Tucker has Arthritus

Saturday Glenda took Tucker to the vet to get his rabies shot so we could get his license. The vet gave him a well dog exam too. He noticed that there was a few places where he was sensitive to presure so he had Tuck come in this morning for an x-ray. Well the results are back and he has arthritus in his back.
This actually explains a lot of stuff. He has been reluctant to jump on an off of things lately and he also has been taking breaks on walks. Looks like it was because his back hurts. The x-ray also found a small piece of metal in his stomach. It looks like it is on its way out the back door so we will need to watch to make sure it comes out. Hopefully we can get his arthritus under control and he will be back to his old self.

We are going to try different treatments before the Deramaxx or Rymadryl(sp?) because of the problems thay can couse. We used Deramaxx with or last two dogs because nothing else seamed to work. Jasmine was 17 when she went ot the bridge and without the Deramaxx she shouldn't squat or use all 4 legs when she walked.

We havn't see the metal come out yet as he has only pooped once since the appointment (that we know of). Glenda gets the fun task of going thru his poop looking.
My wife ordered the Recovery SA yesterday. We'll see how it works.
Well, Tucker has been on Recovery SA for several weeks now and he is doing great. We have slowly been increasing the dosage and are up to 1/2 tsp a day. He is dancing for dinner again. He also has been getting the zoomies. He still hesitates a little jumping, but he has always done that.

Thanks for all the advice.
