I have a black lab who is around 11 years old. She is slowing down and showing her age. I've notice she (like me) is having a harder time getting up. It just looks like she is hurting from her hips from arthritis or something. Does anyone have any recommendations on what works to ease the pain. I don't want any "as seen on tv" pills, just something someone else has used and really believes works. I have bad knees and tried the glucosamine/chondroiton (sp?) thing for over a year and didn't feel it did anything for me. Please let me know, Roxy will thank you later.
