Arthritis

My miniature poodle (11 lbs) has arthritis in his hips. Last night it was so bad he cried for awhile. A heating pad helped. His vet has him on 81mg aspirin and cosequin, but it seems they aren't working.

Does anybody have other methods? He's 8, almost 9 years old.

Vet prescribed Prednisone 0.5mg for a miniature dachshund for 1 week, but made my dog too hyper.

After that, Curcumin & Boswellia doggie chews (Turmeric & Frankincense, but I forgot the name). Worked for my dog before he died.

Since it worked so well for my Dog's OA pain, I searched online & found the same supplement combo for humans.
I found it at Amazon called "Curamin" with BC 95 standardized Curcumin & Boswellia, works great for OA pain.

For a frugal version~
Swanson's Vitamins online has a human combo of: "Curcumin & Boswellia" for $8.53.
I wonder if a partial capsule could be sprinkled on food?

Ive chopped up human Glucosamine/ Chondrotian pills for my dogs when we lived up north and the cold seemed to bother them. I think I figured the human dose was based on a 135 pound person and chopped up the pills accordingly.

Fish oil is another good supplement for joints. Use a pin to prick open a people pill and then give your baby a drop or two a day on a treat.

Our smallest is on Metacam for acute pain due to a luxating patella issue which sometimes becomes a torn cruciate ligament issue. Generally he doesnt need the Metacam for more than 3 days straight however I researched when I first got the med and it seemed like long term use was OK as well. This would need to be prescribed by a vet.

And, also, if the dog is overweight, start reducing their kibble/ treats. I found mine did better on less, full fat food rather than more of the reduced fat kibble. They seem happier with the real stuff.

I'm getting him to the vet Friday. He woke me up last night crying, it was heartbreaking. I can't stand to see him in pain.

No, he's just about 11 lbs, perfect for his breed.
