Help with my old friend

Postby roosterbrews » Sun Oct 14, 2012 8:59 am

Vinnie is a 10 year old GSP and yesterdays hunt seems to have been a bit much for him. He is having problems getting up and his hind legs seem to be really bothering him. He is in good condition weight wise and is a very happy dog. Is there anything I can give him to help him out or just more recovery time and shorter hunts. I know some sort of anti-inflamitory is most likely what will help the problem right now and we are going to the vet monday but is there anything else to help him build him up. I would hate to bench a dog totally with as much drive for hunting as this but he is a hurting unit right now.

Read this and try it. Great stuff and takes about 1 month to see the difference. Beats the heck out of the other joints compounds.

I'll do some reading on the Ester C I think it has more to do with old joints than hip displasia but i'll let the vet decide.
