R61---I googled (canine arthritis )and a wealth of advice came up. Check it out-one that I read said not to give any over- the- counter pain meds, without consulting a Vet.

Try a table spoon of cod liver oil in her food. A old guy who raised bird dogs told me to try it on my golden retriever. I add it to his food twice a month and the limp is gone. It worked . Maybe it will help your dog out too. Good luck.

15 years is a good life return the favor to her, you know what you need to do. A couple of us have had to do it this year but it was the the right thing to do for loyal companion. It is not easy and you will be emotional but ultimately the dog is no longer suffering. Sorry for being blunt but you need to hear it, childrens tylenol will releive the pain no adult dosages

anyone ever hear of bee stings relieving arthritus. I saw on the news a while back a guy use one bee sting to help his ankle recovery. he claimed it is good for arthritus too.im not saying to go do it to your dog but maybe research it a little and since your dog is in its last years it may be a suggestion worth looking into.

Are you sure it is arthritis and not something else? We had to put our dog down last Oct since she had a growth on her front shoulder. Turned out to be cancer. She was 11yrs. I hope it is just arthritis and the meds keep her comfortable.

Good Luck
