Health Questions & Answers



Hello, I have a 9 yr old male toy poodle who was operated on about 5 years ago for a ruptured disc in his back. A few days ago he was experiencing some back issues and whining when he was lying on his back or would roll over. He also could not bend his neck down to eat his food or drink water. The next day he stayed in his bed and wouldn't move. I gave him some meticam and later arnica pellets, and since has slowly been improving. I was wondering if there's something i can do to try to rebuild his cartilage and help take down the inflammation. He also has allergies to certain thing so he is on boiled chicken and eggshell calcium but no other supplements because he is a very picky eater, and if you alter his diet in the least he will have diarrhea for days. If you could give me some recommendation I would greatly appreciate your input.
