Her name is Dee-Dee, and she is a white german shepard with a little wolf in her. Dee-Dee's back is just a little weak, and I was wondering if I could help her a little. She keeps up to date with the veterinarian on a regular basis. I've seen several suppliments on TV. Are any of those any good?

Have you taken her to an animal chiropractor. If it is her back that is bothering her, chiropractors specialize in back problems so they would probably know more than a general vet about what can be done to help her.

We used acupuncture on ours, and it helped, also swimming is good if you can do that. The exercise helps make strong muscle to hold the back. Supplements can help the pain MSM and glucosoimine (don't know if i spelled it correctly) will help with joints.
