Elbow arthritis is a very common condition in dogs and often hard to manage.
A recent post on Facebook
SURVEYCAM is regularly approached by owners of dogs with elbow arthritis for further advice on how to manage the…
Stimulated some good discussion.
I’m personally interested in people’s results from intra-articular interventions such as stem cells, PRP, HA, Arthramid etc.
I’ve seen good effect in an end stage elbow that had arthramid injected, but it did take some time to take effect. But that’s not a significant study size!!
Anyone else been using these methods?
I realise this is an old post but my 8 (nearly 9) year old lab is having Arthramid in his right elbow in 10 days time. It’s been tricky finding information on it so I am setting up a blog to give a warts and all account of our experience with it. I’ll share a link when it’s up.
Are all dogs suitable for Arthramid and is it only available via a specialist vet or could I talk to my own vet about the procedure? I have a 13 year old Lab with severe hip arthritis who is unable to take much in the way of NSAIDs so looking for other options as she is not ready give up……first at the door when it is walk time, but is unable to walk far due to pain.
Thanks in advance.
I think I’ve emailed you before about Arthramid Greg – I’ve been interested for a while in seeing how it works for dogs.
Unfortunately yesterday Luna was found to have lung and bone cancer on a CT scan – to help with her quality of life she had Arthramid injections in both elbows whilst under GA.
This evening she has been bouncing around like a 9 month old slightly more than normal and this is the day after a GA and the disturbance to her body caused by scans and injections yesterday. I thought life was going to slow down for her from now on but if she gets to run around for a while first then thank you Nupsala and Arthramid!
