What we didn't tell you in our last posting was that I had a very hard time getting comfy and moving about and the limpies do not help at all. I have osteoarthritis and it's painful for me. I do a lot of pacing at night and I do whining and I do crying and it makes mom feel so horrible not to be able to help me. The Galliprant and the Ellevet are not completely keeping me pain-free.
The day after Thanksgiving, mom called my vet and Cindy got us in at four that afternoon. It was pretty much for just consultation. There is new help for dogs with osteoarthritis in the form of an injection. It's called Librela, and it is now approved for vets to administer in the USA. It's three injections at one month intervals. My first one was on Friday. He said that they could see dogs miraculously improve between the second and third injection. He told us a story about a Pug that could no longer climb stairs and was ready to go to Rainbow Bridge and now he races up the stairs like he was shot out of a cannon! Yes, please - sign me up!
My vet and his techie got to see my new Help 'Em Up harness. What you don't see in this picture is the other half and goes around my back end. There is a clip that clips the front and back harnesses together at the point where my leash is attached now so mom can help lift me when I need it.
Mom is always telling me, "Don't get up, Molly. I will deliver the treats to you!"
