Ive noticed when Gucci gets up from sleeping she limps a little and her front legs seem stiff for a few moments. She is fine after she has taken a few steps and still runs about in the park with Marni. Do you think I need to get her some Glucosamine liquid or anthing else. She is 6 and a half years old. Thanks

The first thing to do is get her checked out by the vet as there are a number of reasons that she could have these symptoms. It could be something that needs to be treated sooner rather than later. The vet would also be able to advise you on supplements.

Hi ...sounds like Gucci has the beginings of the dreaded Arthiritis ...best thing is to take her to the vets & they will be able to confirm it ....then they will give you all the advice & medication that is needed....if you look on the post next to yours about herbal pain relief, you might pick up some sound advice there, especially about the vets bed link, which I'm going to get for my son's dog....it's better to get it sorted out in the early days tho'....hope all goes well for Gucci....bless her .....Pam Maya & Scoobie

You could always hear what the vet says and get her meds online and save a small fortune. Where is Dee, she has the remedies.......
You could always pm Dee.

Thanks for replies. She is now taking Glucosamine supplement and seems better after just a week. She might have played a bit too rough with Marni : )
