    Hi all -- I know some of you have mentioned using arnica topically on does that have had a rough time kidding. I have used an equine product -- Sore No More -- on my horses before, and recently on me. I have a knee that swells and gets really painful and the SNM really helps. It's unbelievable how well it works. It's a combo of arnica, rosemary, lavender and lobelia.

    So here's my question. I have an older dog with arthritis in both stifles. I've started applying it to her, and it seems to help. Do any of you know if I can find a stronger arnica product, how to apply it, and how often?

    Thanks!

    I have a old dog a that I put the Arnica ointment on and I wrap it just so he does not lick it. I do it twice a day.

    hmmm didn't know Arnica would work on stifle injuries.... I have a doe that injured her stifle last year and still hobbles around on 3 legs every couple of weeks... I wonder if that would help her??? :whatgoat:
