I have two miniature dachshunds who love to run, play and jump of of things that they're not supposed to all of the time. And because of their breed they are prone to joint and back issues more frequently than others. So I wanted to invest in something that they would like and something that was affordable and that's when I came across these vitamin mini-bones. My pups seems to really enjoy them and I've seen an improvement when it comes to how their actual joints sound after play time. Even though I split it between the two of them, the container has really last me, they have a good shelf life and it was affordable! Which is always an extra bonus in my opinion. I just give them three each in the morning before play time 😊.
