Here’s How You Could Help Your Arthritic Dog!

Make them feel comfortable!

An arthritic dog needs a lot of care. Discuss his care regimen with your vet.

Medicines: Typically, dogs with arthritis are given glucosamine and chondroitin supplements. If the dog is in severe pain, he may be prescribed NSAIDs(non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). But these meds have side effects when taken over a long span of time. Your vet will decide on the medication for your dog depending on his condition. Never give your dog painkillers or NSAIDs without your vet’s permission. You could also try Ayurvedic medicines like Rumalaya and Sallaki Plus but ONLY after discussing it with your vet.

Don’t let your pooch put on excess weight: A fat dog may be a cute dog, but obesity puts more pressure on the joints. Keep your dog at the ideal weight for his breed. This eases the pressure on the joints.
