This sounds like canine arthritis, which is likely a result of being hit by a car.

There are many natural nutrients including various combinations of Glucosamine, MSM, Hyaluronic acid, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin C and Chondroitan sulfate available through your vet, online and at retail which should be very effective to relieve your dogs achy joints.

Should you want to follow up with me, that would be fine.
