My Kaycee Had Luxating Patellas---both Knees--and There Was None In Her Family History. She Had An Enlarged Heart--none In Her Family. There Were Other Things As Well. My Vet Said She Was A Fluke--but How I Love That Fluke And Would Have Taken Her Even Knowing What Was A Head.
I Am So Sorry Tht Your You Poor Tnago Has To Go Thru This And I Dosay Start On Jointsups Right Away. Believe It Or Not, Knox Nutra Joint Plus Glucosamine Is Great. My Buck Developed Arthritis At About Age 11 And He Was Slow Geting Up And Down, Coulnd't Sretch His Back Legs Ut Behind Him. Etc. Now Once Up, He Would Trot Instead Of Walk, It Was Just The Getting Up And Down. On An All Breed Forum One Talked Abut How It Had Helped Her And She Used It On Her Old Dog And It Helped Him. Several Used It And Said It Worked. She Told Me It Would Take Abut 3 Months Before I Would See The Difference.
To Be Ruthful I Was Not Not Really Expecint To See A Change, But In 2 1/2 Months Thee Was A Change--hewas Getting Up And Down Faster And Then Oe Day He Stretched His Back Lets Out Behind Him A Sort Distance--something He Had Not Done In Months. Hubby Came In Offthe Road And I Neer Thought To Tell Him And Suddenly He Wa Shouting At Me That Buck Hd Sreched His Legs Behind Him. Jery Was Thrilled That Our Old Man Hd Done That. And He Wa So Impressed Tht He Started Taing The Pill Version--i Used The Powdered For Buck, 1/2 Scoop Over His Spper, Andwa Also Giving It To Kaycee. She Hadhad The Knee Surgeries At 16 Months And 14 Months Alter. She Was Not Showing Signs Of Arthrits At 7, But I Started Her On It Anyway. It Can Be Found In The Joint Sup Setion At Walmart.
