best advice take her to a vet, theres always going to be conflicting advice about everything a vet would know best.

I am not sure if the the joint supplements will help. I agree with visit the vet. They do have highly effective pain killers. We had a Lab that only was able to live to be 15 due to pain killers from the vet.

Hi Rederic,
First of all well come to this forum and your pet is so old. My suggestion is please go to nearest vet as soon as possible then updated me please.

Thanks !

I may suggest that you give vitamins to your dogs specially when your dog is listless.

I've seen this in one dog i had at age 8. The vet said to bring her in as that behavior is not normal. Give your vet a call at least

Yes no maybe so. Depends on what is causing the pain. I have seen dogs come in and were given aspirin with glucosamine and were eventually weaned off aspirin. Glucosamine helps restore synovial fluid in certain joints (of course not all joints have it either.) Aspirin carries the horrible side effect of stomach ulcers so yeah I'd get her checked out.

It's never too late to start her on joint med. You will likely see a difference fairly quickly. Here's a tip: Use human joint meds. You'll pay 1/4 the price and get the same results. I've been doing it for years. Plus, sometimes it's more potent.

I would give her glucosamine/chondroitin but even more importantly I have discovered enzymes, and in particular WOBENZYM N, which you can get at health food stores. It is amazing stuff... it's basically a natural anti-inflammatory, and it works. Try it!

It's never too late to start giving medications but it is best to consult a vet first before giving any medications. There are also a lot of useful stuffs you can resort to on the internet. I don't know if it's allowed to link here but I won't do it anyway as I don't wanna be banned. Your dog is quite old, he/she needs all the love, attention and care he/she could get from you and probably from the people around you. Take care!
