Lame Lab
I have a 5 year old yellow lab who we adopted 2 years ago.  She came to us with Lyme's Disease which we took care of but being an active dog is always lame to the point she has problems getting up and down.  We've had her x-rayed but found nothing.  Is there medication out there which could help her short of an MRI and exploratory surgery?

I can't imagine that any exploratory surgery would reveal anything to be treated where lameness is concerned.  Lyme disease can cause long-term joint problems even after treatment, so ask your vet if any medications like rimadyl or deramaxx may help with the pain and lameness.  There are supplements available at your pet store for arthritis that will probably help over time.  They contain chondroitin, glucosamine and MSM.  You won't see an instant result, but over time they help prevent damage to cartilage in the joints.
