We have had our beautiful Paddy for a little over three months and we absolutely adore him, he is the sweetest boy. We were told when we adopted him that he had a racing injury to his right hock that had been fixed. We took him to the vet last week as he had developed quite a limp. After X-rays they told us that he has severe arthritis to his right hock probably because the injury was not treated properly. He also has slight problem with the hip joint on that leg. Walking is sometimes painful for him and we have been advised to keep walks short and only when he feels like it. Has anyone had similar problems? Any advice on how to make him more comfortable would be appreciated. We are giving him seraquin and salmon oil with his food to see if that helps at all and we have metacam to give him on days that it is very bad.
