It is important to take dog arthritis seriously, as the condition will become progressively worse and will therefore gradually degrade the quality of your dog's life. Treatment with analgesic medications, corticosteroids, and supplements that support joint health is fairly common, but you may also want to consider some lifestyle changes. More specifically, it is important to help control your dog's weight. As dogs grow heavier, the demands on joints also grow and arthritic symptoms become more severe.
In addition, most dogs with arthritis should continue to receive moderate exercise. In order to prevent the progress of arthritis, your dog needs to maintain muscle mass and joint flexibility which can be achieved by routine exercise. However, excessive activity can be detrimental to an arthritic dog's health. These dogs should not be encouraged to jump or stand on their rear legs, and dogs in excessive pain should be exercised on a leash to prevent unnecessary strain.
One exercise that is especially helpful is swimming. Swimming is low impact and does not overstress the joints, but it is an excellent activity with respect to maintaining muscle mass and joint flexibility.
