Case 2: Female Dog , 4 ½ yr.. old , 49 pds. knee swelling CC: Polyerosive arthritis of greyhounds, affecting R front leg, hip, and back (spine)

  • Result of ‘accidental breeding’ from a kennel , given to the Animal Rescue League because she could never race. Adopted at about 6 mo. of age, she was thin and walked pigeon toed. Her back legs would give out. Two mo.. later she fell, slipped on grass, and fractured the right back leg, and was put in a cast with ensuing cartilage damage (from disuse). She stopped eating, developed a bacterial infection with diarrhea, was treated with tetracycline and doxycycline. She fell again the following month. She has since had a R hip replacement and R front knee plate. She is on prednisone 2x a day, 1.25 mg. for the last couple of months.

Case 2: Female Dog , CC: Polyerosive arthritis knee swelling

  • 3 weeks ago her R side became hot and tight (3). Was given tetracycline. Very swollen, she still looks “ready to burst”. Her appetite is good, but her stools are loose, orange (2). Urine is concentrated, no thirst even in heat (3). She does not tolerate heat, and likes to be outside especially in the cold (3). She loves lying in cold, wet grass, seems to feel better (3). Her skin is thin, fragile, and very dry and flaky.(2) She has anemia, and hypothyroid (low T4) and recurring cystitis.

  • She limps in a frenzy all over my office, very active (3) but clumsy (3), bumping into things she moves so quickly. Her owner says she loves people and attention, and is extremely jealous (4). She fears abandonment, and being left alone(3). She often screams in pain, and in a demanding way. She is sensitive and becomes anxious easily. In a house with many other animals ( about 40 ) she has established herself as the dominant dog. Lies on the owners bed and allows no one else on. She is scarred from fights with other dogs. Can be aggressive(2), to protect and get what she wants (3). Most of the time maintains hyperactivity. Requires assistance to get on her feet from a lying position.
