Health Questions & Answers



About six months ago my vet found signs of arthritis in my 8-yr-old Black Lab. The vet wanted to put her on Adequan. I was leery and found the Arthro-ionx. My dog seemed to have relief for a while. The past 1-2 wks she's been lethargic, sleeping in bed most of the day, less than normal appetite, etc. Yesterday, the vet recommended Rimadyl. I gave her one today and with a previous dog I found success, but it scares me to have her on these. My question; does the Arthro-ionx sometimes work and then wear off or need more. She's a large lab, tall, and yes, over weight at 95 lbs, though we walk daily and she's on weight management food. Thanks for any insights you can share. The vet is talking about "quality of life." That phrase scares me.
