I have 5 springer of different ages. I love them all very much and when they hurt I want to do everything I can to help them.

My older female (they are all females) is 11 years of age. She started having problems around one ago. Not being able to get up without a great deal of effort, or sometimes we have to help her.

She loves to play catch and will run until she (usually me) can not do it without plating . No more standing up in the window or getting into the van without help. This makes me sad to see this happening her.
I have started her on MSM, This has helped her a lot. Try this and see if it too can help your dogs,
