I got this from another board, and wanted to see what t-folk think.
This guy has a 16 year-old Great Dane/Lab mix. The dog has severe arthritis in his lower back and hips. The dog’s vet prescribed some medicine, but the dog owner doesn’t think it’s working very well.
The guy wants to put the dog on deca to help give the dog some relief since deca is known to ‘lube the joints’ in humans.
I think he’s nuts. I’m not a dog hater - I have three myself. But to give the dog steroids against the vet’s advice just seems nuts to me. Besides the damn dog is 16 years old - that’s like 112 to a human.
What would you do?
