• My dog seems to have a sore leg. She walks on it and everything but limps a little and doesn’t play anymore. I just took her to the vet the other day and they said she looked fine. They said she has arthritis but everything else looked normal. Is there anything I can do to help ease her doscomfort?

    Hi Lyndsee,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There are some medications or supplements that can be used to help with discomfort from arthritis. The one that will work best and be the safest for her will depend on a few different things including her age, breed, weight, and overall health. Your vet knows your pet and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
