Hi All..

Wondering what age is good to start joint supplements-and what you all recommend. The vet I used to work for was big on Glucosamine. Kai is a year, he's not too young to start, right?

Also wondering the average costs you all incurred to get hip xrays done to check for displaysia. Trying to prepare to have this done once Malachi is finished with his HW treatment.

Thanks!

My office charges $150 for the single view with sedation and no pre-anesthesia testing. We have a traditional x-ray which does not give the crisp definition of a digital x-ray. I've called around and gotten quotes up around $300 too, although that's with a blood test and an ECG prior to sedation and usually on a digital machine. Then there's postage and the OFA submission cost ($40 for hips and elbows) and the agonizing two-to-three week wait for your results.

I'd say budget for $300 so you have a good margin.
