‘Jesse’ is a ten year old female yellow Labrador who has suffered from advanced elbow arthritis for many years. Her owners have given her shark cartilage supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin, fish oils (containing Omega-3 fatty acids) and a range of different non-steroidal drugs (carprofen, etodolac, meloxicam). She actually had a biopsy to exclude bone cancer as a problem. Jesse had an elbow replacement and by ten weeks was improved and consistently using the right front leg.
