Dear India,

It sounds like it is more than just arthritis. If a dog can't put much pressure on one leg it has to transfer more weight to another; then it can stress that one out too. Please see your veterinarian for a check up and let us know what the diagnosis is. If you can give us more information, perhaps we can help you with more options to provide healing and comfort for your dog. PROMAXOL might be a good product to use if there is pain. It is much safer than NSAIDS. It can reduce inflammation and stimulate healing.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
