“我的狗隻有4歲,但患有關節炎,有時很難站起來。 我們能做些什麼來幫助她變得更舒服,並令她快樂呢?

Q&A with Dr Pauline Taylor, BVM&S MACVSc

DR. PAULINE SAYS:

I’d like to know more about your dog’s arthritis before I would attempt to give you good advice. What has caused the problem, what has been done so far, what medications you give, foods, supplements, what is the breed, weight, home environment and so on? There are lots of things vets can advise to help arthritis once a diagnosis has been made and there are a lot of supportive things you can do +/or feed. At the end of the day it actually boils down to each individual dog and no one recipe fits all.

在我試圖給你很好的建議之前,我想更多地了解你的狗的關節炎。是什麼導致了這個問題?到目前為止做了什麼?你給了什麼藥物、食物、補充品、什麼品種、體重、家庭環境等等? 一旦做出診斷,有許多獸醫的建議可以幫助到關節炎,並且你可以做很多支援的事情或餵飼補充品,實際上沒有同一種配方適合所有狗的。
