Hello, thank you for your advice. I have found Cosequin DS plus MSM but these work out at about £66 per month, which is more than I had anticipated for long term realistically. A UK vet friend has recommended Lamberts as a reliable supplement producer, so I wonder if you could advise which of these Glucosamine options would be suitable;
I would like her to have glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM if that’s possible.
The fish oil sounds great, especially as Bailey also has skin allergies and hot spots in summer. We have already had her on an Omega 3,6,9 supplement but these are about to run out. I had no idea these could also help with joint problems. I cant find either of your suggestions for sale in the UK, would any these Lamberts supps be suitable;
I can’t find Zeel online yet, but will ask my Mum to look in some UK health shops. Sadly no alternative therapy options available here, although we do take her swimming every day in summer which is 7 months here. She is definitely stiffer in winter ; ( I am hesitant to start her on pain killers as I don’t want her to become reliant on them. She took Meloxicam when she was diagnosed (we were living in Switzerland) and it caused blood in her stools. She was switched to Previcox which worked well, but isn’t available in Turkey.
I do have a prescription for Meloxicam which I give her one of on a longer walk day with Famodin (to help her tummy) but having already had bad experiences with this drug I don’t want to use it regularly. My vet here says Tramadol is available, but can be addictive? Not sure I translated that correctly?
