Pawz and Ribbon

Pawz and RibbonIf you haven’t kept a dog or any other pet, for a long time, you must be hearing this for the first time but it is certainly a fact that dogs and other animals, just like humans, do suffer from joint-pain. These pains can be really troublesome to animals if not controlled or taken care of at earlier stages. Arthritis – as this pain is commonly referred to, is a disease that any pet keeper cannot afford to take for granted. Once a smart dog keeper realizes that their dog is suffering from this disease, they will definitely want to keep them comfortable including getting the pet a personalized ribbon from Pawz and Ribbon.

 

Personalized ribbons from Pawz and Ribbon will not only make you comfortable to move around, but you will also be in a position to manage or even restrict its movement, particularly if it is suffering from arthritis. But that is not enough to keep this degenerative condition in check.

It is important to make sure you do the following to restore your dog’s good health;

  • Seek medical attention immediately

Once you suspect or see any arthritis symptoms in your dog, the wise thing you can do is seeking medical attention right away. In spite of the fact that arthritis tends to be a bit common in dogs, this condition mainly affects overweight, inactive and aging dogs. Therefore, if your dog falls in any of these three categories, you should be very careful and closely monitor its health.

  • Diet and nutrition

Veterinarians say that diet and nutrition plays a very important role in making sure dogs avoid arthritis or to at least manage this condition. Insufficient minerals and vitamins in dogs’ diets can weaken their immune system and, as a result, making the pet more susceptible in developing arthritis. To avoid that, always feed your dog with a diet full of all the required vitamins and nutrients.

  • Check the food you buy

Did you know that not all dog food have the minerals and nutrients they purport to be having? Yeah, that is right. That is just why you need to check the commercial food you buy for your dog. For instance, you may see certain commercial food being advertised as having human grade meat but that might not be the case. Also, it essential to know that your dog might be in more pain in the event that you feed him with certain food stuff that have too much calories.

  • Engage your dog in regular exercise

As mentioned above, inactive dogs are at higher risk of developing arthritis hence the need to make your dog exercise regularly. That is the point where special ribbons from Pawz and Ribbon come into the picture. The ribbons come in handy when guiding your dog during the training sessions.

However, do not force him to train in case your pet is suffering from severe arthritis. Make sure you subject him to some low-key exercises that will not hurt the pet or worsen its condition.
