Arthritis in dog
My dog has difficulty raising himself and is visibly stiff and limping. I am sure it is Arthritis. I am giving him a food supplement (Petflex) that I buy from a pet shop. It does not seem to help that much. Someone suggested that I rather I give him Arthritis tablets for humans. Is this a good idea. Can it have negative results.
