Lucille Brookfield, Connecticut 7/24/2014 9:32:16 AM I have had this breed for the past 30 years. A good site for health information is http://drjwv.com/wp/. Dr. Vidt specializes in Shar Pei illness. In order to help prevent swollen hock Shar Pei need to be on Colcrys, a human medication, which is supposed to alleviate and/or lessen attacks. Go to Dr. Vidt's site for more information.
