She's already on tramadol 2x daily and has been for about a year with nsaids I totally understand your point about waiting to long that's exactly why I'm worrying about this now. I don't want to do that to her. I will say that she still loves life most of the time but if I let her do all her favorit...

Well that just ruined my night. I can't beleive this boy can't catch a break. If I had the room he'd be here in a split second, I just love Daddy. Maybe I'll hit the lottery and be able to buy a huge house...

Does she enjoy eating and can she eat without pain? Is she able to eliminate without pain? Can she be comfortable when at rest? Can she go for short walks without problems? Is she content (ie., not restless and craving more activity or showing signs of depression or listlessness)? I think this is t...

what pain meds is she on? have you tried tramadol in conjunction with an NSAID? if you get a script, it's one of the $4 generics at walmart/target. i think i'd try that before giving up She has been on Tramadol 2x day for just over a year with Deramaxx 1x daily (been on the nsaids for over 3 years ...

Thanks everyone. I have looked into acupuncture and i hate to say this but i just can't afford it right now. I have poured so much money into this dog from her knee surgeries and skin issues to meds for both and swimming/rehab and if I had any $ now I would do it in a heartbeat again. We've been doi...

Oh I forgot to mention that my regular vet who is very conventional said there isn't really much more he can think of to try except keeping her on the nsaids and adding in steroids at the same time which he was very honest in saying (and I already knew) that it will hopefully control her pain but ul...

She just turned 7 in Sept. which I know is young. She has had surgery on both knees, has severe arthritis in both of them (they sound like rice krispies as she walks and you can feel the bones grinding if you put your hand over either knee) and has had arthritis in her elbows for about a year and 1/...

How to decide?

We all know the APBT is generally a very stoic breed. When you have a dog that has chronic pain from things like arthritis how do you decide that enough is enough? If you had a dog that is on multiple pain meds (and has been on at least 1 pain med for over 3 1/2 years), cushy beds and restricted/con...

From the way you described her limp as "dropping her shoulder" I would be thinking about pain higher up then the toe. Did the vet palpate the elbow and shoulder? I would definitely try the cosequin but remember it can take up to 6-8 weeks for it to really have an effect. If

Bumping for Daddy who STILL needs a home! He is such a wonderful dog and has great manners. He's been on tv several times now and was also in a photo shoot to promote a fundraiser for a shelter (with a yappy chihuahua in his face). PLease let Aja knopw if you can help him out. I'll even help transpo...

If it doesn't go away after a lay off from the exercise then perhaps consider having his elbows x-rayed. It's not as common as HD but dogs do get eldow dysplasia that can cause pain/limping. Most likely though it is Pano as Sarah suggessted.

My guys love Flossies. They last Jada a pretty long time (sometimes 2 days) but Jezzy usually chomps right thru them in about a 1/2 hour or so. That is a good price, I usually buy them at Bowman's when I'm in there.

Jezzy snores really badly and most of the time she likes to sleep with her face burried under her front paws and a pile of blankets. Makes me wonder how she can get any air at all.
