My poor boy's arthritis hurting him.
My dog is almost 7, and has arthritis. He has pills he has to take, and hes been doing great to where we only have to give him one every 2-3 weeks, even a month. Ever since we have been going to training class for heeling, I've been having to practice at least twice a day. She also wanted me to get his energy out with his tennis ball. I think all of this has made his hips hurt lately. Right now I'm laying next to him petting him with long strokes. He keeps moving, getting up, laying back down, getting back up, etc. I feel so bad for him! I gave him his pill. Is there any massaging I can do to help? I don't want to make it worse. Advice? It tears me up that he's gotten arthritis already, I wish it could have at least come later in his life.
