problems associated with arthritis are common to geriatric dogs but are
not exclusive to the older pet. Some pets are predisposed to arthritis
through breeding and other factors such as weight or joint stress. One
out of five adult dogs have some form of arthritis. This may be the result
of hip or elbow dysplasia, trauma or osteochondrosis, a disease in rapidly
growing large young dogs. This pain associated with arthritis can be debilitating
and cause significant loss in range of motion. Your pet ages at a rate
of five to seven years for every one of yours. This suggests that health
problems can progress five to seven times faster for your pet.
Telltale signs of arthritis are stiffness following normal play and
exercise, reluctance to jump or climb stairs, taking longer to fetch a
favorite toy.With appropriate veterinary care and good nutrition, you pet's
senior years can be healthy and happy. You know your pet better than anyone
else does, he relies on you to provide for his changing health needs. Providing
continuing veterinary care, good nutrition and love are priceless gifts
that you can give to make these special years for your pet.
OLD DOG COOKIE COMPANY developed
these Arthritis Relief Cookies when our dog 'Jetty' developed signs of
arthritis. Taking long walks, playing ball and climbing stairs were causing
discomfort. By supplementing her diet with cookies containing herbs, vitamins,
minerals and essential elements known to build strong joints and relieve
inflammation, Jetty was her playful self again. Alfalfa and cod liver oil
are used to reduce the discomforts of arthritis. Proper amounts of Vitamin
C are necessary for good adrenal function, without them Jetty couldn't
make enough cortisone, resulting in arthritic symptoms. That's why pure
applesauce is in our cookies. We also add honey to our Arthritis Relief
cookies to promote energy and healing. Honey is a natural antiseptic. Because
Honey is added, we do not recommend our Arthritis Relief Cookies
for diabetic dogs. You will find approximately 40 cookies in each package.
