American Bulldogs and hip dysplasia
SO I see that my AB has a hard time sitting now adays and I feel awful everytime she does, I have been gone for a minute but I have noticed there are dog lovers on this board and breeders as well. I just ordered some Gluco-C® which is for joints kinda like our flex-all if you will, fiugred that is a good start. Does anyone have a good food that wuold help with direct relation with hip and joint problems? Any info would be appreciated. My dog needs help....

Wow that was great.
I was doing alot of research and did read about those xrays that you have mentioned here. I just last thursday had her put out for an operation to have a growth removed and would hate to do that soon again, she was cocke eyed for two days. I am trying this brand of glucosimine to start but it doesn't hae any chon. in it, wonder is I should get more or get chon. Here is site I ordered from tell me what you think http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...&N=2001+113626
Also I live in Northern New Jersey but I am moving to East Brunswick NJ and I am actual looking for a good vet.

Keep her on the joint care stuff, and see how it goes...if you see any drunkeness looking walking in the back end, or she seems very uncomfortable or is draging her back toes...get her seen asap...these are signs of a disc problem...which, sometimes, if caught early enough can be treated medically and not ssurgically.
Let me look into the vet thing in your area, and I will get back to you. Any more questions, I am more than happy to answer.

clchase-Thanks for the post, PM me when u get some info on a good doctor. As far as the drunken master walk she has not done that it appears that she just has trouble sitting but I am going to watch her walk today maybe I didn't see that
