"I have not heard about infra-red beds for dogs. The point of the cold laser treatments is to reduce inflammation in the affected joints. "

"If he's not showing any signs of pain, chances are it's not a disc issue. Even the great stoic JD showed pain when he first ruptured a disc. Xrays will usually show a lot of the changes associated with arthritis. "

Likely arthritis in 12 year old Goldendoodle- advice?

Our nearly 12 year-old Goldendoodle girl Willow is slowing way down from what we believe to be arthritis. She will still go out for walks with our 8 month old puppy with her beautiful big smile, and we just slow our pace so she's comfortable. I would like her to be a bit more comfortable and not have so much trouble getting up from laying down if we can. It seems to be mostly impacting her hindquarters. Other perhaps relevant info...

"We found this to be true for Charlie also.  We need to keep him on the VSL#3 and LID kibble longer than you might with a dog who has an illness  and meds then gets over it - these guys with sensitive tummies, need special handling. …"
