Think itís time our Mol had some joint help other than Yumove.
Can I get Metacam without prescription?

Gerrie just had a thought what about trying Cartrophen injections?

http://www.cartrophen.com/

I've used this in the past, safer than NSAIDS. Wink

Think we tried everything when we had Woody. One of the best things was hyaluronic acid. Probably spelt it wrongly. Can buy on ebay, a clear tasteless liquid which you add to water brand is Wilsons. Used it myself when had a frozen shoulder. Riaflex is also very good. Having just had a hip replacement I was given similar type of drug to metcam along with blood thinners to prevent clots. No stomach protectant given. After 2 days I was vomiting blood so canít say I am keen on the metacam types. Hope you get something that helps.

Hi Gerrie
if you can please do not give metacalm, the side effect's of that and Rimadyl
are really bad for dog's
Bryan and myself have alaway's given our dog's Synaquin which help's re, build the cartilage etc and we also have started Izzie on Tumeric for dog's
and her walking is brilliant
Sunaquin you can get on line and, Future You you can cet Tumeric for dog's
Izzie is 12 and 4month's and nobody believes she is that, run's about like a puppy with Gem
hope you get this sorted
lot's of Love Izzie
x

Yes Turmeric can be really helpful if the dog can tolerate it, even better if combined with black pepper.

There is also Golden Paste ( turmeric based ) - ask Mr Google for the definition and for websites that tell you how to make it, or that offer it pre-made. It is a mixture of turmeric and other ingredients

Of course, you would always check with your vet before trying it... Smile

Hi Izzie here
it is not Tumeric on it's own, this is especially made and refined for dog's
it is like a miracle , Izzie was starting to get wobbly when walking, os we saw an advert ,, company "Future You"
and I ordered it it is only about !0
and is called CURCUPET-K9
Expert Joint Care
and they are excellent, advertised a lot and reviews are suiperb
I am on the Tumeric for Adult's myself and it is a big help
very helpful company, seemingly very old dog's benefit a great deal from this
xxxx

How's Mollie doing on the CBD oil Gerrie? I'm thinking of trying it for Sprytes' anxiety issues..

Well .. we feel that she has improved a little. Her left hind leg doesnít give way much at all now. It tended to happen after having laid down for a while .. I know the feeling Rolling Eyes she is also on two crushed tabs of Yumove and has a little fish 4 dogs salmon mousse on her food too. When this bottle has gone I will get a stronger one. I started on the weakest as I didnít know how she would be on it but she is fine. Apart from singing ďIf youíre going to SAN Francisco and wearing flowers in her hair Laughing Worth a try Very Happy

Thanks Gerrie Very Happy Having had a look at the Simply site it seems they advise starting low. I did find this site (I buy Talas' allergy remedies from them) where they sell one especially for dogs, it's available in powder form which would be handy, I think you need some sort of Vet approval though to buy it if you are in the U.K. even though it's a U.K. seller.
