Brrrrr the cold can really effect aching joints.

You may have noticed your elderly dog getting a bit stiffer with the onset of the cold weather?

Here are a few tips to help them get mobile again;

  • Make sure their bed is warm, padded and kept off cold floors and out of draughts.
  • If they get wet out on a walk fully dry them off when you get home.
  • Pop a coat on them for walks in the chilly weather.
  • Place a Snuggle Safe (a heat pad specifically designed and safe to use with pets) heat pad in their bed.
  • Make an appointment with us for a massage, we can show you some basic techniques you can use at home to warm their muscles up and reduce stiffness.
