Guest suzanne Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 Kelsis was lure coursing the Sunday before last and his gait just changed suddenly and he came off the field stiff and sore. He has slight swelling on one foot and bruising on his inner thigh. He is not sore or complaining however (he really gives out when he wants to). anyway, the vet has diagnosed spinal and hip arthritis :( No more lure coursing from here on in and a life of leisure from now. I am so sad for him as he lives to run. He received a cartophen injection and will get 3 more over the next three weeks. I have always fed all my dogs salmon oil and glucosamine but am now looking for a really wonderful quality joint/glucosamine supplement if anyone can recommend one. I am so disappointed My poor boy. I just hope it won't get worse, he is only 8.5 and before that Sunday never had a moment's stiffness. It's hard to believe. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
