Thanks, guys!

I can't believe she'll be 12 this summer -- seems like yesterday she was a scrawny little pup that was hell on wheels.

She's the resident "gimp", poor girl. She has really bad arthritis in her spine and her hips, and she's on all kinds of meds and supplements, but can still hardly use her left rear leg. We're back to the vet tomorrow to discuss surgery again. :(

Have you tried shark cartilage? It's the only thing that works for Wally. Currently he's on Vetri-Shark which is part of the Vetri-Science line. It's not cheap, but it works wonderfully. I'd definitely check it out (in addition to surgery if necessary, of course).

Thank you -- that's my favorite photo of her, too. She doesn't bark, she "woo-woo-woo"s.

Not sure about the surgery yet. We're researching about possible hip surgery, but I don't really want to put her under anesthesia at her age. Then again, if the meds can't/won't work, I don't want her in pain, either, so we'll see what the options are tomorrow.....

She's on MetaCam SID right now, along with Cosequin DS BID. The vet said we could add either Rimadyl or Deramaxx to the MetaCam, but I don't want her doped up and sleepy -- no quality of life, there.

I'll ask her about the Vetri-Shark tomorrow, too.

Great pictures. I really like the last one. Great closeup. I would never think she was 12 she looks so beautiful. What do you feed her to make her look so young? Hope she feels better. I have my older dog on Metacam and it seems to help his arthritis.

She's so sweet looking.

Funny, I thought she had a sort of 'soft' look about her in other pictures you posted of her. I've noticed older dogs get sort of a soft, gentle look about them---other than that, you'd never guess her age!!

Good luck with pain relief. That's the problem my first pitty had. He chugged along until 15 plus! :)

I don't think I've ever seen any pictures of your dogs, other than an avatar photo??? She's quite a beauty though, and I love the pictures :)
