We got these from Meg’s holistic vet, a natural form of pain relief and anti-inflammatory derived from hops. I’m hoping they may help (in conjunction with Metacam, CBD oil, Dasuquin etc.) to manage her arthritis.  Just intrigued to know if anyone has tried them. I couldn’t find anything by searching the forums.

WOW…just came across “gold bead implants” that are supposed to mimic permanent acupuncture. Hoax? Sham? Or valid? Have no idea but check it out.

A friend of mine’s white shepherd( whatever the English name is for that breed) had gold implants put into his , I think, spine area to counteract displasia a few years ago. My friend said it helped a lot for a while in the later stages. 

Oh and am I the only one that finds ‘Hops Formula’ funny in this context??? 😂 Must be a language thing. Just saying… 😊

Thanks for the link, Sally. That’s really an extremely informative and useful article. Encouraging too. I’ve saved it, so I can keep going back. 

I am NOT going to let Meg hear a word about gold implants or she’ll decide she must have them at once! Or diamond implants, that’ll be the next thing.  The Megastar always has to go one better. And guess who has to foot the bill… seriously I will look into it, and also into selling a kidney. 

And no Tina, not the only one. We clearly have the same (warped) sense of humour.

OMD! Just been reading about a Dane who had 360 gold beads implanted along his spine. 360! 😳

You’re the first to mention it here so thanks, it’s new to us. The holistic pet care website DogAware, which I consider to be trustworthy, says:

Kaprex, which is marketed as an herbal replacement for NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Rimadyl or Aspirin). I have heard only one direct report from someone who said it helped their dog, but have heard anecdotally that it has helped a few other dogs, and it would appear to be fairly safe, although since it acts in many of the same ways as the NSAIDs, it might also have some of the same dangers.
