Had a scare at 5a and gave him all of his morning meds. At 6:15a I was able to bend his front left wrist and elbow. He also took a few steps on his own. Going home at lunch to med him again and check on him.
By your side, Andy. Hugs to that good boy.

Hi I am hoping Jack s feeling better and I know with senior dogs you have your good days along with your bad days...I'm recently dealing with rhumatoid arthritis in my chocolate 8 year old and there are a few things you can do to help alleviate the pain of OA...RA is a whole other can of worms.
If you are noticing swollen joints in the hock or carpus foot area you may be dealing with just bad achy joints and outside of just trying to maintain Jack as painless as possible massage the area when you can...circulation and blood flw can help...and another alternative would be to work with a canine rehab specialist one that has been certified by university of Tennessee by Dr. Darryl Millis and Dr. Levine. There are some amazing rehabilative protocols available to our senior loved ones.
Some information to read up on would be "Rejuvate" joint Heath supplement....and rehab for senior dogs using various methods.
Good luck and give Jack a pat for me!
