Re: Kidneys, arthritis, paw problem...
Thanks Laurie for taking the time to answer my questions
I forgot to mention that I do give her treats that have glucosamine and chondroitin in them daily. I tried giving her salmon oil, but she wouldn't touch the stuff. I'm very slowly getting her to tolerate Missing Link in her daily food, which should help add some omega-3 to her diet.
I have had horrible knee and foot problems since I was 16 years old. I've had multiple surgeries myself, so I think that's why it just kills me to see her act like she's having a hard time... I've been there myself many times!!!
I'll keep trying for a urine sample, and try to find an orthopedic vet around here who would be willing to take a look at her x-rays. Our vet did send the x-rays out to a veterinary radiologist, who concurred with what my vet told me. I just want my Fuzzy to be happy, she is such a huge part of my life.
