With Indy, I used to give Cosequin and the original glycoflex, and that combination worked great. The original glycoflex has alfalfa in it, which can be an allergen and might make some dogs bloaty, just as a warning. Indy did very well on it, as did other dogs that tried that combination. So, as with Ruth, you might have to mix and match to find the right combination.

I've had to stop my G&C supplements for awhile (allergy maybe), and developed all sorts of knee pain. I opted for some hyaluronic acid, and that has helped a ton. I'm using 2 capsules of the jarrow HA each evening (I have a history of knee issues).

I took bear to the specialist this week and got some bad news. frown The side that requires the TPO he will fix if he thought the other hip could sustain the weight of her body. The other side will require a full reconstruction. He won't do the reconstruction until she is full grown and he will not do the TPO side at full grown. Basically because both sides are bad, one being worse than the other, he won't attempt either. She is already in enough pain that she doesn't sleep well at all. frown

Oh, I am so terribly sorry to hear this! Please start another thread pleasejust about Bear's hip issues. Perhaps those more experienced with such things can offer guidance. I am so deeply sorry that Bear is in so much pain that she cannot sleep well. My compassion for what Bear and you are both going through. hugging I am sending Bear good thoughts.

Oh my gosh I am so sorry to read this. Is she on any medication for pain? I agree a new thread dedicated to this would be a good idea.

I'm a little confused as my Cooper (has now had two total hip replacements) but the first one he was only 14 months so certainly not fully grown at all.

And what did he say about FHOs? That sounds like the option here. There is still a weight bearing issue, but that way they can do the bad side first.

He didn't even mention the FFO's. There are only 2 surgeon's in GA that are specialists that come recommend. I guess my only option is to take her to another one.

You might be able to just call the guy you talked to, ince you already paid the consult fee.

Dexters 6 month X-rays. Not sedated. Thanks to another board started him on adequan, then glucosamine and fish oil. Using zeel if he looks a little stiff or has a long day running about. Not using any pain killers yet at 20 months old.
