Mobility disorders

19.5 What can I do to prevent and attenuate my dog’s joint pain?


Since mobility disorders, in particular osteoarthritis, affect one dog over one year old, it is important to prevent the evolution of the disease from a very young age. To do so, it is recommended to: 

  • watch your dog's weight (being overweight or obese is considered to be a inflammatory disease and participates to the development, maintenance and worsening of mobility disorders),
  • maintain a moderate physical activity, including during crises,
  • offer it a high-quality diet.

You can help supplement your dog’s diet with ω3 fatty acids that contribute to the fight against the inflammation and with chondroprotective nutrients. These are precursors to the material that makes up the cartilage(?)'s matrix. Some food supplements made out of chondroprotective nutrients of vegetal origin also act on inflammation and pain.  Studies showed that using this type of supplements allows for the decrease of the anti-inflammatories during crises.
