    Default Limp tail - Questions for Dr Ed

    Hi _ I posted yesterday about a young dog with her 3rd episode of limp tail. I have started Dr.Eds Boswellia herb and have some questions. Can it be given with other anti-inflamatories (like Rimidyl) or with a pain med like Tramadol? Also what is the recommended dosage for a dog prone to this - is twice a day ok and should it be given every day? or just before? or on a training day or test? Hoping Dr Ed will see my post. Thanks for the help.

    Somehow I just don't picture our Dr. Ed doling out Boswelia herb...perhaps the Dr. Ed of which you speak is not the Dr. Ed of RTF fame?

    Or am I in for a shocker ???

    You are correct, definitely not me, I do not prescribe herbal remedies. I practice traditional medicine not holistic medicine.

    He is Doc E, and I don't think the E is for Ed.

    Maybe you are giving the wrong type of "herbal meds" and causing limp tail.Cheech++Chong+dsn236.jpg

    The "right decision"to a retriever is generally that decision which feels good or is the most convenient.So its the trainers job to teach the dog that what feels good is that which pleases the trainer.
