With the nights getting colder and winter just around the corner, I know that Lilly will be a little bit stiffer and slower because of her arthritis. Lilly is now 12 years old and has suffered from arthritis, degenerative joint disease, for most of her life. Like other dogs, cats and people that suffer from arthritis, her symptoms are worse during cold weather.
Over the last six months Lilly has been doing really well and we seem to be managing her arthritis better than ever. As prescribed by her vet, she is still having the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory tablet called Trocixil once a month and a course of Zydax injections once every six months. We have also gone back to using Sashas Blend, a natural non-steroidal powder supplement, on her food every day. These combined treatments seem to working brilliantly for Lilly and she seems to be happy and comfortable with barely any arthritic symptoms.
