5 Steps to Caring for Senior Dogs

If your dog is 7 years old or more, there are a number of health challenges they can be more susceptible to. The foremost of these conditions can be joint degradation or arthritis. Look for these five signs and then follow the five steps to make sure they keep that youthful bounce. Canine arthritis is a big problem for older dogs; as the joints get older they lose the materials that lubricate and cushion the bone from the tissue

The Signs

  • Slow to rise from a resting position
  • Reluctant to climb steps
  • Tires easily or lag behind on walks
  • Appears stiff or even limp after activity

The 5 Step Plan

  1. Protect the Joints with Nutrition
    Glucosamine, Chondroitin Sulfate, and MSM are powerful natural tools to help restore joint health. RJX for Dogs™ has all three of these in the levels your pet needs.
  2. Reduce Pain and Inflammation with Nutrition
    Omega-3 fatty acids are known to produce  substances that reduce both pain and inflammation. Use Celavin™ Omega-3 formula which is produced in Norway in one of the top 4 factories in the world. Ultra-Pure high dose omega-3’s.
  3. Monitor and Remove Foods that Aggravate
    Remove grains from your dog's diet and weed out any possible allergens. If possible, feed a raw dog food diet. Read Grain-Free Diets: The Secret for Healthy Dogs
  4. Incorporate Exercise and Weight Control.
    Controlled feedings and more exercise are natural ways to reduce your dog's weight.
  5. Ensure Proper Bedding.

These steps will get your dog back on track and feeling great.
