kbella999 Thanks for the heads up on the interval between injections. I'll ask the vet about that. Maybe I should start out at every two weeks with her.

rocky_oana Hy! I am sorry for barging in like this...I am not a member of your forum, but I have an 11 year old german shepard with arthritis. He took Aplazyl at the beginning of this year, but he started having pain in his back legs a few weeks ago. We gave him some noninflammatory medicine, but a week ago his pain got back and we put him on Aplazyl again. Yesterday he barely walked up the stairs and has difficulty in walking in the house. What do you suggest? We haven't made any x-rays on his legs...Please give me some advice because I can't stand knowing he is suffering like that...Thank you!

Thanks. She is getting it twice a week now. I wasn't sure it would help her so I am really happy to see improvement.

Rusti update - hip dysplasia

Rusti will be getting her 6th Adequan injection today and I am super happy to say that there has been a huge improvement this last week. She will get 3 more injections (all have been in the muscle by the vet so far), then we go to maintenance mode at 1 a month. I plan on giving her the monthly injections myself (under the skin).
