I have been giving Ginger Glucosamine/Chodroitin supplements for a while now for what I thought was arthritis. Even her vet diagnosed her with a touch of arthritis. Lately, though, she has been having a lot of trouble the few times a day she does get out of bed. From all the reading I've done, I'm pretty convinced that she has hip dysplasia. She is VERY reluctant to get out of bed, and she has to make several attempts to stand on her hind legs. Have any of you dealt with this before? Any information is appreciated!

Well, after a good conversation with Ginger's vet of four years, she is still convinced that it is arthritis, sooooo...... We are going to try increasing her glucosamine/chondroitin supplement dosage, exercising at least twice a day, and going on a DIET!! (Ginger is four pounds overweight). I took her for a short walk today, and after a few minutes, she was pulling me along! Time will tell, so hopefully these measures will ger her back up and around more.
