I believe the best way prevent and help joint issues is to keep your dog from getting overweight. My dad had a lab, and she was really fat, and as she got older her joints started to become an issue. The vet told him to put her on a strict diet to help her loose weight. She lost like 15 lbs and the difference it had on her ability to move around the house was amazing. You could see her walking without any pain, and she was even climbing stairs again. while she still suffered a little, by loosing all that weight really changed her life.
