My dog eats Prescription Diet j/d dog food, It has all the necessary fish oils in it for mobility. It is expensive and you can only get it from a Vet but it lasts a while. Sometimes I mix another high quality dog food in it for flavor. My dog tore her ACL about 2 years ago and is doing fine.

If your dog has hip pain, I would suggest trying SAMe as an arthritis supplement. We have used it on our golden retriever and it stopped his chronic degenerative limping within a few days, and he started actually running again! We just buy the Nature Made SAMe at Costco, break the pills in half and feed them to him each day.
