6 Supplements You Didn't Know Will Help Your Dog's Arthritis

Author : Stan Cristian

Not many people know that even dogs can suffer from the many pains caused by arthritis. Maybe you are worried and nervous about putting your dog through a dog arthritis treatment but it is a must. Sadly many dogs these days don't even respond to some of the normal medicine veterinarians give them and end up feeling so much worse then they did in the beginning. So in order to make your dog feel better you might want to go with natural methods of dog arthritis treatment instead.

Before we get to the treatments maybe it's best we discuss what arthritis is like for a dog. Arthritis between humans and dogs is the inflammation of muscles and joints that usually affects inactive, older and overweight dogs. However with dogs you yourself can not define your dog’s pain but you can tell based on how active you dog might have been in the past compared to now.

There are six great supplements that can really help your dog and his arthritis. The first is mussels. The reason is that mussels are actually essential to repairing damaged tissues. The most effective in dog arthritis treatment are Greenlip mussels and also Perna mussels.

Another great treatment is Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the best supplements that can protect dogs against joint deterioration. You can add up to 4,000 mg of powdered Vitamin C to your dog’s meals to lessen the arthritis symptoms. However be sure you use a Vitamin C that isn't highly acidic.

Another great natural herb treatment for your dog’s arthritis would be stinging nettles. You can make your dog some stinging nettle tea from a powdered extract. You can add the stinging nettle to other herbal teas such as Alfalfa and Yucca tea that is also great for reducing the arthritis pains your dog might be having. You can make the tea daily and give your dog the right dosage depending on their size. The best time of the day to give your dog the tea would be in the early morning to relax their stiff joints.

The last of the 6 great natural ways to reduce your dogs arthritis symptoms are vegetables and also comfrey leaves. Dogs do enjoy eating comfrey leaves but it's recommended that you mix them with rosemary and parsley also. And vegetables provide all the needed minerals for your dog. You can really help your dog if you give them any one of the things on this list to help treat their arthritis pains.
