I recently noticed that my youngest dog (Yoda) is limping/skipping a step on his left hind leg. Although he hasn't seemed to be in any pain I took him to the vet anyway. My vet didn't seem too concerned after observing him walk and after manipulating his leg in different ways, but she prescribed him Rimadyl (an anti-inflammatory medicine) and a week or two of rest. After doing some research on the drug I became somewhat concerned about the safety of Rimadyl. Knowing that Boxers are prone to hip dysplasia and a host of other hip related ailments, I am hoping that this limp isn't a precursor of future hip problems. I also did some research on supplementing a dogs diet with vitamin C and its effects. There were ofcourse some conflicting views on the subject. Has anyone on this site tried supplementing their dogs diet with vitamin C, and if so what was the outcome? I am thinking about trying it out because there seems to be more evidence suggesting that it's beneficial rather than harmful. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
