We have an older dog, I believe she is about 13 or 14 that has hip issues already, but just today I noticed that her back paw is folding under. It doesn't seem to bother her, but just wanted to see what it might be.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: SadieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sadie?Customer: I don't think so, she's had hip issues for a few years now and could barely move, but when we moved in with our two younger dogs, she got new life to her and runs around the yard like a puppy.

Hello,I wanted give my dog joint supplements to ease her discomfort. These include Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and Omega 3 fish oils. I was wondering if there is any particular brand that's best suited for dogs with joint issues and I also wanted to know what the dosage should be.I also see plenty of supplements, especially fish/krill oil, for humans and wanted to know whether they are suitable for dogs or if I should get fish oil supplements specifically made for dogs?Thank you!

I have a boxer and She is going to be 7 in July. She is 55

I have a boxer and She is going to be 7 in July. She is 55 pounds and gets regular walks and runs in. For the last year, when we push her a little or she jumps more than usual, her hips seems to really bother her. After the walk she gets up really slow and tries not to use her back legs when going down a few stairs. Is there a supplement or vitamin can give her to help with this?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: KyaJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kya?Customer: No that is it

My older dog has become very aggressive to our other dog. He

Hello Pearl, my older dog has become very aggressive to our other dog. He has had 2 cruciate ligament operations and has never properly recovered. I think some days he wakes up quite sore and it seems then that he is aggressive. Unfortunately now I have become paranoid and am looking for the certain look that he gives the other dog just before they go into a full fight. It's horrible to watch and makes me sad. I have not gone to the vet because I do not want the dog to be put on valium and be doped up all the time but I am at my wits end as to what to do - PetraJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. How old is Petra?Customer: My name is ***** ***** is Charlie. He is a miniature black poodle of 14 and half yearsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Petra?Customer: I think it's a combination of his soreness and maybe a power struggle as the other poodle is slightly younger and I feel that he feels my anxiety

She is a 15yr old Australian sheppard mix. She has slowly

She is a 15yr old Australian sheppard mix. She has slowly lost weight over the last year which I attributed to age/declining health. For the last 8-9 months she paces around the house 24/7 when awake, and for the past few months she has been very persistent about getting her head rubbed/massaged around her ears and upper neck, several times a day. Bowels move fine and ussually urinates 3-4 times a day with good volume. She still walks around the block 1-2 times a day, usually sleeps well at night as well as more naps, which seem appropriate for age. She has been given aspirin in the past, but 325mg knocked her out for over 12 hrs and one time since I tried 81mg, with the same effect. She does have on/off eye drainage, mostly from the left eye. Just wondering if the pacing and intense head rubbing are symptoms of anything you are aware of. I don't want aggressive care, as my vet would like, due to age. I just don't want her to suffer and wonder if it would be better for her to be put down. The last 2 days were normal except she has not peed since yesterday morning and she paced most of the nite, but is now sleeping.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: MollyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Molly?Customer: She does have a kind of sweet smell around her head, which makes me think she probably has a chronic yeast problems.

My 6 year old Doberman has had some joint issues (or could

Hi Dr. B, my 6 year old Doberman has had some joint issues (or could have been a leg or shoulder injury as he's very active) and was recommended Dasuquin tablets which seems to be helping. My breeder has also recommended the brand Glycoflex, for glucosamine as its more pure in natural ingredients but I haven't used it yet as I was intending to finish the Dasuquin before starting the Glycoflex. Lastly, I just purchased Salmon Oil to add to my dog's existing diet in order to help improve and protect his heart/joints/skin, ect. (this brand: https://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-All-Natural-Supplement-Pump-Bottle-Dispenser/dp/B0002ABR6E/ref=sr_1_5?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1476246133&sr=1-5&keywords=salmon+oil+for+dogs)The issue is he's slightly overweight although he doesnt look it. You can faintly see his ribs but I think its more so, muscle mass. In efforts to help in lose 5-10 pounds since he's 100 now, what do you recommend I use? Is the salmon oil fattening for him? Can I use the Salmon oil in lower dosages along with the Dasuquin or Glycoflex?I've attached an image of him so you can see his weight. Thank you for your help and advice! Appreciate it!
