Older dogs with knee arthritis

<< < (2/2)

RobinS:
EFA's essential fatty acids.  Sounds like you have a good supplement program in place.  How about a grain free diet?  Grains really aggravate inflammation and dogs often do much better with no grains in their diet when they have arthritis.  Keeping your dog at a good weight to ease the joints too.

Thanks for the advice.  My vet has said it is arthritis. I am presently giving her fish oil and flax seed oil, along with Cosequin (glucosamine and condrotin) and MSM. What else do yo recommend?  What are EFAs?  

RobinS:
You probably would want to get a diagnosis from your vet to confirm what the issue is....it could be anything from arthritis to a torn ligament or any number of things.  If it is arthritis, you could use some good supplements and add EFA's and definitely Omega 3's.

hanakid:
I have a 14 year old Yorkshire Terrier with a collapsing right knee which I presume is from arthritis.  Has anyone had any experience with this and is there a solution or at least a way to lessen the "collapsing."
