We put her on medicam for the pain but it didn't help, I will ask my vet about those injections. Thanks for the advice!
Does your dog like to swim ? I was told have my dog swim when he had arthritic but my Standard Poodle did not like to swim. Swimming is a way great for a dog to get exercise and is easier on their aching joints. I made sure there was no wheat in the dog food as wheat can be bad for arthritic .
