Joe, the rescue, has been on his Glucosamine injections (one a week) for 2 weeks. He is not taking any other joint supplement at this time. We can tell a difference about 2 days after his injection and it lasts for 2-3 days. He has actually kicked up a bit playing with Hootie and does a LITTLE trotting.
I believe we need to add an additional supplement that includes MSM, HA, etc. but finding one I can afford AND that actually works along with the injections is going to be the key.
This guy is amazing. He has the kindest heart and it kills me to know what he's been though. You can see in the picture with my girls that he loves attention and he sure gets a lot of it.
I hope we can gain him more relief with the addition of some added supplements and a bit more shoe work. I also think that if I can get a chiropractor out here he could gain some relief. He holds that leg up so much I'm sure his hocks bother him. We'll see.
