Can anyone help me, my three-legged dog, called Indy anna who is getting on, her front leg is starting to collapse when she stands. I have put her on a diet to reduce pressure on the leg. Indy is a right character and beautiful natured and healthy in all other respects. Has anyone got any idea what I can do to help her and reduce discomfort, and even suggest some sort of buggy I could put her in. Problem is she is quite a large dog a collie cross labrador, and because she lost her front leg by getting knocked down by a car she is apprehensive with machines

Is this a joint issue? If so you may want to try Glucosimine (sp?) or Triflaxen (sp) which are both joint building suppliments that have done wonders for our boy with ED. Also try swimming, not sure how that will work with a three legged dog, but it will take the strain off the joint while it is being worked and rebuilt.
