Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi my name is***** and I can help you. I'm sorry you are having problems with george.
What kind of dog is he?
Do you know the lab value of his anemia?
I am going to pass this back to another vet so they can help you with an answer (It's late in my neck of the woods). Good luck with George and someone will come to help you.
Hi there I am sorry no one got back to you last night but I can try and help you today.
Does george take any medications daily for pain/arthritis?
I am typing a response...ill be right back
I wonder if he is having good and bad days with arthritis and his age. I can offer a phone consult but If you prefer we can type.
Things to consider for george would be weakness from arthritis. When he sleeps he can regain his strength and have good days and bad. Spinal problems can also look like what you are describing. I wish I knew the degree of his anemia because this may be part of the problem.
I would like to help you more. Do you have more questions for me?
From reading your question it appears you have concern about quality of life also. I can help you. I am leaving the computer now but will be back later. I will look for you reply.
