Hi, I used to be on the site but haven't been in a long time and don't know how to navigate it. I can't figure out how to search it if the info I want doesn't show up after I put it into the search box. I need info on how to increase my 3-legged dog's muscle mass (particularly in the 1 existing hind leg.). Thanks so much for this site. I've recommended it to friends over the years. It's really helped me.

EC: Hi Elya, we don't have any info on this topic and have just created a new page for you.

I have a 12yo choc lab that's always been very active but recently been fighting a few painful issues...spondelosis and arthritis in her shoulders causing her to drag her from paws. My gf works for a vet that uses a "water treadmill" to build mass in dogs without putting strain on their joints. My dogs about to start training in it to build up mass she's lost due to her injuries. Look into that, it can really improve dogs... good luck
