Arthritis and dogs - Answered by Dr. Slome

We have a great-spirited young pup in an old dog's body (16 years old!) who has arthritis that has been getting worse over the last couple months. She has a hard time getting up off her chair, but once she's up she does fine. She still loves to romp outside and takes regular walks of up to a mile every day.

Does anyone have experience with ways to make her more comfortable? We are now giving her rimadyl and glucosamine daily, but wonder if there's any other remedy that will help?

Thanks for your help!
