What can I give my dog for pain? This is a question a lot of dog owners will possibly face at some stage of their dogs life. You know the signs, they are a little stiff walking and have difficulty in getting up. Stairs seem a daunting prospect for them as they give you a second glance as if to say help me.
There are many things that you can do to help them because, at the end of the day, you care about your pooch he’s part of the family. Remember the day you collected him or when he first came into your life well he’s the same dog, just a little bit older and now needs your help.
So what can you give your dog for the pain? Well before we go down the drugs route let’s assume the following has been done:-
Weight Loss – yes it’s that old chestnut again but if your dog is over- weight it will put more pressure of their joints and cause them pain. So next time your dog gives you the big sad eyes just say no, and yes I know how difficult to refuse them especially when they are a really foodie.
Healthy Diet – so you’ve got the weight off your dog or at least it’s going in the right direction it’s now a good idea about think about what to feed them in the long term. Minimal grains are key and as little processed food as possible. You might want to consider a fresh food meat based diet this is good if it is arthritis that is causing your dog’s pain.
Supplements – a good fish oil is great for improving joint function and yes there are many varities on the market. We recommend Dorwest products in particular those formulated for bones and joints.
Other considerations are
Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Laser therapy, Hydrotherapy, physical therapy, Massage.
You can also consider changing the environment they live in such putting rugs down on slippery floors or ramps so they can get in and out of cars and so on.
However to get back to the main question
