The Pupsters thought they had their own tent but we all slept in my SUV. . .glad we did cause Sid went ballistic when he heard a bear come into the campground. . . .whata dog!!!
Please let me know if you see any improvement. Here's hoping!!
There are other HA's out there. Timmy started with "Trixsyn" which is a lighter molecular weight, but we had to use it twice a day and more of it. Cost was about the same, but I opted for less and less often.
She also mentioned that at this stage (managable) she wouldn't recommend any surgery. She is a proponent of stem cell injections. (Much less invasive and very good results). Company is called VetStem (down in San Diego, CA). What I like about her, (Dr. Sarah Green in Arcata, CA) is that she is progressive in her approach, and really listens to my concerns and babbling.
Before I tried the HA, I was contemplating surgery now, to avoid further deterioration of the joint which would mean pain, etc. Knowing what the future holds, I wanted surgery while he was still healthy and younger, since the joints hold up for many years (10, I believe), instead of waiting until he is severely affected by the degenerating joint. She calmed me down and said that she was open to continuing that conversation, but that it was way too early. Give her a chance to work with us using the HA, accupuncture, and if there was no improvement, then consider further drastic measures.
My mainstream friends think I've gone over the edge, but if it helps him stay active, I'll do it. Timmy lives for every day adventures, ball chasing and helping any way he can.
Give Gus some belly rubs and butt scritches from both of us and keep us informed.
After I started using it, I discovered that Lab and GSD forums and networks have been using the stuff for a couple of years.
Hope that Gus is doing well and enjoying life as only a corgi can.
