Earlier this month Elvis went lame in his left front leg. Got the vet out to have a look at him and after trotting him back and forth for 10 to 15 minutes and then having a nerve block done on his fetlock he was still in pain and the vet thought Elvis may have a sore knee or shoulder and put Elvis on bute. Elvis was still not right so we got another vet to see him. This vet got me to trot Elvis away once and then flexed the knee on the front left. He said the knee was sore and Elvis was putting weight on rear legs so he also had pelvis and lower back pain. We booked Elvis to have x-rays done of the knee, the results were that the fluid and cartilage wasn't too back but unfortunately the bones had arthritic fractures. Elvis was injected in the middle and lower knee joint with Gentam, Kenacort and Xylaze. I know there is no cure for arthritis. We are going to pick up Pentosan next week to try and hold onto the fluid and cartilage as long as possible. My question is are there any feed changes or supplement that will slow down the bone chips, as these seem to be causing him the pain. Sorry about the long story.
