PostSubject: Keira :(   Sun May 31, 2015 12:53 pm

Keira has started to struggle on her back legs recently  
About 3 months ago she caught her leg down a hole she limped for a day then seemed ok so i didnt take her to the vets
A few weeks later she seemed to start limping a bit then she seemed to struggle when getting up
The vet checked her over a month or so ago and said it was her hips and gave me the talk about gsd and hip problems etc etc and said that atm she wasnt too bad but we could look at meds if she got worse     I didnt really think at the time it was her hips because she still races around the garden like a whippet  but then she struggles again like she has ceased up
Im in two minds about whether to go back to the vet and see what he says
My brain tells me she may have damaged something when she caught her leg but the vet i saw is an orthopaedic specialist and he said it was definately her hips causing the problem and possibly arthritis
im wondering whether an xray will confirm the problem but i hate the thought of my dogs being knocked out
Ive found some tablets called luposan joint power im thinking of getting to see if they help
has anybody tried these
ive also bought her a memory foam bed that she loves

Marley is the same Bren. :( Marley is on painkillers and also also 4 easeflex plus chews a day. when he is in pain His back arches like a cats does. He has to go back to see Neil in 2 weeks time.

I hope the meds help Keira

Awww poor Marley    How is he healthwise atm  
If i remember right hes about the same age as Keira    is he about 9    
Keira isnt too bad   she just seems to have really stiff joints when she gets up  i know the feeling im like that myself now
Ive ordered the luposan so i will try her on that to see if it helps
Where did you hear about easeflex Jude and do you need a prescription to buy them
I just googled them and they sound like they have the same kind of ingredients as the luposan
I'm hoping it helps her joints but if she doesnt seem to improve i will take her to the vets
She doesnt seem to be in pain just a bit stiff now and again
She still runs about like a puppy and over does it

Marleys EPI is under control with the lypex and the nutrix food which is a blessing. Neil our vet put Marley on easeflex after his fall from the bridge. You can get them of the internet without prescription. I get Marleys from the vets as I can claim from the insurance but I also give them to Kala I get hers off the internet as they are half the price!
Marley was 7 in October Bren hes a little younger than Keira

I google them and look for the cheapest to buy them off. they fluctuate in price. they are like a chew treat Marley and Kala love them

Fred is a few months older than Marley

If Luposan does not work you can try real "Grünlippenmuschelpulver", because in Luposan is only a little bit from that. I used it for Cary, but later she need more medicine with more from this ( sorry i only now the german word) " Grünlippenmuschelextrakt".

There are also good painkillers you can buy by the vet.

Fingers crossed

She seems to be alot better  
She isn't too bad if i thought she was in pain i would definately take her for pain killers
It's more that her joints are starting to stiffen up  She still runs around like a lunatic

hi bren
sorry ive not been around to reply

fred was 8 yesterday bless him
hes not doing too badly for saying hes got so many problems bless him...

he has severe arthritis, hd and possible cdrm .... hes on tramadol and metacam long term now

he also on turmeric(with black pepper and curcumin) and coconut oil alongside 500mg of human form glucosamine and chondroitin
he also has hydrotherapy every two weeks...all this combined has re built up most of the lost muslce on his hind legs
hes now on restricted exercise for the rest of his life, i no longer let him off lead on walks for a run as this can make the symptoms worse...

if i was you i would have the x-rays as it may be injury related hun and can be solved with physio or hydro etc ...
whatever if it reveals at least you will kjow for definate, she may even be viable for an op if itll make it better

other supplements you may want to try are yumove advanced...this has had lots or great reviews, also green lipped mussel is good stuff

hope all goes well with her hun xxx

Update on Keira
She went into the vets yesterday and had a small lump removed from her leg that had come up in the last few weeks (nothing serious) so i had her hips xrayed at the same time
She has arthritis  not too bad in the right hip but there was quite alot of inflammation in the left one   Shes on anti inflammatory meds and pain killers for three weeks to see if this improves the situation    I still think she may have injured herself a while back  and its never healed properly because she runs around like a loon  
She has the green lipped mussel Shelley   it seems to help

i would ask the vets to see if hydrotherapy will help it hun... as HD and arthritis often go hand in hand

Third trip back to the vets today to get her stitches checked and the little sod has been nibbling them so not healed as well as expected She has had the elizabethan collar on most of the time but has managed to get it off a few times
They have taken a few of them out as she's managed to burst them open and they aren't really holding that part of the wound closed anymore and its healing from the inside
She's back again on Monday evening to hopefully get the rest out then i need to take her back in another few weeks about the arthritis Her leg does seem to be alot better since she has been on the meds so i'm hoping he sees an improvement
