  • Chiropractic care: Chiropractic adjustments help increase mobility so a dog doesn't compensate for stiffness or pain by walking abnormally, which can create other problems.

  • Homeopathy: For those who prefer homeopathy, the most common remedies for arthritis are Bryonia and Rhus toxicodendron (poison ivy).

  • Diet: Be sure your dog isn't overweight. Schoen recommends a properly balanced natural diet, preferably home prepared.

Natural and alternative therapies slow the progress of osteoarthritis; strengthen the dog's joints, muscles and overall health; and enable the dog to live a longer, happier life, says Schoen. Consult a holistic veterinarian for diagnosis, a treatment plan, and dosages.
