my now 1yr old English chocolate lab was hit by a car when he was 10 months old.now it seems like any time he gets up from a laying down, his bones crack.also it keeps happening when he walks.the sound seems to be coming from all four legs ,wrists,elbows or whatever you call them on a dog.what could it be?
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.
