Young Dog has Hip Dysplasia

Hi, I have a 7 months old Border Collie who was just diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia. Right now he doesn't seem to have pain at all, and the vet told us he doesn't have arthristis in it yet. He grew up really fast, he is now 43 lbs at 7 months which is pretty big for a Border Collie. The x-ray shows that the bone ball and sockets are intact, but they don't stay in. Only the ligaments hold it there. He still runs and play.  We decided not to do the surgery, but we want of course to offer him the best possible life... and especially a pain free one. For now, he doesn't have pain and he is still young. I was wondering what are my best options and if your product would help prevent further damage? I thought of starting him on Glucosamine. What would be your suggestions? Thank you so much! -Macha-

Hip Dysplasia treatment options/products

My 70lb., approximately 1 year old Chesapeake Retriever was recently diagnosed with "significant" hip dysplasia. They suggested I do surgery that carves out the joint so the femur head gets better coverage (this description is in my words) I cannot afford this expensive surgery, its major and it doesn't sound like a definite cure. My dog has not shown alot of signs that I have detected although she does have a limp but has some sore and redness on her pad and in between toes that we are attributing the limp to at this time, the x-rays show early signs of degenerative disease, right muscle wasting. Help. What if any great products or treatments could I start her on to slow the process down to extend her quality of life, reduce pain etc for now and in the future. Thank you for any help you could give me.  -Janelle-

Dog has Hip Dysplasia

My 5 1/2 yr old lab "Chloe Mae" was diagnosed w/ severe hip dysplasia.  Xrays were done. I am starting her on the Barf diet (gradually) and am now pursuing supplements to give her as well. My concern is, I am afraid I will over supplement her. I have been giving her Dbl strength glucosamine chondroiton with MSM for 2 years. I am interested in the Arthro-IonX & Omega 3/6/9 supplements. I also read Vit C, kelp, flax oil and hyaluronic acid is also very good. My other labs have lived up to 12, 14 & 15 1/2 yrs of age respectfully. Chloe apparently inherited the disease per my vet and as the Xrays showed. Thank You -Donna-

Dog has Hip Dysplasia

Our son's male lab (91/2 yrs.old) was born with hip dysplasia and had surgery at approx. 6mths old. What, in your opinion, is the best pain medication that would't compromise his liver? They tried laser treatments with no positive results. Deramaxx was tried but liver enzymes went up & now another med would have to be added to protect the liver. The cost is $300/month which is rather exhorbitant. -Nicky-

Hip dysplasia diagnosis in a 2 year old dog

Hello, Our 5 year old lab was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at 2 years old. She was prescribed Rimadyl and glucosamine and to lose weight. She has lost weight and the meds seemed to help some but we would rather she have something more natural and safer that rimadyl. We have a 50 acre farm and after running around awhile with our other dog and our boys, she really suffers with stiffness and weakness. She is better after a night of rest. Is this considered being in "crisis?" Money is tight and I want to make sure my purchase of Artho-IonX will help her and that I'm giving it as I should. Thank you for your time.

Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia

I just found out yesterday that my nearly 4 year old Aussie has severe arthritis and hip dysplasia. He is 62 pounds and not fat. The vet said that he is looking at a hip replacement sooner than later. He just started on Resources Joint Support Plus. they wanted to give him Previcox 227mg 1/2 tab once a day as needed. It was $190. for 30 tabs! My dog trainer said that he could probably take Meloxiacam 2.5 mg, 1/4 tab w/ food and be fine. HELP!

Puppy with hip dysplasia

Hi, my 9 month old shepherd huskey cross has just recently been diagnoised with hip dysplasia and I was just wondering if your Arthro-IonX product can be used with glucosimine? Right now she is on a vet prescribed pain med for bad days but I was going to try this product to see if we can get her bad days to become limited. Also are there any places in Canada that I can get this product or is it just on line?

My dog is diabetic and has hip dysplasia

I have a 13 year old pug with diabetes and is on insulin, (diagnosed july last year) and has hip dysplasia. I emailed to find out if the Arthro-IonX product would cause problems with the insulin and received an answer which said no so I ordered it. But at about the same time I received the Arthro-IonX, our dog was starting to have an increase in hunger. We have never been successfull at doing blood test, so we took her to the vet monthly to spot check. We are spending a couple of months where there is not a lot of vet access so I bought Diastix glucose test strips and started about same time as your product. her readings started high, but went off chart shortly after. I started giving Arthro-IonX. The product info for Arthro-IonX said not to use metal bowl and the instructions on the test strip said metals could affect readings. I stopped your product and readings went down to high, but not extreme. We are having a glucose curve done today just to figure out what is going on. My question is does your product have any interaction with the Diastix that would affect the reading? With your product the readings were around 1000 but dropped to 500 a couple of days after stopping (based on the color chart). the Arthro-IonX seems to help in the short time we used it but had to stop to isolate what was happening with blood sugar. As I said, we are not able to do blood test so I had hoped the glucose strips would help us monitor better.

My dog has hip dysplasia

Hi there..We just took our 1 year old rescued mixed breed pup to a specialist yesterday who informed us she has severe hip dysplasia along with arthritis and two bad knees...she told us to start Tahlia on glucosamine ASAP (the costco brand) which we bought the biggest bottle we could find...Would we give this to Tahlia in addition to the glucosamine? Would you suggest anything else to help her as well? Donna

Hip dysplasia vs degenerative myelopathy

My dog started dragging his right leg 2 weeks ago...the vet took x-rays and said the dog's hip(ball and socket) were loose...he put the dog on steroids thinking it may have been a slipped disc. The dog gained so much weight that he cannot even get up on his own and walking him is out of the question. Without an MRI the vet said he doesn't know whether it is a tumor or degenerative myelopathy. Could it be hip dysplasia and does any medicine work?...should I get a second opinion as to whether a hip replacement is the way to go?

Dog has Hip Dysplasia, how can I help my dog?

My dog was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and he is a 1 year old Shih Tzu. Sometimes he has awesome days when nothing seems to bother him but other days, depending on his activities or just bathing him, he shows a lot of pain. He will start limping for a few days. I don't have the money to do the surgery, do you think this product can help my dog I'm desperate, thank you in advance.
