  •  Thanks, will look it up. (7+ / 0-)

    And thanks for the discussion. Now I have to go spend some time with my 14 year old German Shepherd whose back legs no longer work so our time with him is short.

    •  My condolences on your dog. (7+ / 0-)

      I lost my first pet (my wife's cat Camo) just a few months back.

      "It sucks" doesn't even begin to cover it.

    •  Sorry to hear about your pal, I have two (6+ / 0-)

      pretty old guys myself and I can see the stiffness and such beginning.....

      There's a supplement called Missing Link that is the absolute bomb, a miracle in a gold foil bag.....

      It gave my best old girl ever 2 extra happy and full years and when I heard about this stuff, I was just about ready to put her down to stop the pain and suffering...

      The stuff is amazing..My miniDoxi was a rescue who had been badly abused and at 12 already had serious back and pain problems...plus she would have a seizure every month or so, not enough to medicate but enough to scare the hell out of everyone.....

      Since she has been taking this stuff, not only does she run around and tussle with the others again, she's only shown pain one time when just the other day she launched her silly ass off the bed and wrenched her back....She's already better and to top it all off, she hasn't had a seizure since she started taking the supplement......not one......

      Can you tell I'm sold on this stuff?

      I rec it for any of our old friends and they love it as it's main ingredient is liver.....about 20 bucks a bag at Petsmart.....

      Once again, so sorry to hear it.....losing a much beloved pet to me is as bad as a family member and I've been through too many of both.......

      •  I would say worse than losing a family member. (7+ / 0-)

        You don't put down your family members.

        And I've never had a pet I didn't like though I have a lot of people who some consider family members I fucking deplore.

      •  Thanks for sharing this valuable info (6+ / 0-)

        I'm looking it up as we speak..."Missing Link" sold at Petsmart...

        I haven't been there in a while...

        Thanks again!

        •  it's really miracle stuff and works on any age (5+ / 0-)

          the gold bag is the geriatric stuff with glucosamine and chondroiten....Absolutely amazing results and it only takes a 1/4 teaspoon a day per ten pounds of body weight.....Haley only gets a tich over .25 and my old guys are both around 40-50 lbs so it won't take much for them either......

          Even with all three dogs on it, a pound will last a month and for the quality of life difference I've witnessed, it's well worth it......

        Just spent about an hour sitting with him, giving him chicken and brushing his coat (which is one of his major pleasures in life.) He  has been on DeraMax and JointMax but they finally stopped working. The good thing is that he is not in pain - of course, that makes the decision worse, even though I am very grateful that he does not hurt. But he can't walk or even get up by himself anymore so my husband is having to move him whenever he needs to move and that is not sustainable. Plus, it distresses him both not to be able to move or to be physically moved.

        We've had him since he was 9 or 10 weeks old and he is 14 1/2 now so he has had a long, long life for a shepherd. But it is one of the worst things to deal with ever.

        I just have to focus on what a blessing he has been for all these years.
