Default i think she likes the taste

i think this is cool . most gun dogs i've had love spent shotgun shells .. this is my sweetheart .. she had to retire on account of knee surgery .. we go out and pretend hunt almost everyday . as long as i'm carrying a long gun she's happy

I certainly wouldn't let my dog chew on a spent shell.


Also, what kind of knee surgery would cause a dog to have to retire ?

OK on the shells then.
How old is your dog ?
When was the TPLO ?


Following properly done Rehab, I've never heard of a TPLO dog that was limited ---- except that as they get old, they get arthritis worse and more rapidly than what would be considered normal

that's it ..she can't even jump in the van anymore . most of the time she can get her front legs up and then we can help the rest of the way.. she's 8 tues valentines day .. surgery was about 4 yr ago .. dasuquin keeps her moving . she has other issues .. she's better off just living a slow motion life

Regardless of how the ruptured CCL was repaired, they will develop arthritis in the joint. Our dog (now age 9) tore his CCL 5 years ago. We repaired it with Cold Laser, but then he developed arthritis in the knee.
We have been treating it with Radial Shockwave Therapy once a month and applying CBD linament every evening. His arthritis has diminished remarkably and he is still going strong. Not only when hunting, but also when running HRC Retriever Hunt tests.
