Target The Source Of Dog's Dog's Hip & Joint Health And Save On Vets Bills This Winter With Our Unique Chews

Dog's often suffer in silence. If we knew how much pain they were in, we'd ensure their comfortability. Especially as we approach the winter months.

Here are 21 ways to ensure adequate joint care for your dog:

  • Watch for changes in behavior such as increased activity, limping or reluctance to move (could indicate joint pain or injury)
  • Exercise your dog at least once a day and provide an appropriate level of activity for his/her age and breed.
  • Consult with your veterinarian before increasing exercise intensity, duration, frequency, or scheduling exercise in extreme weather conditions (heat, cold or wet).
  • Avoid high-impact exercises such as jumping and running on hard surfaces to help lessen the risk of injury.
  • Increase daily activity levels slowly over time. Regular and moderate exercise is always better than intense workouts (and maybe more enjoyable for your dog).
  • Keep your dog's weight within a range that does not cause pressure on sensitive joints. 
  • Use a harness or front-attach leash instead of a collar when walking your dog to avoid straining the neck muscles and bones supporting his/her head and shoulders.
  • Always follow your veterinarian's advice if they prescribe specific exercises or conditioning programs for joint health. A knee brace could provide support during recovery from an injury that involves the knee joint.
  • Some dogs benefit from cartilage supplements mixed in with their food or a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement such as Plenti Pets Maxx Strength Hip & Joint Care Chews on a daily basis. 
  • Check your dog's water bowl for freshness and change it frequently to ensure cleanliness. Also, offer plenty of fresh, clean drinking water during exercise sessions and throughout the day.
  • If you have noticed that your dog is sore after vigorous activity, consider cooling him/her down by walking or swimming in lukewarm water before they rest.
  • Firmly but gently press at key points along or near the limb (such as behind the elbow and below the knee). If there are signs of soreness or tenderness, contact your veterinarian for advice.
  • Allow your dog to rest before exercising again.
  • If you notice that your dog has difficulty standing up or getting into position to go outside, take note of the time and make a record in case this happens again.
  • Consider investing in a ramp if there are stairs or other difficulty involved with going outside (due to arthritis).
  • If your dog can’t do agility jumps anymore don't push him/her! It's important to give your dog time to adjust to aging issues.
  • It's important that your dog doesn’t feel stressed about changing his/her environment so allowing him/her to take things at their own pace will help maintain positive feelings towards it.
  • If you have difficulty or physical limitations when caring for your dog, consider enlisting the help of a friend or family member, hiring pet care services, or asking someone in your community who is good with animals if they would be willing to help.
  • Making changes gradually over time and keeping an eye out for early signs of discomfort can go a long way toward preserving both your dog's quality of life and yours. 
  • Do not allow dogs to get on the furniture unless it is on a bed or couch designed specifically for dogs. Restricted movement due to joint pain or injury may make getting up and down difficult, potentially causing serious injury if a fall occurs.
  • It's best to keep the nails trimmed so your dog doesn’t scratch the floor when he/she walks or climb on furniture that is not designed for dogs (such as beds), which could cause him/her to twist their legs in awkward positions resulting in discomfort or injury.
