A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Joint MAX is used for dogs and is a soft, chewy tablet with a meaty flavour. It can be given to your pet during or after its meal time.
The dosage of this medication depends on how severe the condition of your dog is and how the dog responds to the treatment.
Double the daily amount of dosage that you give to your pooch for the first 3 weeks or as advised by your vet. If digestive problems occur then taper the dosage for a couple of days and then gradually go back to the recommended dosage.
If after 3 weeks of excessive dosage, you see a positive result then reduce to the maintenance dose. Every dog’s body is different, and some dogs may take a long time to show positive results; if this is the case, then continue loading the dose.
The ingredients include:
Your dog might experience a few gastrointestinal side effects such as loss of appetite and nausea.
