Adequan Canine is another suggestion. Your vet should be familiar with this product. Stanley has severe hip issues and I have 2 options, replace the hip or keep him comfortable. The comfort road is what we are currently driving.
I'm able to manage his discomfort by keeping him active living a low impact life, joint supplements, swimming. The Adequan was a science project I tried with Stanley this past winter and I have nothing but good to say about the drug. The cost is reasonable if you administer the drug at home.
Drop me a line if you want to hear more about my experiences using the Adequan on Stanley. It has not solved his standing in the pool problem but it sure made him more comfortable after a long hard day. email@example.com
