I'd like to hear some opinions on this apparent wives' tale, or if anyone has had personal experience with it...
Ok, my sweet little baby girl just turned 7, and she has pretty bad arthritis in her front leg joints. I was going to breed her once so I got the certification xrays done, and her joints looked awful, and that was 2 years ago. She has trouble climbing stairs, and after a good day of playing, can't get up on the bed or couch by herself. It breaks my heart, because she's not old at all.
I've been giving her glucosamine since I saw the xrays, and recently increased the dose, because she still has trouble.
I started researching other alternatives online, and was surprised to come across Borax as a possibility. Here's from Wiki, about where it comes from:
It says Borax shouldn't be ingested, and very very high amounts can be dangerous.
But another search pulls up countless examples of people who have used it for arthritis (as well as other infections and medical issues...):
There are more examples as well. It sounds like, from the examples (testimonies?) I've read that it only takes a tiny pinch. Even looking at the warnings about ingestion, it would take a large amount to harm her. I'm not really wanting to just throw my beloved doggy up for a science experiment, but I want to help her.
Anyone tried, or know anyone that's tried, this?
