Hello,

I recently adopted a tripawd. He is 4 months old! We do not have any info on how he lost his front leg because he was from a rescue transfer from another state. He has had a full exam and is extremely healthy, the vet even said his surgery was done and healed up well. His front leg is larger than his others because it is all muscle!

I was wondering if I should start looking into supplements or things to keep his front leg and joints strong in the future? Any and all advice would be great! 

Here and Now

Welcome, your future forum posts will not require moderation.

Way to go for adopting a Tripawd and for doing your homework to ensure he lives a happy healthy life. What's his name?

Consider consulting with a certified rehab vet tech (CCRP or CCRT ) for a professional opinion. Or download Loving Life On Three Legs in the Tripawds e-books library for lots of information about diet, supplements and the best recommended exercises, stretching massage and more.

While some rehab vets suggest not using joint supplements until there is a reason, most agree that Omega 3s are a must. Watch our CSU orthopedic video interviews for more information. You'll find many more recommendations in the Tripawds Nutrition blog and lots of articles and videos in the Tripawds News blog .
