Natural Remedies for Joint Pain in Dogs

Posted by Tony (Tiburon, Ca) on 07/24/2012

My lab developed pain in her front legs, which her vet said was arthritis. He prescribed anti-inflammatories and pain killers which worked really well. But as soon I stopped, the pain returned. Then I tried Dasequin. That didn't help. Finally I tried alfalfa. I increased the dosage to 2 grams twice a day, the result is miraculous. She is no longer hobbling around. When I took her to the park this afternoon, she was running around with all the other dogs. I remember before I gave her the alfalfa, she was always eating grass. No she doesn't do it. I guess she was trying to self-medicate. The alfalfa has really been a god-send.
