Dog joint pain

Joint supplements, like Cosequin or Osteo-BiFlex(Glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM) may well be helpful. Products with UC II (Instaflex?) have had scientific trials done in dogs with arthritis, with good results.
Acetominophen(tylenol) is a good first-line pain reliever - and safe for dogs (NOT cats!); worth trying before you move on to bigger guns, like meloxicam, and the opioids like tramadol, oxycodone, etc.
CBD... who knows... probably won't hurt, and I've seen anecdotal claims of miraculous results. We grow CBD hemp on the farm here, but I can't afford to buy CBD oil. lol

If you can find a veterinary acupuncturist, they may get better results for your dog than all the above.

Note: I am a (retired) veterinarian, married to a veterinarian(who was certified to do acupuncture 25 yrs ago, before it was 'cool'); I don't just play one on TV.

Canna-pet dot com my dog tore her acl she is a nuffie and 130lbs Dr said surgery was a coin flip and 5k. 4 weeks of limited movement to let it heal she limped a lot and was in clear pain. Put her on cbd pills and in a week she lost the limp and was playing again. She gets stiff in the cold and we give it to her in the winter and there is relief right away.
