Thank you very much. What we have learnt from our research is that every dog's case is different. Some respond well to metacam others don't such as your little girl. Hemp oil is interesting. Brenin is on Omega 3 supplement at the moment.

When talking to the vet , the cost of the medicine and blood tests. Came to over 31k , but wouldn't have it any other way 
Btw the insurance wouldn't cover him because they stated that labs have hip problems so it was a known problem ....bastards

Yes every 12 weeks ...it's because he was so young when started on metacalm...he was 16 weeks old when he started treatment and he died when he was 14.....
The other issue is that metacalm is given on the size of dog and even though we tried to keep him as thin as possible ..he was still around 50kg when fully grown ....we were put basing a large bottle of metacalm every 5 weeks through the vets 

 

Oracle - if you don't mind me asking were the regular blood tests to check on the liver/kidney functions as he was taking metacalm for so long?

What do you mean lie
itโ€™s impossible for a dog to survive without any hips. Surely you mean he had very poor hips rather that without any lol

What is it with you 1963????? Your profile confirms you are not a young kid who has not been around long enough to understand how to behave. Why would you call someone a liar when you are totally unaware of the facts. Seek clarification from Oracle by all mean but for goodness sake.......

First if all let me apologise to 1963 ..I didn't know you were /are a vet ....No iori had no ball joints , hence no hip bone on the upper thighs , his pelvis was also a huge mess with no bone in the appropriate areas to be able to install a new joint....Hence he had no hips on either side ...The x-rays were horrendous to look at but we had to try and build muscle and sinnew, so he used to go to a dog swimming tank so he could build the muscle up with low impact on the body ...
As he aged he was fine to about 8 years old and then we manage to get him to 14 ..by the end we had a harness and wheels

Bit feisty but lovelyโ€ฆ is that you or the dog ? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Can he hunt down dodgy posters with his highly attuned nose ? Is he bunker friendly? ( asking for a friend ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Milla's on flexi-joint plus and high strength hemp oil both have Omega oils in them. I have know idea if it's only one thing that works but she doesn't seem to have got any worse in the last 3/4yrs she has been on them. She has slowed down but she is 15 in June (fingers crossed) but continues to jump on her hind legs when food is about.
