My 13year old cat has been taking this medication since June. He has fairly severe arthritis in one hind leg and was very grumpy and became pretty lethargic. It did take around a month before I noticed an improvement but now he walks around much more and can jump again. His temper is also much improved. I give him 12 a capsule a day, sprinkled on his food and he doesn't notice it. It's not a cure; but has definitely improved his quality of life.
