    I appreciate everybullys' input!


    UPDATE: Well, it's been a lonnnng time of treatment, and the vet also started him on laser therapy, but it didn't help He was recently started on Metacam (aka Mobic), but it doesn't seem to be helping. Several of you mentioned Neurontin; I'll see if our vet would want to try that? I also wonder if Galliprant might be better for pain, since it has fewer side effects than the Metacam.

    For time being as we say. Prep yourself a little mix of essential oils.

    1oz of fractionated coconut oil the clear one as CO is an anti inflammatory and add a good 8-10drops of frankincense oil..potent supplement that helps reduce inflammation. Itís considered comparable to NSAID pain relievers. Then massage the pain area. Other beneficial essential oils for arthritis that can be used in similar ways include myrrh, turmeric, ginger, orange, peppermint and lavender oils.

    There's an oil already mix for you called Thieves. You can get in as oil.or balm. GREAT STUFF!!

    Also add to your dog's food tumeric 1/4 teasppon and ginger 1/4 teaspoon asap.

    Is he over weight? Hard on joints. If he can walk as exercise would be great. People think once you have arthritis we are limited to exercises. Humans nust like pets we need to move and not sit there.
