We went to our vet to see if he could help our dog " Miskeen " who was in a lot of pain and could hardly walk. He told us that we had two choices, one stay as she is and keep using her pills or have her put down. My wife said there has to be something else , he said not as far as I know. My wife saw an ad on tv about " Animal ortho care" I got in contact with them ( who were very helpful and loved what they do). To cut the story short our dog is doing wonders, it's a miracle, she stands up to eat her food now and also walks so much better. We are so happy that we did not take our vets advice, other wise she would not be with us today.
