I need some help here. A friend of ours have a German shepherd mix who is 12 years, It´s a very energetic, healthy dog if it wasn´t for her hips...She wants to run, but her hips say stop! She doesn´t have so much muscles in her hips, they are weak, but she can run and walk, but not as fast and long... I just want to help her...She is so sweet and my dog´s best pal... :'( Glucosamine? or anything else, something witch can strengthen her hips a little bit...I would love to see her running together with my dog again...

I have had Ellis on Metacam for over 2 years - it really helps him. You need a perscription from a vet
<br />Ellis (brown) & Yukon (yellow) - Sadly, we helped Ellis "move along" on Feb 22, 2007 at age 15 1/2 - and Yukon died suddenly on Feb 1st, 2006 - 4 days before his 11th birthday. We are devestated.
Metacam works for Daisy, too, as has the low level laser therapy.
My oldest dog Blue is very much the same. He is nearly 16 and loves to chase sticks and balls but is having a lot of problems with his back legs. They often give out on him and I know that he has quite a bit of pain in all his legs. Currently I have Blue on monthly cartrophen injections, daily Rimadyl, senior food with added Glucosamine and Condroitin (sp?). He has his good days and quite a lot of bad days, it's just a shame when he is so healthy is every other way. I am thinking about trying accupuncture as well. I think that it is a good thing to keep them active just be aware of their limitations.
Won't someone please feed me!
