11 year old Dog - Arthritis in both hind and Front right legI have a 11 year old Labrador retriever female. She has painful arthritis in back legs and one front leg.
There are days when she is fine, goes for a walk, however there are days when she plays a little or climbs down a couple of stairs or bed/ sofa, she gets severe pain in her legs.
When the pain starts she is unable to move, drags herself because she cant pick herself up or put pressure on her hind legs.
But when her three legs pain she is in worse condition cause she is not even able to drag herself as her front leg troubles her in dragging also.
She is on various maintenance allopathic medicines like Flex up, Reflex etc but I was looking for a little better solution here . I do understand arthritis is not curable but maybe something which can help her, if you can advise.

♥ Reva V 3 months agoHi, Though I am giving the prescribed medication and will continue with that, wanted to check if there is anything I can give as pain relieve for the days when she suffers from major pain bout. There are days when she gets extreme pain and is unable to move also , is there anything for those emergencies . Kindly suggest
NVY 3 months agoCan you please let me know whether Gels and Mag Phos together given every morning helped her in any ways in her pain. Are there more movement or more days she is better.
Once I hear back I shall suggest something for pain
♥ Reva V 3 months agoI believe I had seen an improvement by following the earlier recommended medicine and dosage. The latest bout of pain is because she wanted to sit on sofa when I was not at home, and jumped down from there. Her veterinarian had mentioned that she is not supposed to jump or take stairs etc so I avoid all of that, however this time she did jump from sofa/bed when I was not at home which suddenly aggravated the pain in her front right and hind right legs a lot.
