Well, after reading last week about another member who's senior was losing control over her back legs, I started getting very worried, so back to the vet we went on Thurs with my suspicions(DM) we had x-rays done this morning and some good news....Yes, my boy has moderate arthritis and it definitely is affecting that hip, you could really see it in the x-rays. Spine looks great tho, which was my concern..Sooo, we are starting him on Adequen injections and the Deramaxx will be tapered back some....My boy did soo well, no sedation was needed for the x-rays, the vet said he was really good :) So keeping fingers, toes & paws crossed that we may have found something that will relieve the arthritis some.....He also said that his weight is actually very good 69lbs, he just looks like he weighs a lot more, he said Samson reminded him of a Boxer he had as a kid, the stockier versions you used to see 20 or 30 yrs ago...

Great news that it is just mild arthritis right now and not something more serious. Hopefully the drug therapy will give him some relief!

:D Yeah for Sampson, my heart starting melting at first. We used to have a lab she went through the hips and arthritis battle, she gave us 13 great years.

Wahoooooo for Sampson
