    So glad it was only a sprain! Sorry to hear about the infection and joints, but they are all easily fixable.

    Oh and xray did show slight arthritus in that knee which I guess the gluosoma is supposed to help with she said right now she don't think he needs pain meds long term (guess some bullys do) just short term till his sprain heals. She suggests walks to help keep everything good also said we need to make sure his weight stays good so he don't have worse issues with it later on

    Did the glucosamine help? Right now he's just on one a day

    @theparrisfive, the vet had suggested for Finn in particular to start glucosamine b/c he has "weak ACL's" which were noticed with the way he walks. Vet believes his knee cap sometimes pops out and over time as he ages he may have to undergo surgery. So, to strengthen his joints, he's on the glucosamine/chondroitin supplement (1 a day also). Finn's on it more for prevention so i cannot really tell if it's working for him at this point. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will help him in the long run.

    oh im so glad tank is going to be ok. thats such good news and the problems seem to be fixable so that is good as well. just a thought though as sarah has a limp from a torn acl and she is doing really good on the wild alaskan salmon oil. not saying dont use joint meds from vet just maybe you can add the salmon oil to for extra help. hugs from sarah and me

    So glad it was a relatively simple thing and not a torn ACL. Our bully babies certainly know how to give us grey hair!!!
