9 Best Natural Remedies For Your Dog

Arthritis

4. Massage

Older dogs often suffer from arthritis, but you can help make your friend be more comfortable by giving him or her a gentle massage on the affected joint. A warm compress twice a day provides relief (don’t use a heating pad, it can burn the dog’s skin), and be sure that your dog has a comfortable bed to sleep on. Even if your dog sleeps on your bed at night, comfortable dog bedding should be provided in the home’s main activity rooms.
