Do Joint Medicines for Dogs really Work?

I just got back from having my dogs hips x-rayed, and they explained to me my dog has "flat hips" and is a high risk candidate for arthritis. They recommended that I look into some fish oils and hip vitamins to help prevent early development of arthritis. Does anyone know if this will actually help, or is it a big waste of money?

I use them for keeping my hips healthy.  My owner said that the vet x-rayed my hips and mentioned they were "flat" and that I could develope arthritis early.   I am hoping it helps, and my mom feeds me food with fish oil in them.  It taste great and its supposed to help keep things running smoothly.  Anyway, I am going to run as long as I can can!
