Q. What can I do to help with muscle atrophy in my dogs front shoulder/leg? Vet has been of no help to me. Nothing broken, but a previous "sprain"

A. Repairing muscular damage will take some time. Building up scar tissue to support the injured area can take months or ever years. You may want to talk to your veterinarian about routine treatment with Collagen supplements.
