canine hip dysplasia

She still moves around like a puppy, but if I would like to nip this thing in the bud and give her some good joint support in case she is developing dysplasia. I am thinking… similar herbs to those I would use with arthritis… anti inflammatoris, anti oxidents, fish oils, glucosamine chondroitin… what else?
