UPDATE June 18, 2007: Cosequin did work wonders for our lab, but he also has Degenerative Myelopathy which was missed due to the hip dysplasia. We had never heard of this disease and didn't know the signs or symptoms to watch for. Please, if your dog is on a joint therapy product, search for Degenerative Myelopathy on the internet and familiarize yourself with the symptoms. As the disease progresses without treatment, your dog's chance for recovery and/or stabilization become less and less. The University of Florida has a lot of information on their website regarding this disease and a video depicting dogs in various stages of this disease.
After suffering repeated bouts of lameness in one/occasionally both hind knees caused by chasing critters in the back yard, our vet recommended that we take our 4 year old dog to see an orthopedic veterinary surgeon. Just like the old saw - to a man with a hammer everything looks like a nail - to a veterinary surgeon....
Oh yeah... Before he even examined the dog he was telling us all about the torn cranial cruciate ligaments and the Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO), which to me looks about as rough as a full knee replacement. The more I questioned him about the procedure, the more obvious it became that it was: A) Too radical for my dog B) At about $2800 per knee, much too expensive unless there was NO other option. Don't get me wrong, we love our dog and he gets whatever he needs but this procedure in addition to cost required lengthly confinement and rehab. I just couldn't see how it would work.
About this time I asked if he shouldn't examine the dog first. A quick wiggle of the hind leg and he was convinced that was the problem. He would have to anesthetize to fully confirm the diagnosis but he was certain that we were dealing with torn cruciate ligaments. If we wanted he could do the surgery while the dog was out. Nice.... but no thanks.
After 30 minutes or so he comes back and tells us that the ligament is partially torn so he has given our dog a shot of cortisone in the joint. " Might help but I still think he will need surgery".
Next day he is getting around without much of a limp. This is probably just the temporary anti-inflammatory effect of the shot. A week or two latter we return to our regular vet for one of the annual vaccinations.Read more ›
purchase this again. However, it may work for other dogs. I don't know.
I cannot prove the tablet caused the vomiting but it is high on the list of possible reasons.
I had the vet look at the listed ingredients and he could not see anything that might have caused the aggressive behavior...but he did become aggressive and it stopped once I discontinued the tablets.
