Dog Joint Health

As dogs age, they can encounter joint problems just like their human owners. Arthritis, a catch-all term for abnormal joint change, is common in older dogs but can occur in dogs of all ages when there are complications in bone and joint growth, congenital defects and infection. While not life-threatening, arthritis might cause your canine companion discomfort that ranges from mild to debilitating.

If your pooch is limping, obviously stiff, less keen to exercise, has trouble getting up from sitting or lying down or seems to be in pain when moving, he or she might be suffering from some kind of joint problem, the most common being arthritis. Other symptoms might include increased pain or stiffness during bouts of cold or damp weather, or gentle licking at painful joints. These symptoms might not be obvious at first, but it is important to look out for them in order to treat arthritis in its early stages to avoid it worsening so your dog can still enjoy pain-free walks, playtime, and naps.

Joint disease in dogs has many potential causes:
1) Fractures that affect or involve the joint in question
2) Congenital, metabolic and developmental disorders
3) Dietary and hormonal disorders
4) Degenerative and inflammatory disease

Fortunately for your furry friend, there are lots of options when it comes to treating joint disease. Weight management, exercise and providing warm, soft sleeping areas are all effective ways of reducing your pooch’s pain, but there are many effective oral treatments to treat joint disease. These treatments are used in treating both human and canine arthritis - they might have different names, but they work the same way! The active ingredients promote cartilage regeneration in damaged areas and prevent enzymes from unnecessarily dissolving cartilage, alleviating pain and promoting smoother joint movement in order to reduce the effects of arthritis.
Fortunately, pet bucket now stocks a variety of excellent supplements for doggy joint pain and stiffness, from major leading brands.
