We all want to see our dogs fit, healthy and ready to enjoy life. Unfortunately, joint disorders are common in dogs. Aches
and pains can increase as the years advance, making joint pain a concern for many dog owners. Such problems can be particularly
evident in certain breeds and include a range of conditions from age-related stiffness to chronic arthritis, or even a more
serious joint problem.
Many dogs suffer from joint problems throughout their life. While size, weight, age and speed of growth can add to the strain
on joints, such problems can affect all breeds and all ages.
Indications that your dog may be suffering from stiff or sore joints can include:
• Loss of vitality and/or tiredness
• Limping or difficulty moving
• Reluctance to go for a walk
• Problems climbing up and down stairs
• Difficulty or stiffness climbing in and out of dog beds or cars
• A previously active dog might struggle to keep up with you when running, or want to spend less time playing
in the park

Prevention is better than cure!
It is possible to help keep joints young.
Beaphar has developed a range of supplements to assist in the maintenance of healthy joints in dogs of all ages. Designed to help maintain comfort and mobility, as well as to encourage a return to a more active lifestyle, they are suitable for supporting the joints of very active dogs, such as those working or trialling, and for older dogs whose joints are suffering from excessive wear and tear.
How to alleviate some symptoms of joint pain:
- Moderate, daily exercise to keep joints and bones strong.
- A warm, soft place to sleep, enabling joints to rest and recuperate after an active day.
- Maintain a healthy body weight. Overweight dogs are susceptible to joint pain, due to the extra burden they have to carry.
- Ensure a healthy weight is maintained, especially in older dogs.
- Regular use of a high quality supplement to support the normal functions of tissues, cartilage and tendons.
