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) What breed of dog is Joe Paw?
2) Did he make improvements and then get worse again?
3) What medication is he on, if any?
4) Can you attach video showing the way he's walking?
