People who suffer from joint pain will often tell you they feel more pain during the cold winter months. It is believed that the cause of this is the drop in barometric pressure, which can cause inflammation and tissue to swell. Cold has the same effect on muscle, a stiffening that can cause discomfort even for those who do not suffer from joint issues. The same holds true for our pets that suffer from joint pain and arthritis. When the temperature drops we see that they move slowly because they are feeling more pain.
Keep Your Pet Active
One way to combat the effects of your pet’s joint pain in the winter is with movement. Exercise and being active helps their joints reduce stiffness and inflammation. And, in turn, a reduction in pain should follow. During the cold-weather months, joints stiffen up and are less prone to movement. As people who suffer from arthritis know, joints feel stiffer in the morning and in the cold. Also when it’s cold, we’re more reluctant to get up and get moving, which is one thing that will help. The cold makes it worse at a time when our pets are less inclined to be active.
As pet owners, we have to combat our own reluctance to go out on a walk. Walking will help both feel our pet and ourselves feel better. Movement helps your dog maintain muscle tone, and this is crucial to combatting arthritis and joint pain.
Keep Your Pet Hydrated
Staying hydrated with always having a full water dish has many health benefits including easing or preventing joint pain. Maintaining access to fresh water so your pet can stay hydrated will reduce pain in your pet’s joints by keeping the cartilage soft and hydrated. Water also helps your pet maintain a sufficient blood volume. This will aid nutrients moving throughout your pet’s blood and into the joints.
Keep Your Pet Warm
Keeping your pet warm and comfortable is important during the cold winter season. Provide your dog with a warm padded bed in an indoor location or even placing a blanket in his or her bed can help keep your pet’s joints warm and mobile. Pet clothing can also help to keep the joints warm. Put your dog in a dog sweater or jacket when it is really cold outside. Avoid leaving your pet outside for long periods of time during the winter.
Regular Joint Supplements
An effective joint care supplement works to repair and reform cartilage in your pet’s joints. Ingredients like glucosamine help give cartilage-forming cells in your pet’s body the elements they need to build new cartilage and repair damaged cartilage. Supplements are not pain killers that simply mask pain. Supplements take some time to begin making an obvious effect. They need to be given regularly and routinely to be effective. Another supplement ingredient that helps joint pain and arthritis in pets is MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) Always check with your veterinarian before giving your dog any new supplement.
