I am looking for natural arthritis remedies for a 10 year old chihuahua. I read somewhere that blackstrap molasses works wonders for arthritis pain in dogs. I also heard of extra virgin coconut oil and apple cider vinegar. I am really tempted to mix all these and give it a try. Has anyone tried these? or are there any other natural remedies? My dog has been on metacam but it doesn't work very well, I can tell she is still in pain. My dad keeps telling us to just put her to sleep so she can rest and not be in pain anymore. I want to do everything I can for her before even considering that. Am I wrong? What is her quality of life gonna be now that she has arthritis? Please help!!
Have you talked to your vet. about glucosamine supplements? Or adequan injections? The adequan injection is pretty much just the injectable form of glucosamine. You might consider asking them, it can sometimes help a lot.
