      A good thing to try would be Golden Paste.
       It is made of time tic, coconut oil, and freshly ground
      black pepper.  You can look up the recipe online.  Helps
      my 10 year old greatly with arthritis.  Check with your vet
      first.

      Hi Cavalier's Friends and Parents,



      Lately I noticed that my 11 years old Cavalier is uneasy and
      sometimes "wobbles" on his hind legs. He looks a
      bit week when he climbs on stairs and I am wondering if
      anyone experienced this behavior? Is there any supplement
      that could be useful for mitigating the "week hind
      legs"? Thank you in advance.



      Best regards,



      Judith W. Mills

      Message 2 of 9 , 31 Aug
        My 12 year old, Cavalier, Logan was diagnosed with CHF and lung cancer in June of last year.  He is on heart meds, but the oncologist felt there wasn't anything they could do for the lung tumor because they couldn't put him under.  I do use some supplements that hopefully are helping. 

        He recently started coughing more.  An xray showed some fluid in the lungs and also that the tumor was a little larger.  We increased his meds and now, on bloodwork recheck, his liver enzymes are moderately high.  He will be going to the vet on Tuesday for blood pressure check and, depending on how he's doing, maybe another xray.

        My biggest concern right now is the collapsing trachea issue.  I feel like it's just as much, if not more, of a concern than the CHF and cancer.  I can sometimes hear him breathing across the room.  BTW, his rr's are good - between 12-16.

        Does anyone have any suggestions for something that might for him.  I'm going to bring this up again with my vet on Tuesday.

        Thanks!

        Mary

                Thanks, Rod.  I had also read the information on the website about collapsing trachea.  I really feel that the fluid in the lungs is under control, but that he is not getting enough oxygen because of the trachea collapse.  We lost 3 of our Cavaliers in a short period of time two years ago, and Logan is showing the same symptoms as one of them and that is the noisy breathing, not just the coughing.  It really worries me that there doesn't seem to be anything we can do for him.

                  Hello Mary, 

                  Hope you are well and so sorry for Logan's health condition.  And also, I am so sorry for not being able to keep in touch, thou you're in my thoughts and prayers including our furry kids here with us and in heaven. 

                  I will be going to church today and will say a special prayer for Logan. 

                  Cody and Luna are doing well.  Cody lost about 15 lbs and in good health but noticed his hearing is going with his age (now 11 1/2).  Luna turned 1 year old 6/21, 17 lbs so now on diet. :-)  They do get along pretty well.  They do play but not as much as Luna would want to due to age gap. So, I am Luna's playmate.  :-) 

                  Dave and I just got back from Kona last Thursday for a week vacation.  Jessica is at home and watched the furry kids which was nice (less stress on my end).  Her good friends at work came over after work while we were gone which was really nice.  As normally they go for happy hour and dinner after work (life of young kid nowadays).  

                  I resigned from my current job last Monday and starting a new job on 9/11.  I wiped all my photos from my laptop.  So, I will send you few of the furry kids later from my cell phone. 

                  I promise to me more in touch.  Have a good and blessed day and take care. 
                  Please give Logan hugs and kisses from us and extra treat.  

                  Sending you much love, 

                  Malou, Cody and Luna

                      I use human grade supplements by Standard Process for my 14yr old including Canine Flex and Glucosamine Synergy.  I also use the Kan Essentials Hips and Knees Chinese Formula. In addition I add turmeric to her food which reduces Inflammation and has cancer fighting properties. Also keep the fur trimmed short between her toes and "toe Grips" in the rear helps with slipping on the hardwood floors. I've seen a remarkable improvement in her hind legs stability since adding this combination. She isn't on any heart meds except for Amlodipine for BP and no longer requires furosemide. Resting RR is 12 - 16. She is a bit slow going up a flight of stairs in the evening but aren't we all! jj
