Poor Fido ! He is sore and sad, we have all seen those puppy dog eyes that clearly indicate your dog is in pain. Arthritis is as painful to dogs as to people, so be careful when treating and of course a trip to the vet is always in order. Having said that, however, dogs generally love to be massaged and a dog with arthritis will both enjoy and benefit from the following treatment.

How to make homemade Dog Cough Remedy

Try to get the oil onto the affected joints by working through the coat and into the skin. Starting at the back, massage into the muscles in rhythmic movements working inward from the haunches. Cover the whole of the legs and also the vertebrae. Don’t worry about this being messy – your dog will soon lick much of the oil off but by then the correct amount of essential oil will have penetrated the skin and got into the affect tissue and bone and by licking it will also reach the digestive system. You can also try the cabbage method : Draw out the toxins with the cabbage leaf treatment. Wrap an ironed leaf around the wound secured firmly, and change the leaf four to six times in one day or until all of the toxins have been drawn off. Half a teaspoon of white clay in your dog’s water will also help absorb toxins from the intestine.
