My Newfie has severe hip dysplasia

Which medication would be better for my Newfoundland (4 1/2 Yrs) that has severe hip dysplasia? He takes Tramadol twice daily right now. Would I order Arthro-IonX or Promaxol for better help?

My dog was diagnosed with hip dysplasia when she was a puppy

My baby was diagnosed with hip dysplasia when she was about 9 months. I double checked with an orthopedic surgeon and he agreed. She is very active ans only shows signs every once in a while. She does this kind of kick with her hind legs. Besides that, she is very active. Runs, plays, I take her on walks. She loves to swim in the summer. I want to know if I should put her on supplemenets now. I know you want to sell me your product, which I heard helps. But, I really need to know what to do overall. Sheis almost 4 years old. Should I need to worry about this now? She is on a supplement called Dasaquinn. This helps lubricate the joints

Young Dog with Hip Issues

My 5 month old bernees/retriever has been having pain and limping on her back legs.  I do not know if it might be a hip problem due to the fact that everytime she walks she would swing her hips, but now that she has pain she doesn't swing them, but she is limping from both back legs.  She can't even stand to greet us on our lap or any to the ordinary. I would like to know if these are symptoms for hip dysplasia or is just that she might have goetten hurt or something. Thank you and have a great day. -Kurthland-

Dog with Severe Hip Dysplasia

I have a 10 mo. old Golden Retreiver with severe Hip Dysplasia.  The ball is only about 10% in the socket. I have her on Tramadol 50 mg. and Carprofen 75mg.  She is doing well--running, jumping, playing. Can I keep her on these long term or are other options? My vet advises me to put her down but I am not willing to do that. She is in training as a therapy dog and doing very well. She is a loveable sweetheart. Your advice please!! I am devastated. She is my life. Thank you. -Janine-

Dog has Rear Leg Pain

I have a 4 year old female German Shepherd (Charger).  She loves to play ball. This past July, I noticed that she might of strained herself doing so.  I took her to her vet, and the vet did some motions tests on her neck, back, etc and told us it could be sterile meningitis. So Charger was placed on prednisone for a week.  It look likes she got better, but not 100%. About a month later, Charger complained of pain again towards her lower back/hip area. So we took her back to the vet. The vet drew blood for tick diseases and the tests came back negative. She also took xrays and showed us a bit of hip dysplasia. The vet put Charger on Previcox 227mg once daily. It seemed to help, she was more active but still not 100%. Charger had another episode several weeks ago and back we went to the vet. She was given more Previcox, it seems to help, but lately, Charger complains (yelps in pain) after she gets up and will limp her right hind leg. Once she gets moving, she seems to be better. Once she goes out into the yard, she seems better. Could it be leg or back cramping, bad disk or ? Thank you!  -Louie-
