The wonders of Cartrophen

    About 3 months ago I was having a chat with a lady about her old Lab suffering from arthritis, I suggested she tried Cartrophen.
    She had the first course which seemed to help initially but wore off quite quickly, the dog was at a stage of not lifting his legs and struggling behind his owner, even though she was walking slowly.
    Her vet had said that they would give the other injections at 3 monthly intervals, but when I saw her I informed her that she could have them monthly if she felt it was needed.
    Well. she went straight back and got another injection, today I met them and the dog is up on his toes, bouncing along in front of his owner :thumbup:
    The vets and drug company seem to be telling people that you will see improvement after 2-3 weeks, in my case it was 6 weeks and in her case it was really 2 months and after the top up injection.
    If your dog suffers from arthritis, this is well worth a try, but please give it 3 months trial before you assume it hasn't worked

    Thanks for that Rona as I am thinking about having Quiver injected. She's OKish at the moment but becoming stiff in her hips and hind legs. She's over 12.1/2 years old now.

    Zak is on a four week course, as a prevettive, I guess, as he doesn't appear to be in pain yet. Hopefullywith this and supplements, he won't need an op.
