Natural Remedies For Treating Lameness In Dogs

Some cases of limping in dogs can be given natural remedies that are recommended by holistic veterinarians. These include the following:

Massage

Use ‘warm oils’, such as cinnamon or peppermint to massage the affected limb or joint. The warmth and massage can promote blood circulation to the area which can help with the healing process and improving the range of motion. Massage is also soothing to the patient. 

Acupuncture or acupressure

You can take your dog to a certified veterinary acupuncturist for this procedure. 

Supplements

Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, as well as the most popular joint supplements, glucosamine, and chondroitin, can help alleviate inflammation and promote joint healing. Regular supplementation can work wonders on many parts and functions of the dog’s body.

Do consult your animal hospital Oconomowoc WI before doing applying any of these natural remedies to your pet.
