Re: Thunders Hips :-(
You really want to limit the running and jumping. I know it's hard because he is a pup but I would keep that to a minimum.
As for the supplements--they can mean the difference between lots of pain and severely limited mobility and very little pain and good mobility. My first dog was diagnosed with HD 20 years ago. There weren't nearly as many options available for supplements and I had surgery done at 1 year and then again at 5 years. I wish I had had available then what I have available now.
My current dog, Rafi, is on supplements and NO ONE can tell that he has joint problems. When I adopted him it was obvious. That is because of the supplements. They are very, very important.
And you need to get Ester C and not just vitamin C and you want to work slowly up to 2000 mg per day.
The joint supplement should have glucosamine, chondroition AND MSM. I give double the recommended maintenance dose.
