Default Arthritic Rott-Shep

After many years, one of my "pups" is showing signs of increasing
arthritis and hip dysplasia. She's 10 years old, and has been
treated for Addisons' disease since six months of age. She's been on a
very low but consistent dosage of both prednisone and florinef since
that time (the dosage reduced slightly over time). As of late, the
skeletal/muscular problems have been getting more severe. But one
incredibly tough dog who's going to be around much longer than all had

Rather than seek opinions, I'm seeking out links to good sites for
arthritis/joint problems and treatments. I'm wanting to see what the
current status of this situation is.


We've had very good results with our 7 yr old Lab on Celadrin. It's
OTC - not horribly expensive and has given relief when
glucosamine/chondroitin/msm didn't. Keeping his weight under control
and making sure he gets controlled, sustained exercise (i.e. walking
on a leash) has also helped.


Not a whole lot of info about use on dogs out there - i can just give
you my own experience and hope that it helps you.
