stick to that plan.

How is this different than other joint supplements for a German Shepherd on the market?

It is certainly no secret that there are hundreds of options for hip & joint supplements for your German Shepherd on the market. While some of them are looked up upon as leaders in the industry, we still weren't happy with them - particularly the delivery system & the amount of additives & fillers that they included.

Free Range hip & joint supplement was formulated to flip the script on that phenomenon for your German Shepherd. Our goal has always been to give our dogs exactly what they need, and toss out all the ingredients that don't do them any good. That is the only way you are going to be able keep your GSD healthy & combat things like German Shepherd arthritis, hip dysplasia, & other hip problems & joint issues without simply creating additional problems.

The primary difference-makers that separate Free Range from all the other glucosamine supplements, chondroitin supplements include:

- Powder delivery system that allows you to dial in dosage based on exactly what your dog's weight requires. This allows you to give them the perfect dosage of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM to keep your GSD healthy.

- Removal of additives & fillers. While other companies use these to make you feel like you are getting more "bang for your buck", we're giving your German Shepherd exactly what it needs to help their hips & joint health, and nothing more.

- Free Shipping Over $50 - Every single one of our products ship free on orders over $50 for your GSD. Every time.

How is Free Range different from Cosequin DS & Nutramax Dasuquin for my GSD?

Like we mentioned above, one of our primary goals when we formulated Free Range German Shepherd joint supplements was to remove all unnecessary additives & fillers. While Cosequin DS & Nutramax Dasuquin are available in only soft chew & chewable tablet forms containing these additives & fillers, Free Range is offered in powder form, absent of these additives & fillers.

Another differentiating factor between Cosequin DS with MSM, Nutramax Dasuquin & Free Range is that Free Range was formulated specifically to help the health of the cartilage in your active German Shepherd & active dogs. Cosequin DS & Nutramax Dasuquin was formulated for all forms of pets, including cats.

Who is this product intended for?

Free Range German Shepherd hip & joint supplement is perfect for any active dog that is experiencing joint pain, as well as dogs that may be prone to it in the future. Oftentimes these include dogs that are prone to health issues like arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other things that your pet may need joint pain relief from.

That's why we included key ingredients like Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM to help prevent inflammation & provide joint care for dogs.

Why should I be supplementing with Free Range hip & joint supplement for my German Shepherd?

Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM are some of the most essential building blocks of your dog's cartilage. As the cartilage breaks down, dogs begin to experience joint pain. This is, in essence, is what causes poor hip problems & joint health such as arthritis & hip dysplasia.

By supplementing with Alpha Dog Nutrition's Free Range Joint Supplements for your German Shepherd, you are helping to replace some of those essential building blocks to your dogs cartilage. Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM support joint health & helps provide pain relief by bolstering the cushion provided by the cartilage.

Why should I be supplementing with Free Range hip & joint supplement for my German Shepherd?

The primary reason we wanted to formulate and develop a great hip & joint supplement for dogs that work hard & see a tremendous amount of activity is because they are considerably more prone to poor joint health.

As a dog's joints see activity over the years, they continue to see additional wear & tear. That wear & tear causes deterioration of the cartilage that cushion their joints.

Other things that can cause deterioration of cartilage in the hips, joints, & paws are:

- German Shepherd with Osteoarthritis & Arthritis
- A German Shepherd with hip dysplasia
- Dogs that are aging
- German Shepherd that sees high amounts of activity throughout their lives
- A German Shepherd that is genetically prone to joint issues

You can fight back against cartilage deterioration & joint pain through a few combined approaches:

- Limit high impact exercises in aging dogs (jumping out of a truck, off a bed, etc)
- Keeping your dogs in a temperature controlled environment & out of the cold
- Support and promote the positive joint health by supplementing with Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM found in Free Range joint supplements for dogs

Why should I be supplementing with Free Range hip & joint supplement for my German Shepherd?

While there are certainly some breeds that are more prone than others when it comes to arthritis, it doesn't mean that dog breeds not on this list won't have hip dysplasia & joint issues. Always keep a close eye on your dog's demeanor & activity level, and remember preventative maintenance is a lot easier than "fixing" aching joints in a dog.

Why should I be supplementing with Free Range hip & joint supplement for my German Shepherd?

This is the toughest question to answer for us - at least verbally. That isn't because it is actually hard to tell if Free Range is actually working, but because every dog's situation is slightly different when it comes to joint pain and the prevention of it.

If you know your German Shepherd well, you're almost definitely going to notice a difference in their demeanor, mental health, & enthusiasm when it comes to physical activity. That is because instead of physical activity being painful, your dog will ultimately be significantly more comfortable during exercise.

There have been exhaustive studies done that show the benefits of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM for dogs like your German Shepherd to keep their joints healthy. We leveraged those studies to develop the best joint supplement on the market for your GSD.

Why should I be supplementing with Free Range hip & joint supplement for my German Shepherd?

Key ingredients like Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin, Brewer's Yeast, & Vitamin E take a few weeks to build up to strong enough levels enhance joint health. That is why it is so important to give your dog our Free Range hip & joint supplement consistently every day.

Results are going to vary from dog to dog, but you should typically start seeing improvement from your dog within 3-4 weeks of consistent daily usage.

How old should my dog be before giving them Free Range joint supplement for dogs?

Typically what we look for is that your dog's bone structure is fully developed prior to starting any kind of joint supplement. For most dogs, their hips and joints are fully mature by 7-9 months of age. At that point it is recommended to start them on Free Range hip & joint supplement to help maintain healthy joints for the years to come.

While your dog is almost definitely going to continue growing after that point, it is typically simply them "filling out" with muscle and gaining weight.

Is Free Range Hip & Joint Supplement for Dogs a medication? Are there side effects?

While joint supplements are sometimes compared to NSAIDS by consumers, this is not actually a form of medication. It is entirely over-the-counter so you don't need a prescription from a veterinarian to purchase is.

This is a joint supplement for dogs derived from naturally occurring ingredients. We worked with leading doctors in the animal nutrition field to formulate our products, and strongly believe that Free Range is the best joint supplement for dogs on the market today.

If your dog is experiencing extreme joint pain, we highly recommend you see your veterinarian as soon as possible. They will likely use the next step to help make your dog more comfortable, often prescribing NSAIDS as pain relievers & to help reduce inflammation more aggressively.

There have been very few side effects of Free Range joint supplement for dogs observed, but your dog may experience:

- Allergies (if they are allergic to shellfish)
- Increased thirst

It's worth noting that since we use less ingredients (those additives & fillers aren't present in Free Range), your dog is far less likely to experience an allergic reaction with our product when compared to soft chews or chewable tablets.

Where is Free Range made?

We're incredibly proud to say that Free Range joint supplement for dogs is made right here in the USA. Our goal has always been to provide the highest quality supplements for dogs possible, and you simply can't do that without the stringent quality control processes that we have here in America.

Five Stars

We have a very active young GSP. I found this company and started her on a daily maintenance dose to prevent future hip and joint issues about 6 months ago. Our vet was thrilled when I explained the product to her and said she would have recommended the same thing. Our pup loves the taste. We hope it helps keep her active for the rest of her life!

Game Changer

I have been using free range and the resource supplements for my six-year-old German shorthair pointer Charlie for almost a year now. I have seen significant changes in his ability to last longest days in the hunting field. before I started using your product- Charlie would be sore and tired after about a 15 to 20 mile day. This past hunting season I had him hunting longer and further at 25 to 30 miles a day. His recovery time is much faster and he didn’t seem to be near as sore as before. We live and hunt most of the time in Arizona, where it is much warmer most of the year and can be difficult training in the summer. The resource recovery seems to help. Thank you for developing this product. It has made all the difference.

Old dog help

My 12 year old lab was less stiff after hunting and seemed to bounce back quicker while on the free range supplement. Hopefully I’ll be able to get one more season out of the ol gal!
