Default Re: About "Hip Dysplasia"?

That x-ray looks absolutely painful.

Cosequin is glucosamine and chondroitin. I know there have been several that use these products with older hedgehogs. I use it with my older hedgehogs to help relieve arthritis symptoms and to improve mobility. If your vet thinks it may help your little one, it shouldn't hurt him. I use a human variety, as it is far cheaper than the veterinary versions. I crush a tablet by using a mortar and pestel and give it a hefty sprinkle on my hedgehog's kibble.
