Sadie is my daytime companion. My husband is Sadie’s favorite person at night when he gets home. Two weeks ago today we took Sadie to see the vet. Our dog was limping she somehow bad hurt herself Friday while turning around in the house.
Sadie has some pre-existing conditions epilepsy and hypothyroidism. So the vet recommended a few weekday rest and then see how she is. Not a surgical candidate. I have been doing my own research on the web.
Sadie is taking prednisone because of tumors in her lung. She also takes potassium bromide, phenobarbitol and soloxine. For the torn cruciate ligament she takes a pain med. I started to give her NuVet Plus which is vitamins and minerals and other supplements. I also give her 1200 mg. of fish oil got her essential fatty acids. Now I give her 1500 mg. tablet of Glucosamine chondrointin MSM. I want to start her on Nujoint Plus.
We purchased a Bottoms up leash to bet me take get out to do her stuff.
Now I am checking into physical therapy or rehabilitation for bet but I am not a medical professional. I love her and I want to help her the best way I can.
