He's on injections, gabapentin and rimadyl, I know he's older but he still eats and drinks like usual on his good days he gallops around the yard.

Is there anything else I can do to make him more comfortable?

Do you have anywhere around you that does therapeutic ultrasound. It'd done wonders for a few of my shepherd clients.

Yes, can add Dasuquin Advanced daily. Also consider regular laser therapy treatments. Hills J/D can also help.

I’ve seen cbd do wonders with joint issues on dogs. Also, idk if it would be hard to find, but an animal chiropractor can potentially help as well.

Also consider getting a helpemup harness to help him get up.

Yes!!! CBD is fantastic. I’m getting ready to start my 3 kitties and 4-year-old chi on it just for prevention!
