She went to the vet today and our diagnosis is arthritis. She is probably about 10, maybe even a little older. So she is on an anti inflammatory for a week and if that helps they will prescribe a long term med for her. Some days she has a really bad limp and other days hardly at all. Oh and at feeding time it's amazing how she can run around with no limp. For a few days she wanted to do nothing but go out to potty and back to her pillow or bed now she is back to being my little shadow again so I think it is some better than it was.
Hope the meds work well.

Aw Daisy, I hope she feels better soon and that the mess help. Have you consider giving her joint supplements? You won't see results the next day because as I was explained is an accumulative effect. My Papaya is a very active pug and takes Nature's Farmacy Phyto-Flex. Also, I make him a Turmeric Golden Paste as a supplement, is an antiflamatory among other things. Here's the recipe, except that it should be 1/3 cup of coconut oil instead of 1/4 cup (Turmeric Helps Prevent Cancer and Arthritis in Pets Recipe) Hope it helps.

Maybe something natural is out there - like the turmeric. Glad she's feeling better.

Praying for the meds to give her some relief.
We never touch people so lightly that we don't leave a trace.
I hope the med's help and Daisy feels better soon.

Poor Daisy, I hope the meds work out for her.
My Charlie Bob had some arthritis and you could tell it was bothering him. He was on a shot of Adiquan once a month, that seemed to help, but what really worked for him was an over the counter supplement by Vet IQ. They are fairly inexpensive and you can find them at WalMart and Costco carries them too. Not saying they will work for your Daisy, but it's worth a shot. Within a couple of days Charlie was prancing around like a puppy again.

That was Sienna's issue for a limp, too. Cosequin DS works well.
