Traumeel and Zeel absolutely have been amazing for my animals! It was recommended by a holistic vet that I try the Traumeel and it has worked wonders on my rescue lab with torn ACLs (while waiting for surgery). I stopped for a bit and she began limping again. I definitely attribute her amazing progress to Traumeel. I own a small, natural pet store and was able to get both Traumeel and Zeel. Each product has produced great results in many customers' animals. Traumeel is for injuries or rheumatoid arthritis and Zeel is for osteoarthritis.
I have found flax seed oil excellent for cats and dogs if they do not mind some in there food. It does not have much flavour and has an endless list of properties. Excellent for aging animals as is is good for skin, fur, brain and especially arthritis sufferers...if animals take this when young they would probably avoid later life conditions. Once I lived with a dog riddled with arthritis and looked crippled when walking...the owner agreed I could give her this oil and she actually gain mobility back to a huge degree and had a lot better quality to life before passing. Oh also great for humans too!
Our 11 year old dog was really slow getting up, and stopped running. A friend made some dog biscuits, adding a drop of hyaluronic acid to each biscuit. After 3 days our dog was running around like a puppy again.
My 11 year old Golden Retriever dog and I have been taking Glucosamin with or without Chondritin for several years now and the difference has been great, particularly in the dog. She has serious problems with her rerg joints, but she is much more mobile whilst taking the tablets with her morning food. ACV has been reccomended by a friend at work, so I am about to start with the ACV (for me, not the dog) so I am hoping that what I have read on your site will work for me also. Very informative site. Thanks
I tried this with my dog last 2 days and no sign of improving unfortunately.
Try Cosamin DS instead, which is a glucosamine and chondroitin supplement. It works quickly and the results are fantastic. I use the human version (you can also find it at Costco) for my two 15+ year old dogs. I empty one capsule into their food once or twice a day and mix well. I saw improvement within a couple of days.
You can also try the dog formula called Cosequin by the same company, Nutramax. It has MSM whereas Cosamin DS does not. I tried that too for them and I think the Cosamin works better. The company had such good results with their formula for animals, they made a human formula! Great reviews on Amazon for both people and dogs for Cosamin. Def read them!
My dog's arthritis pains have been significantly reduced with Rhus toxicodendron.
Where can I find this Rhus product and what exactly is it?
EC: Hi Anita,
This homeopathic remedy is inexpensive and easy to find. Your local health food store might carry it. Or check out all the online sources at Google shopping: http://www.google.com/products?q=Rhus&hl=en&aq=f

My Chocolate Lab Sam has arthritis and was recently attacked by a dog. I had started him on ACV before but forgot sometimes. He has been on it faithfully for the past 3 weeks now and is getting better and better. He is on a raw diet and I just mix it in. For those dog owners who have dogs with failing health I recommend you look at the BARF diet. I wouldn't have believed that a dog who I was told would be dead in 3 months from liver problems would completely turn around due to diet and supplements(including ACV). We are what we eat and so are our pets. It has been 11 months and Sammy is doing great!
Apple Cider Vinegar
I personally use it several times day, it works for different problems. All the dogs (7) are on it, from a disabled dachsie to three young healthy dachsies. It helps with arthritis, ear problems, wounds, itching. Adjust ph levels, prevents uti's. Gives them a healthy skin and also cleans out the bodies, like it does for humans
