Let's Get Moving!



dog runningJust like us, pets can become immobile. It can be due to a variety of reasons; whether it is age, illness or let’s face it - laziness.  Similarly to us, there is a selection of solutions to get your pet moving again.

Your vet may recommend that you should give your pet Onsior in order to improve mobility. Onsior is non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that relieves pain and inflammation in cats and dogs.

If you are looking to improve your pets’ mobility without drugs or medication a good start would be to look at their diet. If your pet is getting too much or too little food, this will have a direct effect on their mobility. In addition, the quality of their food will have an effect as well.

Eukanuba is a brand of dog food specifically tailored to improve your pet’s nutrition and general well-being. Made up of a complex combination of ingredients it helps improve your pet’s health and in turn their mobility. If you are unsure, vets usually recommend you take their 28-day challenge to see the improvement in your pet.

Kong toys are perfect for this. Kong has a great range of toys that will help motivate your pet. The Kong Squeezz Dumbbell for dogs is perfect for a game of fetch. It’s bouncy and squeaks so it’s bound to catch your dog’s attention.
It’s crucial for your pet to get exercise to ensure they are by your side for as long as possible. A few simple changes to your pet’s diet and daily exercise can make a huge difference to their mobility. If you have concerns that your pet’s lack of mobility is due to poor health or illness, talk to your vet for further advice.
