There seems to be a lot of confusion when it comes to baking with glucosamine on whether its potency or composition degrades when exposed to heat. There are a few things to consider when baking with glucosamine, but you can rest assured that if you add it to your next batch of dog treats, you will be helping your dog maintain healthy joints.Studies have shown that glucosamine begins to degrade at temperatures of 375° F (190° C) and above1. Most dog treat recipes call for oven temperatures of 350°, so you should have no problem finding a recipe where you can safely add glucosamine and keep your dog's joints healthy.Glucosamine is usually formulated along with chondroitin, another component of cartilage. The supplement can be found in most food and drug stores, and is most widely available in tablet form. However, if you plan to add the supplement to your next batch of dog treats, you need to look for it in liquid form. You can find a GNC glucosamine / chondroitin formula for dogs at PetSmart.Dogs and Cats: Typical doses start at approximately 500 mg glucosamine and 400 mg chondroitin per 25 pounds divided every 12 hours. Results should be seen within 4-6 weeks at which point cutting back by 1 capsule every 4-6 weeks could be tried to find the least amount necessary to reduce symptoms. Arthritic conditions would usually need to be treated for life.The recommended daily dosage is approximately 750 mg of glucosamine for every 50 pounds of body weight.2 That equates to 3 tsp of most liquid glucosamine/chondroitin supplements. Assuming that the typical dog treat recipe will make about 20 large treats, and you feed your dog one per day, you'll want to add 30 - 60 tsp (1/2 cup - 1 cup) to the batch.Glucosamine and chondroitin are also often used post-operatively in dogs that have undergone joint surgery, or, in treating spinal disc injuries.
