Spinal arthritis in GSD

Hi doc,

My GSD has been diagnosed with spinal arthritis. My vet says that the only thing to do to relieve the pain in my dog is to give him cortizone once it gets worse.

Do you have any advise for me? Is there anything to give him now to try and slow it down.

Dear Seahorse

You should start Tavan SP injections, rimdayl or similar drug and put him on mobiflex for life. This will slow and make thing a lot easier for him.
