Q. HELLO SIR, MY DOG ( LABRADOR , 3 year) IS SUFFERING FROM LAMENESS, HE IS SUFFERING FROM KIDNEY PROBLEM CREATNINE LEVEL and WBC COUNT IS HIGH plz reply

A. It would be important to investigate both the reason for the pain and limping and also the kidney values and underlying disease more before recommending any medications for pain in this case. Diet and supplements can also play a very important role in supporting both the kidneys and joints and it would take a full assessment of his blood work and physical state to assess the relative benefits of each option. You will need to discuss all options and treatment for his elevated wbc with your vet; it is going to take a multi-faceted approach to manage his case well
