I have a foster dog who is only 1 year old but already has arthritis due to angular limb deformity.

Whatever any of us tells you about supplements or foods or whatever to try, please always always run it past your vet before you try anything.

When my ^Valentine^ first started having joint problems (which turned out to be a torn ACL) my vet recommended Cosequin.

I'm glad you're already doing glucosamine because that is a great supplement for joints. Several foods on the market actually have glucosamine in them, too, so I'd probably try to work with one of those (choose a premium food) to try and help even more. I think Innova makes a couple of different varieties with glucosamine added.
