New Holistic Arthritis Treatment
Here is one which interests me, and should be of interest to you:
Cetyl myristoleate is a fatty acid.
It was isolated in Swiss albino mice, which for some Darwinian wonder, never develop arthritis.
It also seems to be an effective joint lubricant and anti-inflammatory.
Cetylated fatty acids are also used for diseases in which the body attacks itself (autoimmune diseases) including Sjogren’s syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and multiple sclerosis (MS).
Some people use cetylated fatty acids for psoriasis, fibromyalgia, emphysema, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), silicone breast disease, various types of back pain, leukemia and other cancers, and a disease that involves inflammation of the blood vessels called Behcet’s syndrome.
Cetylated fatty acids are applied to the skin for osteoarthritis.
Cetyl myristoleate for pets
Members of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association have been using Myristin® since 1996 for dogs, cats, and other small animals. In 2008, EHP Products introduced a specific veterinary product for dogs and cats, a tasty chewable tablet. The new Hip and Joint Formula combines Glucosamine Sulfate, MSM, and other joint nutrients along with Myristin® into a convenient scored tablet so well-flavored with Prime Rib of Beef, Bacon and Liver that it can even be fed as a treat.
Doses: The Myristin dose is 2-3 tabs per day, based on body size.
I am personally interested in trying the topical cream..

P.S. If you have a middle aged to older pet, then they will have some degree of joint wear and tear..often the veterinary diagnosis is arthritis.
Yes you can do nothing
Use effective, but potential side effect laden conventional anti-inflammatories
Or some type of joint support supplement.
My supplements have been working well for dogs and cats showing evidence of arthritis, and they will likely work for your dog or cat.
