Default what to give arthritic dog

Hi



I've got a 10 y old Tervuren that has arthritis. It is her elbows that i
think trouble her most, and the left one seems to be worse than the right.
Without Rimadyl she sometimes limps after getting up, and is a bit stiff.
About two years ago she got carthrophen injections, and they seemed to help
for quite some time. We will probably try a set of new injections at some
time and possibly acupuncture.

Now I give her Rimadyl and something with glucosamin, chondroitin and MSM
with her food.
She swims in the summer, how much depends on the amount of algae in the
water. She plays with my younger dog, and i try to keep her from jumping.

What else could i do to make her feel better?
Is there any point in giving her more glucosamine etc?
What other stuff is there that i can feed her, someone mentioned green
lipped mussles and Myristin in an earlier thread, what are those?

Rosa

The Glucosamine supplement might be made w/ green-lipped mussles.
GlycoFlex brand is (and has all the things you listed below).
