We just bought a Dogue De Bordeaux and he is showing signs of hip dysplasia and also possibly elbow dysplasia. We have had a dog with hip dysplasia but have no experience with elbow.
Has anyone had a large breed with all over dysplasia? Any tips to make him more comfortable?

A friend of mine dealt with this with her German shepherd. That dog had surgery several times on differant joints. One thing that helped Elsa was acupuncture along with pain meds.
