My dog had a horrible reaction to the lyme vaccine. She was a healthy two year old and after the vaccine became so lame she was unable to stand let alone walk. And it progressed to where she could no longer open her jaw. We thought we were going to lose her. Of course the vets would not admit it was from the vaccine but that was the only logical explanation. One day healthy, happy and running around. The next unable to move. Literally right after getting the vaccine. It was so bad we had to carry her out to the yard to go potty and she weighs 60 lbs.

After many trips to the Angel Memorial in Boston and every test imaginable including X-rays of all her limbs and spine they could not find an explanation for it. We had to put her on steroids and an autoimmune drug for almost a year. She slowly started regaining her strength. Thankfully she had a full recovery.

My brother brought his dog to the groomer, and they did infer red treatments on the Mighty McDuff. He felt a lot better after the treatment, causing me to be jealous and want a treatment myself. My brother told me all the staff uses it on their aches and pains. so just a thought to supplement his diet and meds.
good luck/

Yes, it does mellow them a bit. It's worth a try since the side effects are nil.

Thanks for the response. I will give her some CBD. It doesn't hurt to try!
