Arthritis in Dogs
Well 7 month post surgery Talla Dega has already begun having arthritis in her back left leg. The doctors tell me now that she must live a limited activity schedule or I will end up with a crippled dog. Considering she is only 4 we have a long way to go.
I can't help but be pretty mad about this since they were all about convincing me she would live a normal full life. Dega is even more mad since she can't seem to figure out why she doesn't get as much time having fun.
They are prescribing me Dosequin w/MSM to help her joints. Does any body have feedback regarding this?
I was also wondering if there was other methods that may help her in prevention of further areas being affected.
Till then dock diving is approved just not a full weekend anymore.
Thanks for any advice.
