My mom has a 14 year old chihuahua with horrible arthritis. She was so bad she couldn't even climb the front steps without a lot of pain. I'm not sure what the medication was, but the vet gave her a series of shots - one a week for six weeks - and she is like a puppy again! She jumps up on the bed at night, up and down from the couch, she runs like crazy and is so darn happy, it's amazing to see. I know the shots were not very expensive, either. It's really worth looking into, if it's the same kind of arthritis as your doggy it can make such a big difference.
