Anybully heard of the new arthritis med, GALLIPRANT ?

Poor Meaty had been limping and was recently diagnosed with arthritis in himz elbows, lower back, and one hip  :(

He's had six ADEQUAN injections which don't appear to have helped much.  Sophie had the injections about a year

and a half ago, and she hasn't limped since!   Yesterday, the doc started Meaty on this new med called GALLIPRANT...

I'm curious if anybully here is familar with it, and if it helped your baby(ies).  .......

...

Also, do any of you give your babies glucosamine / chondriotin supplements?   I was skeptical about them, but Sophie's been on them a while,

and we assume they're helping, since she doesn't limp anymore.  We started Meaty on them in November----someone told me they

take about six months to really kick in, so we'll see!   I WISH I'd started Meaty on them earlier----especially since he just

turned EIGHT in November.  

....

P.S....Amy, if you're reading this, there's a gal in our bulldog rescue group who has lots of horses, and she said

Adequan has helped them a lot  :-)

I haven't heard of it but...

we have all three of ours on Adequan and it's really helped.  Chester was on meloxicam for years for his back and he's completely off it now and just gets adequan once a month.

Haven't heard of that

but I do give Addison glucosamine supplements.  She gets Glyco Flex, one tablet a day now.  We got it from our vet.  We used to give it to our old guy, Chester, and I have to say, so far so good.  We have had success with it.
