Joint Medicine for Dogs

104 16

    Warning

    • Do not give human joint medications to a dog, as they will be far too strong. Do not give ibuprofen to a dog as this will get him very sick.

    Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)

    • Some NSAIDS can work well with a dog to reduce pain and inflammation. These include aspirin, but not ibuprofen.

    Corticosteroids

    • These are steroids that also help with inflammation and any underlying infection. These are used for immune related arthritis and osteoarthritis in a dog.

    Chondroprotectants

    • These help ease pain and protect the cartilage. These include Omega-3 fatty acids, glucosamine and chondroitin. These can be purchased over-the-counter.

    Acupuncture

    • Besides changes in diet and adding chondroprotectant nutritional supplements, acupuncture is the only other effective alternative remedy for a dog.
