Arthritis help

Hello! First post in a while but I’ve been lurking! Our dog is 10 (a rescue) and currently on Metacam and yumove. He has struggled with arthritis for a long time as unfortunately he was an accident and very badly cared for so his front legs point outwards. He is starting to struggle with his pain level as he’s starting to snap at the other dog and my husband when he touches him. He’s also decided not to come upstairs anymore which I’m so happy about in a way as it must be agony for him. What can I ask my vet for next?
Picture for cuteness! Colin says thank you!

Colin is very cute and handsome [smile[

There is a lot that can be done for arthritis and discussion with your vet is a good place to start. There are other pain killers , physio, and a lot of life style changes that can make a huge difference to a dog.

Look at the Cam website and facebook page for a lot of advice and help
