My 8 year old poodle mix has been diagnosed w/arthritis in his lower back. We are away from our vet and was wondering what is the most effective treatment for him and our aging 12 year old shepherd mix. Thank you.
Some vets use anti-inflammatory medications such as Rimadyl or Metacam. Others start out with all natural products such as glucosamine and some give both. Dogs in extreme discomfort may need corticosteroids. Management depends on your pets condition. vetcare
