    Default Help for Arthritis Pain in Golden Retriever

    Hi I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what is the best and safest painkiller for my Golden.... he is 11years and he has been on Metacam for the last couple of years but I think he needs something better as he is either becoming used to this drug or his Arthritis is getting worse.

    I have tried the Glucosamine and all that usual type of stuff but a waste of money.

    I adore this wonderful old guy as he is so stoic and brave bless him, would appreciate any help or ideas.

    We have had a lot of success with Tramadol over the past few years with several of our dogs. It seemed to give them a new life and way less pain. They all were sleepy for the first couple of weeks, but then they adjusted to the relief and became alive again. I truly believe that Tramadol extended their lives greatly and we are using it with 2 of our senior dogs right now.
    Ask your Vet, it's really not expensive either, we pay $38 for 500 pills.

    I too have had success with Tramadol for my 13 year old baby. I would say just to try it and hope for the best. Good luck to you both!
