How do you know if your dog is suffering from joint pain, arthritis or is it just a sign of aging?
Hi, I'm Heidi Caccamise and I'm the proud owner of Peppy Paws Furever. I am that passionate dog owner, just like you. You probably have some questions about whether or not your dog is suffering from dog joint pain, or might it just be signs of aging. This is a really difficult thing for most dog owners to understand the difference between, so I'm here to answer a question for you, how do you know if your dog is suffering from joint pain, arthritis or is it just a sign of aging?
1 First... Let me ask a few questions to help you out.
Is your dog showing less interest in just playing? If you have another dog at home, are they not playing as much together anymore?
When you grab your dog's leash, is your dog still running to the door knowing that it's "w time"? That's what I say with my dogs "It's w time!", it gets them very excited. If I say the word "walk", they're completely out of control. If your dog has lost interest in going for a walk, that might be a sign that your dog is suffering from joint pain.
Is your dog slowing down?
Basically, if your dog is slowing down, losing interest in playtime, losing interest in their walks, maybe yourz dog is even just showing signs of having a more difficult time getting up and down the stairs, jumping up on the bed, or jumping up on the couch. Those are all signs of dog joint pain which can be typically an indication that your dog has arthritis.
2 What can you do to help ?
That's what we really want to know as dog lovers, right?
We see that our dog is suffering, we see that our dog's in pain, we noticed our dogs' quality of life is not what it once used to be. As a fellow dog lover like yourself, what we want most for our dogs is to have the greatest quality of life, to run, play and enjoy life like they're two years old, forever if we could do that.
3 Let me share with you a couple of things...
Let me share with you a couple of things you can do to make sure your dog is suffering the least amount possible with dog joint pain. There are things you can do to help alleviate the pain. One thing you can do is really just make sure your dog is the proper weight.
If your dog is overweight, they're putting much more stress on their joints, which is going to make their pain worse. If you're like me and you've been rewarding your dog far too often with unhealthy treats (yes, I'm guilty), your dog could have a weight problem and that's going to just make the joint pain worse.
I'm not saying you can't give your dog treats anymore. Just make sure you choose something healthy and maybe limit the treats.
4 It's super important you keep exercising your dog
Even though earlier we talked about your dog not being enthusiastic about going for a walk, it's super important you keep exercising your dog if you can. If you don't, and your dog's just sitting around on the couch all day long, their joints are going to get stiffer and that could cause more pain.
I know you love your dog. The last thing you want is to do something inadvertently that's going to cause your dog more pain.
5 Here's the number one thing you can do to help your.
If you think your dog is suffering from dog arthritis or showing signs of having joint pain, the best thing you can do is to get your dog on a supplement. And not just any supplement. All supplements are not created equal. At Peppy Paws Furever we have a supplement called Peppy Paws Hip and Joint Care for Dogs. It has a combination of extra-strength ingredients of Glucosamine, MSM, and Chondroitin. These ingredients are known to work together to help lubricate your dog's joints, alleviate pain, and slow the progression of dog arthritis.
Our extra-strength formula is going to help the supplement work faster and have a longer-lasting effect.
I know if you're watching this video you want to help your dog, right? We all want our dogs to have the greatest quality of life.
