Harper Lee from A to Z: J is for JOINTSPosted: April 11, 2014
Today, I would like to address the subject of joints. Oh, wait a minute. Maybe I should be a little clearer. I’m not talking about the kind of joints that were just legalized in Colorado. I’m talking about my joints . . . specifically my hips and elbows. When I was a little less than a year old, I was diagnosed with hip and elbow dysplasia. (You can read more about my happy hips and elbows by clicking here.) As you can imagine, this was a hard diagnosis for my humans to hear.
But we are all pleased to report that, more than four years later, I am doing quite well. I take daily walks to strengthen my muscles; I maintain my girlish figure; and I go to rehab (not the Lindsay Lohan kind) every other week to exercise on an underwater treadmill. I also take daily doses of Dasuquin and fish oil tablets. Dasuquin is a joint health supplement, and studies have shown that taking it with fish oil tablets can improve its effectiveness. If nothing else, the fish oil keeps my golden coat beautiful.
My humans and I aren’t certain what the future may hold . . . but, then again, who is. For the moment, we are all happy with my joints . . . I mean my hips and elbows.
