spinal arthritis in dog (technical question)
Have a bulldog mix that is 10 or older - shelter adoption.
Lameness in rear leg - so vet did xrays and said the dog has spinal arthritis. Prescribed Rimadyl (yes, i know the controversy about Rimadyl).
I want to buy Novox so i went to a different vet. She looked at the xray and saw nothing but thinks it may be an ACL.
How does "spinal arthritis" show up on the film?
The original vet showed me the xrays and pointed out the brighter area on the film and said it shows brighter because it is denser there.
Is the healthy part denser or the arthritic part denser?
