Re: One of Tucker's sisters needs a home :(

Sharon, I talked to Michelle, who tells me that the people who have her are going to try to work something out so they can keep the dogs. They say they love them and they don't want to lose them so they're looking at other options to keep them rather than rehome, and they've got Michelle to help th...

Alternatives to Metacam?

There ar SEVEN approved non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. There is absolutely no reason to say metacam is the ONLY one that will work. We carry 4 of them at my clinic, because one is not always the best choice. I try to avoid Deramaxx because I have seen a bad reaction to it, it was prob...

Re: Alternatives to Metacam?

did they say why ? She said it's the only pain reliever that works for pain and discomfort from hip displaysia. I would advise your friend to get a second opinion. She is. When the vet prescribed metacam, she said that she wanted to look at other options as she didn't feel metacam was right for her...

Re: Alternatives to Metacam?

Thanks for all the info, she's going to discuss the suggestions made here with her vet at their appointment this week. So my friend just got out of the vet appointment, and apparently her vet told her that she won't prescribe or recommend anything other than metacam. Needless to say, she's now look...

Re: Hip dysplasia :(

Massage and low impact exercise would be great! Even if you can't afford sessions of hydrotherapy, which is basically a treadmill in a tank with more and more water (thus more resistance) added over time, you can get the benefits from doing swimming or even walking in water on a level surface, like...

Re: Spondylosis (spinal osteoarthritis)

Buddy has spondylosis too and yet we only found it accidentally when we took xrays of her abdomen. She is non-symptomatic and if your guy only has slight arthritis, I would be questioning this "diagnosis", especially since your vet has suggested no more strenuous exercise in a dog who is ...

When she was originally diagnosed 4 years ago the vet prescribed metacam and joint supplements. Within 6 months she had to stop takin...
