Hmm, I haven't heard of NEM before. I definitely am going to check that out,as well as the polyglycans. I also was reading about Cetyl M too. So many things! I could go broke trying them all.
Well he has started to have his very slight limp on the left rear which is the worse of his hips and his knee is bad on that side too. It is weird, because he gets super excited to go on his walk does relatively ok but has that limp. We don't go too far even though he wants to. We were going farther, but this week has been a little bad because of the rain and damp weather. Overall, Midnight acts like a younger dog in mind and attitude. He chases the cat across the apartment and gets excited for dinner and runs and plays right before that. Then again I'll see him stiff first thing in the morning and a little slower to get up from lying down sometimes and I know that he is in at least a little discomfort. He goes for walks and is stiff in the beginning but loosens up and is a little better by the end, but he gets tired alot faster.
I just wish I could get a better handle on his pain management. He is a different dog after the 5th injection of adequan and by the 8th he is like he was 5-6 years ago. then slowly he starts to regress and by month 4-5 he is pretty bad even with adequan injections every 10 days. I redo the loading dose and boom all better. I almost want to do the loading dose all the time but again that is pricy and who knows what it would do healthwise.
