How Best To Care For My Almost 14 Year Old Aussie With Fairly Severe Joint Issues

How best to care for my almost 14 year old Aussie (August 12th, 2013), blue merle, with fairly severe joint issues. No other health issues. What else can I do to help My Aussie in his old age. He will be 14 years old in mid August of 2013 and his only health issue is his very stiff and nearly noncompliant joints. I give him 1200 to 1500 mg of glucosomine and chondroitin daily in his food which does noticeably help, but he still struggles considerably. Is there any thing else I can do for him?
