OUCH! Acti-Flex K9
website hurts my eyes - do you use the dog version Nancy?
How long does it last for two dogs?
Sorry, OP! I am curious about that, too!
I have 4 dogs with HD, 3 mild and one who was severe enough for the FHO (she is 47#, mix) and that worked well for her. Keeping those hind legs muscled really does help. I am lucky in that 2 of my 3 mild are BC mixes and have very muscular hind legs! My GSD...she likes to lounge.
I use a lot of the same things. I do Springtime Joint, and am going to start rotating joint supplements because I swear I saw something that supports that idea. I use fish oils, and am rotating those too. Have used the Springtime 3-6-9 and also have used their Fresh Factors.
When my GSD had an incident with her back she went to PT and did underwater treadmill, the deep ultrasound thing (I was totally jealous because I had done that when I hurt my knee and it is awesome) and laser. I did see an improvement, but the place is over an hour away and she hates to ride, so it's more like 2 days for us, according to the theory of relativity.
A local vet is starting acupuncture and I am wondering about that, but for her, I think just getting her to move more would help - and it's not a pain thing, she's always been mellow.
One thing I am always curious about and would love to try is the stem cell therapy. But afraid to do it because if it didn't work, ouch $.
