    Default Trouble jumping on furniture

    Need some advice . MooShi , my 6 yr old fur baby , has been having a hard time jumping up on furniture lately .And once in awhile if she has been sitting a certain way she will limp for a short time after getting up. Is this normal for a dog her age and any tips advice on a good supplement to give her . I hate to see her struggle in any way and feel she is still so young to be going threw this .Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, around this age you may start to see signs of arthritis. I would get her on a good joint supplement. We use Nujoint Double Strength for Tyson, but anything that has MSM(Methylsulfonylmethane), Glucosamine, and Chondroitin is what you need. Should give her some relief, if its really bad one day - and you have a heating pad, that along with a nice massage will help soothe the joints a bit. But I would definitely get her on a supplement - they love them anyway, we use ours as treats, Tyson loves them.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    -day-3-rosie-003-jpg We purchased these stairs for our 11 year old Diva same issues she was just getting old , You can get them at Amazon.ca or Com , the cover is washable and so far it has never slipped out from underneath here as she uses it , this one is good for 75lbs , We also have a 4 step one for the bed. Rosie our 11 week old pup used them the first week she was home , the steps are deep and wide for them and balance , worked very well for us.
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Not in bullies. Their joints & overall build makes them pretty prone to it

    Side note: elevated feeders help with joints a lot too since they don't have completely bend down to eat or drink.

    Swimming would be great for her. I know it would be a lot of work for you to get her there, but maybe even in a bath tub it would help her a lot. Jack needed some physical therapy awhile ago, so we bough a swimming harness from Julius k9, and it had extra flooding pads so I was able to control the pressure on him. Swimming helped us sooo much, and he got more active in such short time. I guess they need that daly activity in order to keep all their joints healthy, but on ground it is a lot harder and could cause issues like yours. This is coming from my vet.
