We know that all dogs are not created equal.
What works well for one may not work well for another.
These facts ring true in regards to so many things with Sherman and Leroy.
From exercise needs to nutritional needs.
From favorite toys to best places to take a nap.
Even their joints have different needs.
Sherman’s been on the same joint supplement for several years and he’s done wonderful with it.
Leroy’s been on the same one and he’s done o.k. with it.
Leroy doesn’t have the joint issues that Sherman does, actually he doesn’t have any joint issues except that they are getting old and tired. It’s obvious now where it wasn’t so much a year ago.
He’s sometimes slow to get up, he’s a little stiff.
I’m probably the only one that notices it but that’s my job.
Because of this, I decided to try out a new joint supplement with him.
Now, I’m usually pretty hesitant to write about joint supplements. I actually get asked to review them on a weekly basis and most of the time I politely decline. There’s just so many to choose from and I’m pretty particular on what I want Sherman and Leroy to try.
But…..Sherman has a joint supplement that works and Leroy doesn’t so last week, when we reviewed OptaGest by In Clover, I decided to also try out there joint supplement.
Why not? We love the OptaGest. Let’s see what else they’ve got!

Made in the USA by In Clover
Why I Decided To Try It:
- I’m familiar with the ingredients.
- Leroy already uses an In Clover product and has had good results.
- It comes in a powder!
- The powder comes in a BIG container! 23 oz to be exact! That means a whole container will last me well over a month!
I’m a big stickler about how I give joint supplements and a powder formula has always worked the best for us. IMO, when you’re giving a giant breed dog a joint supplement, a powder is way easier than having to give multiple tablets or chews a day. To each their own on this though.
Connectin has been tested
- I’ve been giving Connectin to Leroy for 4 weeks and have seen noticeable results in his stiffness and ease of getting up.
- Leroy loves it. He won’t eat his food now unless the Connectin is on it.
- He attacked the container the other day and wanted to eat the whole thing.
- That’s all the proof I need.
