Thank you Sarah for that valuable advice' I have just talked to my vet and he might need an op on his cruciate ligament , having xrays in a couple of days hope that helps some.
It wont get rid of the Arthritus though so I will look into those two drugs you mentioned for sure when I take Shane in to my vet.

Directly from Novartis. Haven't had to order any in quite a while. I stocked up when I got it last.

Hey everyone. Thanks for this great thread, it's a lot of info I've never seen before. We have a 3 and a half year old, Riley, who has started limping in the last few weeks. She is currently on her second week of anti-inflammatory medication, but so far it doesn't seem to have done much. We're concerned about how bad it might be. The vet will probably do an X-Ray if things haven't changed much by next week. She doesn't act any differently, still chases the ball, etc, but I don't know whether that means anything or not. Depending on the diagnoses, I'm sure I'll be back here to ask some advice from you guys. Again, thanks for creating this thread.

This is such great information thank you! I am just concerned about over doing it for my golden. He is 4 and just got diagnosed with hip dysplasia. How much can I give of all those supplements without over working his body?

Hip Dysplasia in Dogs: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention

I stumbled upon this article here about all the supplements I can give as well. Any suggestions for how much of what a 70 pound dog can receive on a daily basis?

You can do all of the different categories with a dog at the same time. If you are using commercial products, use the labeled dose. Otherwise I put the doses in the original post.

I'm on my phone, so I didn't go to the site you linked. I'll try to remember to come back here after I get on a real computer.

I don't think anyone has mentioned this but it's been a miracle worker on my family's goldens. Lifevantage Canine Health. I started distributing it because I couldn't believe what it did for a couple of our older girls, Shasta, 15, and Betty, 13. It's been amazing the difference they've had in arthritis and joint health.

Great post, my 12+ yr old lab was just diagnosed with pretty bad elbow arthritis.

I'm starting him on adequan
He's been on G/C for most of his life but I just started him on Arthrisoothe gold hip and joint formula (750mg gluc, 750mgMSM, 180mg cond, 135mg yucca, 135mg boswellia, 32mg type II collagen, 5mg HLA, & 5IU vit E)

I've also had him on Carlsons salmon oil since he was about 3 (dx with discoid lupus), he's been on 1000mg daily

I plan on starting him on vit E & C.

If he had a splenectomy 6 mo ago (benign!) is there any risk to upping his fish oil dosage to a more antiinflammatory level?

I have vetorofen and tramadol for giving him some relief on days he's in more severe pain but I'd like to be more cautious with using those

Hi come through two ops on Shanes Cruciate ligament a few months ago got an infection had to be redone poor darling he has arthritis in the other back leg,completed the Adequan course and then after about two weeks he went backwards so instead of the monthly injection will have to give it every fortnight as after the injection he was a different dog the next day it really works'also Onsior tab every day plus Glucosamine and six 1200mg fish oil but going to change to Krill same dose as its supposed to be so much better' I also suffer from Arthritis so will try it too.
For the last 3 months its been very hot here and the Goldie's do not like it prefering to stay inside with the Air con,makes it hard as Shane simply wont walk far ...he huffs and puffs in the heat' trouble is our dam is drying up so he cant go for a swim.

Cant hope we sell the farm soon so we can get a place close to the Sea also' it must have a swimming pool as Shane would never be out of it ...just hope he is still with us as all that non weight bearing exercise would be great for him.

My vet recommended Curcumin for Brooklyn's joint health. I found this product online and have been giving it to her for a few months and her mobility has improved a lot!
