Keeping her active is good, but maybe cut back on the running. Of course, swimming is the best thing. I have a couple of resources for underwater treadmills in my area, also, but that costs about $40 for a half hour. I used to take my girl to one of those and it helped a lot.

My current dog has arthritis, but she's extremely active and gets sore like yours. I find the usual supplements help a lot. I had gotten lazy and stopped giving them to her, and just recently started up again.

My boy who died, had HD and still wanted to chase that ball! The vet gave me pain killers to use when he had a really bad day. But I know what you mean. Hard to keep those dogs down.
