As dogs age, it’s natural for them to become less active. Their easy runs may become stiff walks, lying down may be accompanied by a deep groan, and they no longer greet you at the door with the same level of enthusiasm they once did. It’s hard to see a pet you likely consider a part of your family go through these changes. However, these changes aren’t always a sign of natural aging. Your dog could be developing arthritis. Keep reading to learn about the early warning signs of dog arthritis and dog arthritis natural remedies.
Arthritis in Dogs: How Do I Know If My Dog Has Joint Pain?
The signs of arthritis in dogs can be very subtle. Some of the most common indications are the following:
- Reluctance to jump or be active
- Noticeable weight gain or loss
- Urinating indoors
- Joint licking
- Difficulty rising from rest
- Lameness and stiffness
Dog Arthritis Natural Remedies
Some of the most common natural remedies for dog arthritis include the following:
- MSM (Methylsulfonlmethane)
Glucosamine is naturally found in bone cartilage, and it possesses natural anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Chondroitin supplements can also help rebuild cartilage naturally and boost recovery of tissues after injury or exercise. MSM can help lower inflammation and restore healthy bodily tissue, restore collagen production and improve flexibility. All these ingredients work together synchronously in Dr. Maggies Joint Formula.
Dog Arthritis Pain Relief: Natural Remedies
One of the best natural products for relieving joint pain is Dr. Maggie’s Joint Formula. Instead of masking symptoms, it gets to the root of the problem and improves joint function and mobility. It contains the building blocks to build back and repair the cartilage and soft tissues in the joints; providing lubrication and cushioning. We also recommend complementing it with Dr. Maggie Skin & Coat. It contains Vitamins A, E, and D that work synergistically with the ingredients in Dr. Maggie’s Joint formula. For quicker dog arthritis pain relief, we also recommend NaturPet Ouch-Relief.
NaturPet’s Joint Care works in conjunction with Dr. Maggie’s Joint Formula. NaturPet’s Joint Care contains herbs that provide pets the nutrients they need to heal. It helps provide better circulation, decalcify their joints and removes toxins and allergies which could potentially lead to inflammation in the joints. It also relieves pain and inflammation. Both products are safe to use together and very effective since they are working in two very different ways to improve mobility, pain relief, and healing. Both products are good to start giving pets who are 7 years of age or older as preventative maintenance rather than waiting for symptoms to appear.
At Nature Pet Store, we only carry all natural, high-quality pet products to help you restore and improve your pet’s quality of life. Dr. Maggie and NaturPet products are formulated with natural ingredients that are actually even safe for human consumption. We understand how important your pets are and that you’d only want to give them something you could feel comfortable taking yourself.
