Has anyone used it for arthritis in their dog? Someone from Oz on my hip replacement diary uses it and swears by it, just wondered if anyone else has.

I'm going to order some anyway just to see. Sorry for all the questions and two separate threads but thought this would get over looked in the other one. ;)

Thanks sled dog :) the vet I saw today is Australian and he said he hasn't heard of it for arthritis but it's good for skin complaints. The site the other member linked to me shows it to be for many things, including inflammation caused by arthritis, so I'm going to give it a try for Kali - hopefully keep her off of Metacam. ;)

Deffinately worth a try, it you can find something natural to help so much the better, dont like using NSAIDs especially long term unless you really have too.

Emu oil seems to be somewhat superseded by Elmore Oil, in Oz, these days. My arthritic patients absolutely SWEAR by the stuff. I've never heard so many people rave about any product as much as they rave about this.

I've never used it myself and I've no experience of anyone using it on an animal but for human use I'd definitely recommend it just on anecdotal evidence.
