Several types of dog pain reliever are available, some more reliable than others. If your dog is experiencing pain, then you need to be sure to administer the appropriate dog pain reliever and to do so in the correct manner in order to protect your pet’s welfare and well being.
Heat technique. This method is worth trying. Place a flat, colder pan on the floor to keep the dog warm. Add enough hot water to cover the pan (not cover it with too much water). Put the dog into the pan while it is slowly filling with hot water up to the head. Do this until the water is level with the pan or it will burn the dog’s feet. Shallow water can be used to keep the temperature even when the heat is not on. Dogs have incredibly sensitive paws and will burn easily.
Massage. If you have a dog that has arthritis, this is a good way to reduce the pain. The veterinarian can determine arthritis by running an arthritis checklist on the dog. You can do this at home and then send the results to the vet.
Milk. There are special dog foods that are formulated for dogs with arthritis and other joint problems. These are more expensive than the standard food, but are worth it for the safety and efficacy it provides.
People food. People food is bad for dogs with arthritis. Though they might be willing to eat it, it is generally low quality and takes the animal longer to eat. This applies to just about all dog food.
Exercise. While it might be difficult to give your dog too much exercise,jury prevention and lowering the chance of obesity is a good way to help them.
Give your dog the appropriate amount of food based on its size. Too little will cause them to be overweight and too much will be as bad as too little.
Select the appropriate dog pain reliever. A friend who runs a Michigan Site work company gave me this advice – there are a number of over the counter medications for dog joint pain suffering. G naproxen and Rimadyl are the most popular. They provide pain relief and sleepiness at the same time. They are generally well tolerated and don’t usually cause dangerous side effects. There are also medications for dog joint pain relief pain relief that provide durable pain relief. These prescription drugs provide an arthritis pain relief that is similar to what a dog might receive from a vet. Some of the most commonly prescribed dog pain killers are Etogesic, Zubrin, Rimadyl, Deramaxx and Zubrin. They work basically on the same basis as the over the counter pain relievers. They are often less expensive and store bought. They also work effectively on osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, and inflammation.
When you see a dog suffering from joint pain, it is important to try to ascertain what, if any, relief, if any, can be provided. If it is not prescription medication, provide your dog with the needed amount of warm, gentle relief and have the dog move around so that the limbs are supported. With the warmth on, perhaps a hot compress or hot compress recommended by your veterinarian can provide some relief. Your dog needs you to be its partner in getting its life back into shape. Your veterinarian can recommend which over the counter medications might work.
