    He has given us a liquid pain killer which we are to give Fergie for 5 days, as well as this I already give him 2000mg of glucosamine a day, along with vitamin C and extract of green lipid mussel. I am also giving him the apple cider vinegar in his water thanks to the tip from Monica.

    Any other advice or information on how to treat/manage arthritis would be greatly appreciated, as I said, the vet doesn't see it as a big deal but he is not a bulldog specialist so I would value any opinion and advice from the professionals on here.

    Best Regards,
    Mark.
    Thanks for keeping us posted... arthritis is common in our bully babies.... I believe what you are doing will help, but as you know it doesn't go away, you can only manage the pain.

    If he is limping because he is in pain because he has arthritis and arthritis does not go away then why would he stop limping?

    Can you get Rimadyl where you live? It is an arthritis drug that has shown very good results.

    Hi Christy,

    I am not 100% confident in the vet but he is the best available until I get Fergie back to the UK where he will be taken to a bulldog specialist, I will look into "Rimadyl". I may even request the x-rays and send them to a specialist vet in the UK to give me a second opinion.

    Thanks for the input, Best Regards, Mark.

    I would request the x-rays then your new vet can look for any changes between now and then.
