Effective Dog Arthritis Pain Relief

Updated on April 28, 2011

A Dog Arthritis Pain Relief may be needed if your dog suffers from joint pain, this condition can also effect dogs at any age. There are several known causes one being dog arthritis, this is usually seen in old dogs.

Some other causes of there joint pain is lack of exercise, injuries, obesity, hip dysplesia and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Your dogs behavior can also change when there is pain, your dog may find it hard to stand, they will lick there joints,the dogs movement may look unusual, joints will be swollen, they will not take part in any physical activity and they also will be irritable.

If you suspect that your dog is suffering from joint pain you will need to take it to your vet for further tests and a medication or treatment can be recommended to help reduce pain. Anti inflammatory drugs are usually prescribed, always consult your vet first before giving any over the counter drugs to your pet.

These medications that you give your dog will only relieve pain temporarily as they can have negative effects if used for long periods of time.These drugs have also been known to be harmful to your pets organs as well.

For the dog arthritis pain relief to be more effective you may need to change your dogs diet.Include foods that are high in vitamins and minerals which will help strengthen and support your pets joints and muscles.Do not allow your dog to be overweight or obese. If your dog has degenerative arthritis your best option would be surgery to help repair the joint or in worse cases the joint may need to be replaced with a new one.

Natural Dog Arthritis Pain Relief

Because of the various negative effects of over the counter medications you may want to look into natural treatments that can help relieve pain. Glucosamine sulfate can be given to your dog, this is a supplement that can help repair joints. Chondroitin Sulfate can also be given to help hydrate your dogs joints so it will help cushion the joint.

A dog arthritis pain relief may also include exercise, this will help strengthen your dogs muscles and joints, make sure the exercise is not strenuous. You can also massage your dogs joint for 10-15 minutes per day, do this gently. This will help reduce swelling and increase blood flow and help with circulation.Another great natural remedy is to use tumeric, this can be easily added to your dogs food.
