I give him Cosequin for Cats (Glucosamine chondroitin ), He's been on it for a long time, doesn't seem to help at all. Dr also said it could be a shortage of potassium, so he gets that too. This little guy had a rough start in life. A feral cat with a damaged tail and knobs for ears. He goes nuts if you touch his ears, though they are clean, no mites. Now only has one good eye and walks like the hunchback of Notre Dame. He can still make the 3 stairs I have in my home and I've provided stools and such so he can get to certain heights. He's not in pain, he's just weird.

BTW, Cosequin can be found less expensively on ebay, amazon, some pet sites, cheaper than at the vet.

Kitty, my elderly, obese and arthritic cat Sandy has improved much since
I have been giving her Glucosamine chondroitin (sp?).  The vet prescribed
it a couple of years ago, and at first it didn't seem to help much, but
a month or so she really moves much more easily.  It's rather expensive,
but worth it for her to be so much more mobile.  She can now jump up
onto the couch or bed with only a couple of false starts.  Before, she had
to be helped.

Braveheart walks much like the Minister of Silly Walks.  I  believe it's
more painful to watch him walk than it is for him to walk.  He has litter
box issues so now he is banned from half the house; he was ruining my new
laminate.  We're experimenting with new boxes.
