I have a 13 yr old female German Shepherd and she is experienceing arthritis she is about 89 pounds. I give her Ibuprofen 200mg 3 times aday. And it is not doing any good. What would you recommend I give her for this problem. She is experienceing difficulty in getting up and when she walks it is very slow. My husband says we should have her put to sleep, But I feel we can try something else she eats good and still like to play with our 8 yr old Shepherd. Please help.
Ibuprofen can be dangerous to give to animals b/c of it's GI side effects. I recommend Rimadyl or Etogesic. Talk to your vet about it. vetcare
