re: Veterinarians of the OT - Arthritis in front leg knees of small dogs
Took her to the vet today. She thinks her is turning out her front joints in compensation of back problems. The vet said give her cosequin, and don’t let her jump up and down from the couch. Back problems are common in Shih Tsu

Who is your vet? Where you given any other options? She has disks and spinal problems. Did you have X-rays taken?

So, basically glucosamine + chondroitin. You can find it at Dollar General.

Dutchtown hospital. The vet said we could do X-rays or wait and just do the treatment for now. She said my dog didn’t seem to be in pain when she checked her out. If it is back problems (most likely it is), we caught it very early.
