    My dog has been recently diagnosed with suppurative sterile arthritis which is different to septic arthritis. I know very little about it and am just looking to see if anyone knows about or if you have any recommendations as to where I can find some more information.
    Thanks, Laura.

    Hi, have not heard of that specific type but my five year old westie has Immune-mediated Polyarthritis which is a a type of auto-immune arthritis. I had no idea this existed until she was diagnosed, and we've never met another dog with it.

    What has your vet said about it? For us treatment is steroids to suppress inflammation and immune system.

    Hi,

    My dogs treatment is also steroids, a 3 week course. How are the steroids working for your dog?
