Keeping Dry & Warm

Well my girls know what to do when the weather turns cold and wet.

Polly is now taking 100mg of Rimadyl very day to help with her Arthritis.  She certainly isn't limping as much on our walks.  When she has an 'off' day, I don't walk her so far.  Honey then goes out again just with me, as she's always up for a longer walk.

Hope you are ok.  Don't forget to hug your hounds.

  2. Awww - they look comfy and warm. Glad to hear the medicine is helping Polly's pain. Pumpkin has begun having hip issues and she is only 7. Stay warm and dry and give the girls a hug from me.

  4. Smart girls...curl up with a cute guy, & doze through the nasty weather. Love that they have a Pooh Bear. Our granddogs got some heat laser treatment and acupuncture for their arthritis, and it seemed to help. Not sure if that is available in the UK. DD swore it by for her guys. Have a good week, and hope the weather improves. TFS

  5. MaryH, The girls have a Winnie the Pooh each, although they just snuggle up to which ever one is in the bed they go in. There's also a Rudolph Reindeer in one bed that was Songs cuddle toy.

    I have a sonic pain device that I use on Polly and it helps. Certainly my vets don't do acupuncture or the laser, but a very big vets practice might. Mind you I dread to think what it would cost.

    You have a good week as well.

    1. Sue, DD had a vet (who is also a friend) come to the house to treat the older (late) grey & the doxy. They did seem to move a bit easier after the treatments, but not sure how long the good results lasted. I never dared to ask what the charges were, or if the insurance she had on them, covered the treatment. Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but DD would go without herself to get something the hounds needed. As much as I understand that, sometimes we get a little aggravated with her about this, especially since we felt the older fella should have been let go. As he was, when she could handle it. Seems to be doing ok about it, but we also don't talk about him much either. Hugs

  8. MaryH, It definitely helps if you know a vet personally:) I have insurance, but it only covers accident and injury, so Arthritis isn't covered.

    It is always so hard to let them go, but in the end it's the love you have for them that helps you make that decision.
