    • 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.

    I think it's interesting that you offer a type of poison ivy as a remedy. While I know most dogs are not allergic to it my dogs both had horrible life threatening experiences by ingestion and simple contact. I would not recommend anyone take that chance with a pet they care about.
