Question Hello from Montreal Canada

My 13 y.o. lab/malamute mix went from athletic to 'old behaviour' in 1 year or less it seems. I have been told he has lower lumbar/sacral degeneration but I really want to double check whether it's that, arthritis and/or an injury or neurological. So my questions is:

Does anybody know of a clinic in the Montreal area (or further if need be) that has a ZEN approach to the animals. We go to Dr. Foot which is great except he no longer does the testing at his clinic since he has downsized.

He can go down stairs alright (gets the physics of it) but coming up is often difficult and he tends toward sliding down. He's 60lbs.
  1. Our dog Ringo has Osteopath/Acupuncturist Dr. Julie Beaubien
  2. We give him: Recovery SA (but for his issue it doesn't seem to work)
  3. We give him: SAMe (for liver and mood)
  4. I cook his food and give high quality dog foods, incl. Urban Wolf dog food

Thanks for any advice, etc.
