My old Benson had arthritus from the age of two and he was on rymadyl most of his life, as long as it`s under regular review from the vet it's okay, we also gave him chondroitin and glucosamine (we got it from holland and barretts and checked the correct dose with the vet) I saw a marked improvment in him on it, it really helped him, it took about 3 weeks to show the improvements, so I'm a big advocate of chondroitin/glucosamine

How often did you have Benny reviewed by his vet Pauline??....I don't know if my son's vet set up any review dates for Sunny, think I'll have him checked by my vet tho'...think the last time he saw his vet was about May time...definately going to get the glucosamine & chondroitin...took that for myself a few years ago, but it was too late for me .....thanks for the advice Pauline.....Pam Maya & Scoobie

Benny was checked out every time we had to get more rymadly for him, which was every two to three months, the vet would have him on a low dose of rymadyl in the warmer weather and that would give him room to have a higher dose in the winter when his arthritis was worse, he would check his weight and the way he was walking and just basically check him out, it was very reassuring and the vet would tell us to bring Benny in whenever we wanted to, I had a great vet who really knew Benny and when Benny had his bone cancer he stopped the rymadyl and put him on metacam (I think that`s how it's spelt ) because it`s a bit more of a "gentle" arthritis drug, it`s a liquid and some dogs find it easier to take. I think if you keep an eye on the dogs movements and notice any stiffness or slowing down, you can really get a handle on arthritis and get it under control, it just takes a little time So I would say that Benny was reviewed about every 2 to 3 months
