Trixsyn for arthritis?

Has anyone heard of or used Trixsyn for their arthritic dog? My vet recommended it for my 6 year old Shepherd/Lab mix who has been having a hard time getting up (especially when it's cold outside). She said it was all-natural and helped to lubricate joints. Any feedback would be helpful.

I'm not sure. Is that a medication or a cream? I've heard that things like icyhot and osmofelx is good for dog arthritis but i haven't tried it. My dads dog im pretty sure has arthritis.

It's an oral supplement. I've never heard of using icyhot on an animal, seems like it would be irritating to the skin (it is for me!) and I worry that they would lick it off.

I have no experience with Trixsyn, sorry, I would have to do some research. I use Rimadyl on the really bad days but try to avoid it if possible for my Sally. I use glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, fish oil and Vitamin E. There is great dosing and management advice on www.dogaware.com; I will look there to see if she has reviewed Trixsyn as well.

One of the things that work really well for arthritis is swimming. I dont know where you are based but if you google 'dog swimming' you can read up on what hydrotherapy does for dogs with arthritis.

The mix you have are both renowned for various problem - most commonly, HD, arthritis and CDRM. If you start the swimming, and keep it going for at least 5 weeks on twice a week you should see massive improvements.

I have a 3 legged newfoundland dog who has been swimming since his amputation which was at age 2. He is now approaching 12 and not on any medication. He swims generally once a week and has been since age 2.

If its too expensive or there just isn't any pools in your area, then maybe try the local lakes.

I have been a hydrotherapist for some 9 years.

Yes. I keep hear that swimming exercises is good for dog arthritis. Nearly every time dog arthritis is brought up so is swimming techniques.

We sell quite a few of our Support Suits to dogs with arthritis, and to amputee/three-legged dogs, to help them get outside or up/down stairs, as well as to pet owners who use the suit or Get-a-Grip harness on their animal during hydrotherapy.

Not sure about that medication term. If your dog is suffering from Arthritis then you should see a vet and follow the diet plan which he suggests for the dog. Also, don't buy any medicine for the dog without consulting the vet first.
