Q:

Apart from medicines, procedures and supplements, what can I do to help my older pet’s joints?

There are a few things you can do to help your cats and dogs suffering from stiff joints or arthritis:

  • Make a ramp on hard to reach areas to help them get onto hard to reach areas such as cars or stairs.
  • Investigate getting an orthopedic bed. 
  • Keep them as mobile as possible but without overdoing it.
  • Help them on slippery surfaces by using non-slip rubber mats. 
  • Consider changing their food.  Find out more about Hill’s Prescription Diet j/d, clinically proven to help dogs walk, run, play and climb stairs more easily, by soothing aching joints and preserving healthy cartilage. Available for cats too.
