    Olive oil has to be one of the best and most versatile things going.

    We use the turmeric for our horses, they have been on it for about 6/7 years. It's worth looking into, there is a lot on the internet about 'Golden Paste'.
    Turmeric, cold pressed Olive Oil and freshly ground black pepper. Our boys are on that.

    Dogs can be prescribed Tramadol or Gabapentin for arthritis.
    My 11 y/o sheltie is now on them. Works well for her.

    That would be my advice. Only thing I can add is good dry food like science plan and add oil and or oily fish. You can usually buy equine glucosamine much cheaper and it is the same thing.
  6. Not sure if it's been mentioned but tins of sardines a day. That's what we give our dog. Vets advice

    Would this be a good thing to give to a puppy? Or nee point?

    Mine has arthritis, and the other month seemed crippled by it, took her to the vets and they did (seemingly) some chiropractic kind of work on her and she came out really well. So worth looking into that. The change in her was amazing.
  13. Not sure about a puppy or small dog, but would be ok with a fully grown medium sized and above dog. Bob started getting slight stiffness when he about 9, so that's when the vet said to start. I just put Jack on them at the same time as I thought I might as well protect his joints as well even though he's the younger one.

    Yumove tablets (don't buy from your vets or pets@ home as they are massively over priced there)

    Golden paste - look online on how to make this

    Hydrotherapy - from 4 years old my boy used to go to the butterwick hydrotherapy on a weekly basis. The improvement this gives most dogs is unbelievable.

    It's strange my dog chases the ball on the beach fine but proper drags his leg when going upstairs

    We sent our greyhound Molly to the Northeast Hydrotherapy Centre 2 - 3 times per week for over a year and they were amazing. The hydrotherapy exercise and laser treatment she got there definitely prolonged her life, bless her.

    I would say the stairs are a different form of movement compared to running on the beach. The hydrotherapy at butterwick also have a water treadmill where they will check how your dog is walking/running. They are really good, highly recommend.

    Like I said Buddy, used to go once a week after he had back operations (had 2 operations to remove slipped discs).
  20. I was reading that the freshly ground black pepper makes the active ingredient in the turmeric work more effectively.

    It may be worth trying adding it to @HerdnMulhall s turmeric and olive oil regime if it doesn't upset the dog.
