My Dog has Arthritis....what can I do?
Understanding the Arthritic Dog
By: Dr. Jane Bicks
Common in older large dogs, long-backed dogs such as Daschunds, small dogs
known for knee problems, and after orthopedic surgery, the symptoms of
arthritis in dogs are similar to those in humans.
Stiffness, limping, problems getting up, crying when the painful areas are
touched, and reluctance to run or walk are
symptoms of canine arthritis.
As always, your veterinarian should be the one to diagnose it.
To help alleviate the pain and perhaps slow the ongoing progression of this
disease, you can do the following:
- Keep the dog in a warm area, sleeping on a water bed or heating pad.
- Encourage small/moderate amounts of exercise.
- Keep his weight normal!
Here are some more ideas on
prevention of canine arthritis.
Go here for an online chart to see if your dog is overweight:
- Feed a high-quality professional food.
- Supplement with alfalfa (See Below)
- Give an omega 3 supplement
- Supplement with Ester C (See Below)
- Supplement with shark cartilage (follow manufacturers recommendation)

First, is Agility.
Agility has glucosamine HCI, MethylSulfonylMethan (MSM), perna canaliculis
(sea mussels), calcium phosphate, powdered cellulose, liver powder, hydrolyzed
vegetable acid, yucca schidigera, dehydrated alfalfa, boswellia, fish oil,
stearic acid, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate.
Agility was specially formulated for large breed and long backed dogs (of
any age), senior cats (over 10 years) and senior dogs (over 6 years).
It is also recommended for pets suffering from mobility loss, stiffness and
Did you know that the most commonly recommended treatments for these
symptoms typically are steroids, anti-inflammatory drugs, or consequin.
Steroids and the anti-inflammatory drugs also carry various medical
disadvantages such as pancreatic disease, diabetes, and liver disease to name
Consequin is a one-dimensional formula that contains glucosamine only. The
problem with Consequin is that it does not address joints and surrounding
tissue. Plus Consequin can be very expensive.

My Daily Nutritional Supplement also contains alfalfa and Ester C,
two very important ingredients for dogs with arthritic type problems.
In recent years, alfalfa has become a minor folk remedy for rheumatoid
arthritis. Alfalfa is an antioxidant rich herb that supports healthy joint
tissue by fighting free radicals which are highly reactive chemicals that
worsen joint problems.
Ester C is a neutral vitamin C which is not upsetting to the stomach, is
chelated for easy absorption and is assimilated by any body chemistry the dog

truck.....plus the cows no longer make fun of her!
