Hello fellow animal lovers! Hoping for some guidance from the members here.
I have a 12 year old Boston Terrier who is becoming increasingly stiff and is having more difficulty with mobility. He is able to get up and down the stairs, but has to be lifted onto the bed and we have a step to assist him in getting up to the sofa. I have been giving him glucasamine with no improvement (it has been over 3 months since we started).
I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for supplements or OTC treatments. The last time he was at the vet it wasn't this bad and I wasn't interested medicating him until it was absolutely necessary. I feel that time has come. At this point I just want him to live out the rest of his life as comfortably and happy as he can. I will be calling the vet Monday to see what she thinks, but I would like to know what has worked for others as well.
He has always been a healthy weight and aside from being completely deaf (which doesn't seem to bother him) he is in very good shape for his age.
TIA for any tips!
