Keira has started to struggle on her back legs recently  Keira  :( 165548
About 3 months ago she caught her leg down a hole Keira  :( 165548 she limped for a day then seemed ok so i didnt take her to the vets Keira  :( 583730
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 Keira  :( 910222  but then she struggles again like she has ceased up Keira  :( 658515
Im in two minds about whether to go back to the vet and see what he says Keira  :( 300576
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 Keira  :( 300576 but i hate the thought of my dogs being knocked out Keira  :( 658515
Ive found some tablets called luposan joint power im thinking of getting to see if they help
has anybody tried these Keira  :( 300576
ive also bought her a memory foam bed that she loves Keira  :( 104934

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 Keira  :( 805515 Keira  :( 805515

Awww poor Marley  Keira  :( 805515 Keira  :( 805515 Keira  :( 805515  How is he healthwise atm  Keira  :( 300576
If i remember right hes about the same age as Keira  Keira  :( 300576  is he about 9  Keira  :( 300576  
Keira isnt too bad Keira  :( 583730   she just seems to have really stiff joints when she gets up Keira  :( 910222  i know the feeling im like that myself now Keira  :( 658515
Ive ordered the luposan so i will try her on that to see if it helps Keira  :( 910222
Where did you hear about easeflex Jude Keira  :( 300576 and do you need a prescription to buy them Keira  :( 300576
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 Keira  :( 910222
She doesnt seem to be in pain Keira  :( 583730 just a bit stiff now and again
She still runs about like a puppy and over does it Keira  :( 575435

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 Keira  :( 805515 Keira  :( 805515

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 Keira  :( 43464

hi bren Keira  :( 30413
sorry ive not been around to reply Keira  :( 805515

fred was 8 yesterday bless him Keira  :( 805515
hes not doing too badly for saying hes got so many problems bless him...

he has severe arthritis, hd and possible cdrm Keira  :( 743284 .... 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 Keira  :( 910222

other supplements you may want to try are yumove advanced...this has had lots or great reviews, also green lipped mussel is good stuff Keira  :( 805515 Keira  :( 805515

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 Keira  :( 165548  not too bad in the right hip but there was quite alot of inflammation in the left one Keira  :( 165548   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 Keira  :( 300576  and its never healed properly because she runs around like a loon  Keira  :( 575435
She has the green lipped mussel Shelley  Keira  :( 910222 it seems to help  Keira  :( 910222

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 Keira  :( 575435 She has had the elizabethan collar on most of the time but has managed to get it off a few times Keira  :( 894833
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 Keira  :( 575435
She's back again on Monday evening to hopefully get the rest out Keira  :( 910222 then i need to take her back in another few weeks about the arthritis Keira  :( 910222 Her leg does seem to be alot better since she has been on the meds so i'm hoping he sees an improvement Keira  :( 910222
