Did you know that your Tripawd’s joint pain can be relieved with SAM-e? This pain-relief human supplement can be used for dogs as well as humans and comes highly recommended by Tripawd’s long-time friend and supporter Dr. Pam Wiltzius, as well as Dr. Jessica Waldman from California Animal Rehabilitation. Dr. Waldman shared great advice regarding SAM-e in a Tripawds chat session…
‹Dr.Waldman› a great supplement for all joint pain that is over-the-counter is Nature Made SAM-e – approximately, 200mg per 20lb dog, 30 minutes before eating in the morning… it’s 3rd party tested so it’s not lying to you, if given with snacks it won’t work, GREAT for pain…
… Human product, often in 400 mg, this is by far safest, best pain product, plus, if your significant other is cranky, give it to them too, it’s a mood elevator!
As for dosage, Dr. Wiltzius said in this forum discussion:
“The dose for SAM-E is as follows:
- cats and small dogs (under 12 pounds) 100 mg daily
- medium dogs (12-35 pounds) 200 mg daily
- large dogs (35-65 pounds) 400 mg daily
- XL dogs (65-120 pounds) 800 mg daily
- giants (120 plus pounds) 1200 mg daily
SAM-E is best given on an empty stomach.”
