Pain relief at home for older dogs
suki39667 posted:
What can I give my 12 yr. old dog for joint pain relief at home? Aspirin doesn't seem to last very long, and I'm told it's not safe to use for extended periods.

It works slowly, but I've had awesome results with Cosequin. It's a dietary supplement that can be sprinkled on their food or fed in capsule form. It has Glucosamine, Chondroitin and some trace elements, and works to help heal the joints. I've known some pets that didn't respond to it and others who acted like they were years younger. You can buy it at pet stores or on Amazon.
