Alfalfa is a great resource of vitamins, minerals, amino
It is used to treat joint disorders, including arthritis, as
well as improving the blood and circulatory system in dogs.
Many years ago I used it along with shark cartilage for a
very arthritic dog of mine. It helps to increase synovial
fluid production in the joints. This was before the
introduction of glucosamine and chondroitin.
I would say you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Alfalfa is safe ans without side effects.
