Glad she's doing so well!!!
If you need tramadol, see if your vet will give you the RX to fill at a human pharmacy--it's a human generic that's on the "super cheap" lists of many pharmacies. You can price it at Prices, Coupons and Information - GoodRx -- enter your zip, the name of the drug and does, and it tells you the local pharmacy with the lowest price. It should be under $10 for a 30 day supply.

Great suggestions, I used to do those leg exercises for my paralyzed cat. I try to let Bora go her own pace as far as losing weight. Sometimes I need to get her up to walk, sometimes I need to make her stop and rest. Varies day to day but I make sure not to let her overdo it. More than anything I think the switch to a good food is helping with the weight. I toss the ball to her while she's laying down and we wrestle and play that way, just something to get her moving without stressing her joints. I'm constantly brushing and grooming her, massaging as I go, helps with circulation. There are still Bora balls floating around inside and out. So. Much. Fur!
We will be moving tomorrow and I will have no internet or phone for a while. I'll update as soon as I can.

this "Took orange cones (large ones), and cut holes in them to run pvc pipe through so the dog has to left the leg in the air to get over the pvc and not just move the leg forward. Kinda hard to explain in words. " sounds like cavelletti for canines https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNQTkUtfoHc
This dog looks like an amazing character , just love the expression on her face .
Be careful that you don't loose too much weight too quickly as waste stored in fat will be dumped back to circulate in her system till her liver can detox , cleanse.
MSM is excellent for her.
Give her some passive range of motion exercises . While laying on her side , compress her leg , extend her leg. This helps the leg, stabilizes the knee , and stretches muscles over her croup and back.
she's a beauty.

|dawnandjr||When she has lost more weight and can get around better, there is an exercise that might help build those muscles up in her back legs. She needs to start lifting her legs up. This is done while walking. My friend had to do this for one of her dogs. She made an obsticle course if you will. Took orange cones (large ones), and cut holes in them to run pvc pipe through so the dog has to left the leg in the air to get over the pvc and not just move the leg forward.
