    So happy to hear your boy is doing better! Another thought; have you tried seeing an integrative vet? There are so many options now that weren't available even 10 years ago. Chiropractic care and acupuncture are some treatments that have really helped dogs with mobility issues. Herbal remedies can also be very helpful when provided by a vet with training in this type of medicine. The nice thing is that these treatments can be used with the conventional meds that are working so well. I hope your boy continues to improve!

    My boy Chance was helped by massage therapy! Yes, it does help!
    Hope he is feeling better each day!

    Anything and EVERYTHING that helps a senior dog is well worth the effort!!! That is what I did with my previous girl. Even acupressure at home-there are fantastic books-that you can get, and doing that helps a lot. Making their quality of life better is so important, and those precious acknowledgements that scream-thank you for doing for me was all I needed to keep at it.

    I am so sorry and may the meds be successful. My boy Lucky went down this road also and it sure is not easy.
