In brief: Variable

Some people report considerable relief with this combination, others report no help at all.
Interestingly, in dogs, relief is much more common. The only way to find out is to try it for 3 months as it may take that long. Consider adding msm to the regimen as that acts as an anti-inflamatory and can also help. As always, check with your primary care physician first.
