At the dog Show we went to last week my beautiful boy, Leo, was pushed into fourth place by Fifi, then Buffie and our friend's Lola. He has been suffereing from a knee injury and his movement is not good most of the time.
Frank suggested getting a Bioflow collar for him and as there was a lady selling them at the show we decided to try one. They are very expensive at £35, but if it helps it will be worth it, there is a 90 day trial period.
I've also started giving him Glucosamine with Chondroitin, that's supposed to be good at repairing cartiledge and lubricating joints.
We went to our first Ringcraft class on Thursday, one has just started in our area. Most of the people that went just want socialisation and basic training for their dogs, and most were very large and unruly. I hope they improve over the weeks. We did a bit of ringcraft and Leo was limping a lot, we were introduced to a girl who is an animal chiropracter, she was kind enough to examine Leo and said that on of his vertebra was misaligned, so she put it back for him. She said that she would have a look at him next week.
I am thinking that Hydrotherapy might help a bit, so I'll get in touch with the vet to see if there's a pool nearby.
