We can’t control the weather but we can provide some comforts to alleviate stiff joints.
Ensure your dog’s bedding is cosy, cushioned and away from draughts. Older dogs and those with short coats may need some pet clothing to keep them warm.
Just like us, dogs will get sore muscles if they don’t do proper warm-ups before exercise. Start with a brisk walk to loosen muscles before they have a play at the park. For senior dogs, take slow, shorter walks.
If your dog enjoys the water, warm baths are heavenly for cold stiff muscles. To prevent slipping, ensure tiled surfaces are covered with towels or rubber mats. Remember to only wash them no more than 4-6 weeks unless they are very dirty or your vet has prescribed otherwise. Use bath time to massage them with our Wash (if needed) and Leave In Conditioner to keep them moisturised and smelling fresh.
Excess weight is harmful for dogs and puts extra pressure on joints, so be mindful to feed them appropriate quantities and keep up physical activity suitable for their age.
Physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, massage and acupuncture may help improve your dog’s mobility. Speak to your vet about some suitable options.
Despite all of the above, some dogs will still require medications from their vets in order to be comfortable and have an improved quality of life. Remember that dogs are not as good at complaining as we are, so don’t delay a vet check if you find that your dog has stiff joints, is slowing down, limping or seems uncomfortable.
