    I tried about 8 laser treatments and it didnt seem to improve him. He has a "good" improvement on the Previcox so I am going to keep him on that for now. Im researching on where I can take him to a pool for exercises and maybe a cart!

    Cart? The two wheeled kind that straps to them that takes the weight off of their legs?

    If so, search on Facebook for The Rolling Dog Project. for more info on them.

    My Punkin gets bi-monthly laser treatments too for his knees. At first though, he needed them weekly for at least a month so it can take effect. Is this what your vet did?

    Punks also gets daily glucoseamine, VetriScience Glycoflex I, to be exact. Since we started him on these, we've seen great improvement. Especially when he was getting laser therapy that first month, he was running like a puppy!

    I will Def check that out on Facebook too! yes we did do the progressive laser, it started at i think 3 treatments a week and tapered off. I just ordered Nusentia Pet Nutrition, a user on here recommended to me. She said she has 5 bullys and it works great! So we shall see, i cant wait for the warm weather so at least he wants to be outside some!

    [QUOTE His diet he has a RX food from the vet HILLS j/d its really expensive so i mix it with the pedigree adult joint food.

    Is Butters on the Hills Diet for a specific condition? Please do not take this the wrong way
    but it is not a very nutritious food nor is Pedigree (I feed it before I knew better). Both are
    grain based (increases inflammation & allergies) I have autoimmune diseases and since going
    off grains, my pain & fatigue have remarkably decreased. There are food articles here to read.
    Many bullies do great on Fromm's Beef Fritta and other grain free foods. I fed my bully, Avoderm's
    Grain Free Red Meat Meal, they have other flavors too and can be found in PetsMart & PetCo's.
    Best of luck and GOD bless!



    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Hi @Neesy33
    If you're not far from the city, there's a place called water4dogs http://water4dogs.com/ in Tribeca.
    They do rehabilition.

    Hoping others can recommend something in jersey.

    Oh, and Welcome to EBN.

    Mix equal parts of turmeric and dry mustard in a container. When you're ready to use it mix about a teaspoon of the mixture into a cup of warm chicken or beef broth and put it on their food twice a day. Trust me, you'll want the broth... the stuff tastes nasty

    The other post was cut off ")) He is on a RX from the Vet for the Hills JD dogfood which is supposed to be for his joints. I know the pedigree is not great but the other food is so expensive i have to mix it. I heard about the allergies, Butters is not bad with his. He gets flare up between his toes and sometimes a patch here and there. Over all (thank god) he is good with that. I will check out the other food from petsmart and see if maybe I can make a gradual switch. Thanks so much!!
