Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Please describe to me what this difficulty looks like.
2) Is Probie on any joint supplements or medical?
3) Have any diagnostics been performed on his spine and hips? x-rays?
