glucosamine

Hi I have a 8 1/2 year old GSPointer . On recent visit to vets I was advised to put her on Glucosamine & Chrondrotin . She has been on them for 6 weeks now but I haven't noticed any improvement in her general movements. Is it advisable to keep her on these tablets now that I have started. Also could cod liver oil be of benefit to her? She is not good at taking these tablets but loves the c of o capsules!
Some dogs tolerate the chondroitin fine, but to be safe, I would first try straight glucosamine, maybe about 500 mg a day. Give it every day for a few weeks, and see if that helps. In the meantime, you can try an enteric coated low-dose aspirin tablet (80 mg like they sell for heart patients, but be sure you get the enteric coated), once a day with food. If the glucosamine works, then you can discontinue the aspirin after possibly as short a time as a few days.
Is there anything we should avoid doing when breaking them? Otherwise, she is in good health except for arthritis which is being treated and she is moderately active and at the vet's two weeks ago.
It really was a miracle for her and got her back on all 4 paws for the rest of her life. Keep an eye out for arthritis problems in that joint. We had to keep our dog on dermaxx for the rest of her life, but it never caused her any trouble. Thanks for taking such good care of your dog!
There is no accurate skin or blood test for food allergy in pets, the test and treatment are the hypoallergenic diet trial with a single protein and carbohydrate source that he has never been exposed to before (Royal Canin rabbit/potato is my favorite) and nothing else for 8 weeks. If the symptoms go away and stay away, then its food allergy and the hypoallergenic diet is continued lifelong.
I then jolted, realising I must have fallen asleep, who knows for how long. I tried to get up but both my legs were entirely dead, such that all I succeeded in doing was throwing myself onto the floor. There was no sensation in either of them at all. I managed to drag myself up into a sitting postition, then using strength I no longer thought I had dragged myself to standing, to get the blood flowing in my legs again.
Reduced swelling reduces pain, allowing dogs to stay more active and use muscles, which helps prevent loss of muscle mass. I would go for Omega 3 supplements, plus Glucosamine and Chondroitin (I have forgotten the exact dose of Glucosamine/Chondroitin per pound of the dog's weight, but I give my 28lb dog the max. dose for her weight which is 500mg Glucosamine, and 200mg Chondroitin, so maybe you can calculate from that....
Home cooking was a Godsend for that puppy, so you might want to consider it for Misty. Also, he was a large breed dog (border collie/collie cross). Misty is a small girlie, no? So her body size will be in your favor in this. PLEASE post updates to let us know how she is doing and know that you will both be in my thoughts and prayers.
She continues to try for us, and we are fighting so hard for her-LIke others, I tuck her in at night (she sleeps on the loveseat with her "bankie" covering her). I am sleeping in the den with her so I can give her support throughout the night. Neither of us are getting much sleep. I have her spoiled now with hand feeding other than her baby food, and I hold her plate while she licks it up.
I found a person on the MSN body odor support forum who had a bad odor for a long time and then the odor went away after being treated for H. Pylori, but then the coughing and sneezing started after that. Interesting. Another person on the MSN board said he was also treated for H. Pylori and then the coughing/sneezing started! Question: Do any of you burp a lot? Here is a thread that should be read: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=561071#i Read the replies to that link also.
