Age is just a number but for our canine companions it’s also the number of stairs they’ve climbed, the number of balls they’ve chased after, the number of times they’ve jumped off the couch and so on.
Over time numbers add up and this takes a toll on the joints. Many older dogs suffer from osteoarthritis. You may think of it as them slowing down but in many cases they’re in pain.
Luckily, there are a number of safe new drugs that can help. Combine that with omega-3 fatty acids and joint supplements and you may be surprised to see your senior dog move around much more and live life more comfortably.
