Tania Abbotsford, BC 7/12/2010 9:40:38 PM Hi, my 8yr old female Akita was diagnosed with arthritis I am giving her one glucosomind sulfate tab in the a.m. and one in the p.m also a Tbsp. of a powder called Recovery, in her p.m. feeding. Xena is 110lbs but seems to be loosing weight and is in alot of pain. Is what I am giving her good? Also what kind of pain medicine may I give her. She sleeps on a mattress under our deck. We also have a 9yr old male Akita who seems to be in good health and very attached to Xena how do we deal with him if or when we need to put her down? I also have a 10 year old shih tzu who gets along good with Thor our male Akita. Please help I have spent alot of money at the vet and need some good advice. Thank you kindly from tania.
