65% of dogs will get arthritis before the age of 7. Now owners are turning to treatments to help eliminate joint pain and increase their dog’s mobility & flexibility.
Let’s face it, getting old is tough, especially if you have 4 legs, a furry coat, and floppy ears. Dogs have a multitude of diseases and conditions that they have to deal with. One of the most common is Dog Arthritis. This condition affects your pet in many ways, including…
Unfortunately, Dog Arthritis can make everyday tasks painful, and sometimes impossible for your pet. Like afternoon walks, chasing squirrels, going upstairs, and playing fetch. Fortunately, there are things we can do as owners to help our little friends reduce their pain levels, increase their mobility, and help keep them healthy.
Instead of taking your dog for a long walk once a day, why don’t you take your dog on 2 shorter walks, one in the morning and one in the evening? The shorter walks will be easier on your dog’s joints while providing them with the exercise they need to keep healthy and happy.
Believe it or not, dogs need vegetables too. They contain many beneficial vitamins that are not found in their everyday diet. Try to give your dog vegetables such as asparagus, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, and parsley. If they don’t like the taste, mix it in with their food so they don’t notice.
Treating them with a joint pain relief spray is one of the most effective, and most immediate ways to help them with their Arthritis. Many owners have seen an immediate increase in the mobility and energy levels in their pets.
Massage has many health benefits for your pooch. Including…
You may be noticing that your dog is eating less. This may be because it is so hard to eat! Help your dog by placing its food bowl on an elevated spot. This way, it doesn’t have to strain its neck when eating. This step can alleviate the pain associated with Dog Arthritis and further reduce the risks of arthritis attacks.
All my life I've been in love with one big friendly dopey Mastiff family member after another. No other breed has given me so much pleasure. I care about them as much if not more than most of the people I've ever known and now it's a dream to be able to research and write up everything my team and I have learned and are continuing to learn. Hope you enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoy writing :)
