Radiographs if done under sedation or anaesthesia can cost between one and two thousand rand and the medication, becaus it is life-long does add up. The pricing will depend on where you are - more expensive in the city and cheaper in rural areas.

I have an 11 year old German Shephard who is riddeled with Arthritis. I never had exrays done, as the vet said it was not necessary. Last year she was really batteling, and the vet told us that she would not survive until Christmas. I went onto the internet and researched medications for Arthritis. I found a website called vetsproductsonline dot co dot za. They sell a homeopathic products called Eco-Arth (R 230 for a bottle which lasts me 1,5 months ) which I bought for Alice. It has worked wonders. It is a liquid which I squirt into her mouth twice a day. SHe is running and playing with my other dogs. And enjoyed Christmas !!
At the moment she is on Rimadyl (which I get from the vet) and the Eco-Arth, and she is more energetic than me.
Maybe you can give it a try for your dog and see if it helps !!

This is really something you have to ask your vet. If I recall, x-rays can cost between R600 & R800. I don't think anyone can answer about the cost of medication - it depends on how bad the arthritis is and what medication your vet prescribes and how much the dog needs to take.
