    Hope she's on the mend soon. We use Dasuquin‎, and have had great results with it. Our EB doesn't have any joint issues, so we just use the maint. dosage. Our Rotty has had joint issues in the past, and the Dasuquin has helped tremendously.

    Thanks.. I think it'll take a while cause she was limping tonight.. Our schedule made her sleep a lot longer than she normally does..

    Just a follow up...

    It has been a few months with her joint medicine.. I gave her a high dose twice a day for an entire bottle.. Then I cut it in half to maintain the joint support.. Well she had been doing really good.. Not limping and we walk her down the mail box in the evenings to check the mail.. But this last weekend we had another dog over at the house.. The other dog is a very energetic boxer.. They played and played.. Right about time for the other dog to go home.. I noticed Harley looking uncomfortable.. She started limping again from the activity throughout the day..

    Her right now..


    She isn't use to the activity but she is only two.. I would think her being young she wouldn't have issues this early..

    She has an appointment in a few hours.. I will update again..

    It's not so much about age in bulldogs, it's their issues with ligaments & bones, it
    may be that she needs to have low levels of activity & short play times. She may
    always need joint support. Hopefully Vet can give a proper & more though answer
    & resulting plan to help her. Please let us know...cute pic of your Precious

    I hope you get some answers at the vet. She might have just played too hard and strained something when playing with the boxer. Do you have a raised bed for her? Frank would get really stiff and we got him a raised bed and it helped a bunch.

    Harley is such a cutie! That picture of her is adorable. I hope she feels better soon.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    These dogs are a rare breed. The boys turned two last Tuesday. Emmitt got up Monday afternoon and was limping so bad on his back leg he could not put any weight on it. He could barely get up to go outside. We were freaking out. Tuesday morning no limp. Running and jumping like normal. I think it was sleeping on his hip. Maybe his leg went to sleep. I don't know but I think it has to do with breed.

    Sorry!

    I took her to the vet for a check up and didn't even get to see the actual vet.. But the "nurse" I talked to only told me everything we already know.. Joint medication, exercise, weight loss, etc. so I have to schedule an appointment with the actual vet..

    I agree...their joints & ligaments can be so loose and look such a mess on x-rays
    that many Vets want to do immediate surgeries. It takes nothing for them to limp!
    Cami developed a terrible limp almost 2 years ago and after x-rays, sure enough,
    he recommended ACL done on both legs. After looking at what recovery entailed,
    decided to try for severe curtailment of all activity & put her on joint supplements.
    She's still okay...thank God!

    So glad Emmit is good to go too

    Bella got a sports injury at about 6 months of age. She saw several vets and got xrays...nothing wrong with her bones. I rested her for six weeks and and put her on NuJoint high dosage. She ended up fine, with no limping.

    THEN...a month or so ago, she lost her *****, running around the backyard like a crazy person, and she's been limping ever since. I tried to wait it out, hoping she'd get better....she hasn't, so I'm back to putting her on the leash for backyard walks, limiting her activity, and giving her the high dosage of NuJoint.

    Good luck with your sweet bully!
