Has your vet seen that video? Poor baby .
thanks, what else works besides fish oil?
[QUOTE=MatildasMommy;134066]Try a hotdog if all else fails. Lex is all handsome!! I love his smooshy face (oh, he has a cute bully butt too)
I am glad Matilda was asleep or she would of seen Lex.
Oh, I have also found something else if fish oil isn't working for some bully babies.
Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.
@KMARINO I added the video for you!
This may not be anywhere close to the same type of situation....but I have to tell you about Vegas. Vegas weighed in at 68 pounds 1 1/2 years ago. With his medicine..he tends to make him hungry and having seizures makes him forage for food. Vegas started limping pretty badly, favoring his back leg. I was almost certain that he had a torn ACL, in fact I even posted about it a few times.
We put Vegas on the stew diet and he is now down to 52 pounds. In the last year and 1/2 he has not ONCE favored his leg or limped. Not once. So, weight could be an issue. I tried finding a video of him limping...but could not locate one at this time.
Hope he continues to get better! Love you Lex!

Is there any improvement??
@lexterwayne I use cold milled golden flaxseed. It is in a powder form and you can find it in the vitamin section of your local pharmacy. I put a tablespoon of that in matilda's food once a day.
Who wouldn't love that face???
@lexterwayne any luck with the glucosamine? I use a product called Cosoquin. For allergy reasons my Lucy cant take the chew tabs so I buy the capsules, open and sprinkle on a spoonful of wet food. Then I mix that into her food bowl. Works like a charm.
If you want--I can send you a few capsules to try before you set out to buy a whole bottle and Lex wont eat it anyway. Let me know. I am not sure what is going on w/ Lex but the Cosequin has helped my girl sooo much with an arthritic knee. I rave about the stuff.
Also, keeping his weight down may help too as @Libra926 mentioned. I AM NOT calling your beautiful boy heavy, but any way to "lessen the load" on an arthritic or compromised joint/back will help. It is a struggle for us to keep Lucy's weight down--but we try.
Hope he is getting around better.
@lexterwayne , I have Mocha on Glycoflex III and it is wonderfull. You can purcahse them at your vets office or at Amazon. Mocha was also young when I notice her limp. After xray we decided it was time to start her on them. The bottle has the directions on how to use. Mocha now takes half of one tablet at dinner time. I crumple it into little pieces and mix it with her food. I put a few squirts of the grizzly Salmon oil in her food. Whatever you do you need to start now.
