HD and Raw

Hi Everyone-

I took my older bully to the vet today to get her x-rays to see the severity of her Hip Dysplasia and it's NOT GOOD.

Very severe..90% out of joint and its also throwing her knees out of whack too. But the vet did say that her weight was excellent and he was also amazed of how well she can walk with how bad her HD is. He said you cant even tell by looking at her that she has it. She's such a happy girl. I like to think its becuase of how well we've maintained with her raw diet, but who knows?....

So now, can anyone recommend anything in particular for her, food wise? I already give her glucosomine on a regular basis. But Im wondering if there is any type of meat/organ/ nutrients that I can give her to help her bones/joints?
