One of the dogs we have in for rehoming is lame, the vet has advised an intra-articular steroid injection to deal with bicupital ( spelling?) tenosynovitis in their dog’s shoulder?
Did it help?
\is there anything else we can do, we have him booked on for hydro-therepy

i have tsv in my wrist and one thing i can say is the dog will be in pain. on a bad day the pain is intolerable
rest and splinting gives most relief – more than painkillers

Max is a springer spaniel, he was out into kennels and not picked up, kennels say he had been limping when he got there and was on metacalm, ws in kennels for about 5 wks alowed to run free, when we got him, he was put on lead walks, but he pulls like a train and putting strain on his shoulder, one vet says steroid injection will help, othjer vet says it wont.

can u teach him not to pull ? (i know its easier to stop some pullers than others!!) 😉
am sure bev will be able to advise
i know my condition is very much pain limited as in if its too painful i just have to rest it so in a way you could say that actually i use it normally until it gets real bad and then stop for a couple of days and then off i go again – is Max self limiting like this or is he very pain tolerant (i know springers can be very very from past rescues i have seen).

forgot to say, i’ve been told over and over there is no treatment for this condition and docs dont even reccommend splinting any longer (they did when i was 16 – just way health service has changed its mind!!)
