    Mary Kay,
    Alfalfa is a great resource of vitamins, minerals, amino
    acids, etc.
    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.
