Hi, I have a 13 year old Female Dalmatian and she is
suffering with arthritis in her hind legs. When standing she tends to
squat. i.e. bends her back legs in a squat position and tends to lean
against doors and cupboards. She has been falling in my pool in the
last 9 months on various occasions. She is either too sore or too lazy
to go outside to do her business and when I have her out for a long
while and then bring her inside this is when she decides to do her
business. Yet she always shows an urgency to go out when wanting to
urinate. Yesterday she was panting and dripping saliva whilst panting.
I thought she might just be hot because it was a very hot day
yesterday. The Specialist Vet said she was very very very very sore so
he put her on Previcox, Neurontin and a Paracetamol tablet every now
and again. When first administered she was throwing up and one night
she was foaming at the mouth. She then had to have a anti-nausea
injection and some tablets. She is now on Cortisone and Neurontin.
Even with the pain medication she still seems to be in a bit of pain.
This morning she seems fine apart from the sqautting. Today I am
thinking of putting her down so that she is out of her misery and no
Please can you advise me as to what I should do further before I take the drastic step. Chondroitin and Glucosamine with Fish Oil tablets, and Vitamin C? Are these a good way to go? I look forward to your urgent response and help.
