Supplement From VeganEssentials For Furry Kids

Lulu has been suffering from arthritis since few years ago (hind legs) and her joint conditions is getting worst recently and also she kept on biting her front legs. This has got me worried since many months ago and I did get some medicine for her from my vet but they just didn't help much. I have tried various range of glucosamine, both in powder form and tablets, unfortunately I didn't see much result or improvement on her. She used to be very active last time and can jump up on chair with no problem. But now if you watch the video below, she is getting weaker and I have to carry her down from second floor, 2 times a day to go potty, unfortunately they are not toilet trained. Bobo and her used to walk together but now I have to take one of them down separately. Video below and photo was taken last month.

Ten days ago, I placed order online some supplement for Lulu and Papi. The online store has lots of vegan products for companion animals and also for humans, the website is called VeganEssentials, check it out if you are interested. One good thing about them is their shipping cost is very reasonable! I have bought the following;
  1. HomeoPet Skin & Itch Relief Formula
  2. Glucosamine HCL Powder by Prescription 2000
  3. Natural Calcium Powder for Dogs and Cats by Animal Essentials
I do hope glucosamine and the skin & itch relief medicine will help and improve Lulu current condition. Since the glucosamine and calcium are in powder form, so feeding shouldn't be a problem. All I have to do is mix with their daily food. By the way lulu is already 9 years old and she was adopted from our local shelter.

Chris's mum's family suffer with arthritis and her mum says she finds it better if she keeps moving. She says if you can persuade Lulu to do gentle exercise it might stop her joints from siezing up too much. Also she says Omega 3 that is found in oily fish is supposed to be helpful - we dont know if you could locate a vegetarian alternative to this that is suitable for dogs?
