How to Support your Dog’s Hip and Joint Health

How to Support your Dog’s Hip and Joint Health

Hip and joint health issues can be a common problem in dogs, especially as they age.

If you're a dog owner, it's important to know what to look out for in regards to hip and joint health. Common signs of hip and joint issues include limping, difficulty getting up or down, and decreased activity levels.

Poor hip and joint health can cause pain, stiffness, and even lead to mobility issues in dogs, making it difficult for them to run, walk, and play. Common conditions that can affect a dog's hip and joint health include hip dysplasia, arthritis, and other degenerative joint diseases.

To maintain good hip and joint health in dogs, there are several things that pet owners can do. Here are some tips:

1. Regular Exercise: Regular exercise can help keep your dog's muscles strong and support their joints. Low-impact exercises such as walking, swimming, and gentle play are great options for dogs with joint issues.

2. A Healthy Diet: A well-balanced diet that includes essential nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin can help support joint health.

3. Weight Management: Excess weight can put a lot of strain on a dog's joints, especially the hips. Maintaining a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise can help prevent joint issues from developing.

4. Supplements: Supplements like green lipped mussels, fish oil and glucosamine can help promote joint health and reduce inflammation in dogs with joint issues.

While Huntaway can’t assist you with exercising your pup, our product range can greatly help with the other three points to support your dog’s hip and joint health.
