Red Dingo Dog Tags!!!

Do you ever wonder what would happen if you dog accidentally wandered from home or got lost in some unexpected way?

One way to help allay your fears is to have a dog tag on your dog with identification and contact numbers.

We decided to fo just that and have just received our order from Red Dingo Pet Adventure!

We are so impressed with the product, their really prompt service, their follow-up to ensure the order was correct, and the quality, presentation and correctness of the final product!

We would like to recommend their services to you! Check with your local vet (as we did at King Street Veterinarian ) or check out the website:  Red Dingo Pet Adventure

Dogs With Arthritis: Types of Joints

All 3 are lubricated by synovial fluid, which deteriorates as your dog ages. The lack of this fluid causes the bones to move directly on one another, creating pain for your dog.

The natural way to replace synovial fluid is to give your dog a supplement that includes chondroitin, found for example in marine collagen extract.

Dogs with Arthritis: Signs of Arthritis


You might first notice it when your dog needs help getting into or out of the car. It might be when he just doesn't feel like going for a walk anymore. It's hard to watch your pal in pain.

Dog Arthritis, also called osteoarthritis, occurs with old age and is often genetic. While it can't be cured, it can be managed.

The key to managing your dog's pain is identifying the problem. Once you've noticed the problem it's always a good idea to get an initial assessment by your vet.

The top Signs of Arthritis are:
  •  Stiffness or Limping
  • Decreased activity or lethargy
  • Difficulty getting up or down
  • Loss of playful attitude
  • Lack of interest in exercise
  • Loss of range of motion

Dogs With Arthritis: How Old is Your Dog?


How old is your dog really? We speak to many clients who tell us that their dog is just "too young" to have developed arthritis. Usually their dog is around 6 or 7 years old. Canine arthritis can start earlier depending on breed and injury history, but it's interesting to see just how old your pup is!

  • Small dog = 20 pounds or less

  • Medium dog = 21-50 pounds

  • Large dog = More than 50 pounds

    So what do you think? Were you suprised at your dog's age?

    To keep your dog feeling great as they get older, don't forget to give them their Get Up and Go Tablets.
