Signs of Arthritis are similar to signs of normal aging, so if your pet seems to have any of these symptoms for more than two weeks, the best thing to do is to have your veterinarian examine them, and then advise you as to what treatment plan would be best to help your pet deal with pain. Arthritis treatments for pets are similar to those for humans. These may include:

(1)Healthy diet and exercise to maintain proper weight


(2) Working with your veterinarian to find a drug treatment that helps re
relieve the pain

(3) Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) the most common treatment for dogs with arthritis

(4) Over the counter pills or food containing glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate or omega fatty acids. Both have been shown to help relieve the symptoms of arthritis in dogs.

(5) Diets with special supplement may also help decrease the discomfort and increase joint mobility.

The most important thing is to keep moving. Just as humans should keep moving as we age, so should our “little guys” Long Live Senior Dogs!!!
