Senior Dog Has Joint Problems?

I have a 10 year old chihuahua who is in great health, she is not overweight and is very active. Recently, she has start to have problems with her back hips bothering her. She has had x-rays and the vet did not see anything abnormal and said for her to take it east and she should be fine. Is there any over the counter pet meds that anyone knows of to help with her joint pain? Our vet did say as she gets older she may develop joint problems, arthritis.
I took her back to the vet this week and they took new x-rays, the vet said she was having arthritis in her right hip and gave her some pain meds called Metacam to take for a few days. Can she take another supplement with this or should I see if the Metacam works? Thanks!
