Update on Denny

We had to take Denny back to the vets today as his limping was getting worse - today they did Xrays which found he has severe osteo/degenerative arthritis in both his front elbow joints - the right one is the worst of all. They have increased his medication and added a second one and we will be taking both Denny and Reilly to see an Orthopedic Vet in 2 weeks time. Mom is very sad as Denny will be 5 in a couple of weeks and shouldn't have to be dealing with this already.

  1. That is so sad for him. Have you tried Rejenease? Katie had a limp from her arthritic joint for several years but after starting on Rejenease at the double dose for the first month, it went away after just two weeks. It still helps her immensely and the limp has not returned. She's been taking it for about 15 months, no side effects like the nasty drugs that ruin vital organs. Just a thought.

  18. Denny, the acupuncture made me not limp any more with the hip dysplasia. I can't explain it, I just know it worked. It doesn't hurt a bit and I love going there. Maybe you have a doggie acupuncturinst near you that your Mom could try for you. POPT for you, dear friend.

    Ooooh sorry am late to this (been travelling about again).... Deary me Denny, the "ol' arther" can be a bit of b***** can't it? I know that mum will ensure you get all the care you can though, so POTP from me to you and also to Reilly. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  29. Poor Denny! Far too young. Could it be a genetic predisposition? Are Denny and Reilly related by blood?
    I hope he can get some good treatment. I wonder if you have heard of Noel Fitzpatrick over there? He is doing amazing things for dog orphopaedics. He has a tv show called the supervet.
