    Hi Labsrule'; He seems to be alright so far. Just short walks and he is loosing all tennis balls on the weekend when I find his hiding place. I am keeping an eye on his diet and started him on Perinase for joints instead of sashas blend. same thing but cheaper. He is back to eating the cat so he must be feeling better but not out of the woods yet.

    He is back to eating the cat
    Can I borrow him? There's a few cats too many around here.

    Or did you mean the cat's food? Most dogs love cat food - it's got a higher fat content than dog food hence seems tastier.

    No I mean the cat but yeh he eats the cat food as well when I am not watching, but the cat eats his food as well so I am sure that one the cat will go woof woof and the dog will go meow meow

    I am also watching what he eats as well so he doesn't like that but bad luck

    By the way they do get on well together but he can get a bit playful so I have to watch that, he could squash her if he got a bit excited

    I haven't heard of any dogs squashing cats but I guess it's possible. Most cats are pretty good at getting out of the way or asserting themselves if needed.

    Off topic but my dog did this. She chased one of my parents cats and the cat slipped on wet grass and the dog doesn't haven't good stopping and crashed into the cat, fell on it and broke both it's back legs, poor thing had to have $6000 in surgery

    Roz - So the diagnosis was Arthritis?? What did they say had caused the arthritis? That is a worrying diagnosis at only 11 months of age, no dog that young should develop arthritis unless it has joint issues and you would have to worry about how severe arthritis might get if the dog is not managed well for the rest of its life.

    Ie: My now almost 4 YO dog went completely lame in her back left leg at 10 months old and was diagnosed with patella luxation, she had surgery to fix it straight away, she now has arthritis in the knee joint from the surgery and in general because it is a bad knee. She also has severe hip displaxia (managed by supplements, a good diet, a healthy weight and low impact exercise (hydrotherapy) and regular chiro appointments) which is causing arthritis in her hip joints.

    Hi K&P

    I'm pretty familiar with dogs skittling people - adults as well as children but that's the first I've heard of dog falling on cat. Learn something every day

    He has got the injury because in his play he jumps up high for the frisbee and that shouldn't of been his play. His bones are still growing so the diet he is on will help and paranaise for joints. he is taking it for me so that is good. I just put it on top of his food once a day. We will watch him and get him checked regularly and both vet places are watching him so it is under control. Thanks for your concern anyway.
    About the cat she walks under him all the time and he thinks its play time again but she can run away if she really wants.

    Just anote. Axel is doing great so far. No limp at all and still active. He does eat the powder on his food too. Only problem is he only eats what he wants and doesn't eat more if he doesn't want it. He is not a guts as everyone keeps interpreting. He doesn't eat half as much as what he is allowed to.
    Keep you all posted if anything changes.
