My 10 year old lurcher was injured a few years ago in a bad fall. She has damaged her neck, which, along with fused vertebrae there is neurological damage from the spine being compressed. She has arthritis now, not only in the neck but also her shoulder and hip. Basically she's a mess. I've worked with her over the years with various treatments but now she's getting to the point where the pain seems to be constant and I'm looking at putting her on meds. This is something I've resisted because of the side effects they can cause when used over a long period. Can anyone offer me some input on different pain meds they've used and how the dog has tolerated them? Thanks.
