No diets are specifically designed for the pet with osteoarthritis per se, however, what we have observed is that many pets with arthritis are also overweight. Since increased weight load on the joints significantly contributes to pain and worsening of the inflammation and destruction of the joint cartilage, it is important that overweight pets be placed on medically supervised weight-reduction diets. Ideally, pets with arthritis can be kept slightly thin or under-weight, to minimise stress on the joints.
If your fur kid is overweight, and also suffering from arthritis, then your first action would be to arrest the obesity. Realise that obesity does not occur overnight, and neither will it go away overnight. While a very small subset of pets truly cannot lose weight, most pets will reach an acceptable weight within 6 to 12 months of starting an obesity diet coupled with an approved exercise program.
Prior to starting a weight-reduction diet and exercise regiment, it is important that your pet receive a blood profile to rule our other diseases or conditions (for example, thyroid problems and diabetes). Presence of these diseases would require treatment in addition to dietary therapy.
The Honeyvale Rebound Arthritis Relief is used to relieve inflammation and pain in joints and to improve circulation using 100% natural herbal blend. All in all, Rebound conveniently provides a completely holistic approach to the herbal and nutritional treatment and prevention of canine arthritis. It is safe to feed to dogs over the age of 6 weeks at recommended dosages. However, please note that Rebound is NOT recommended for pregnant bitches, as some of the herbal ingredients may have uterine stimulant properties! It is recommended that these herbs be withheld from use on pregnant animals until further studies are conducted to provide more conclusive information in this regard.
Contains: Devil’s claw, Deep Sea Kelp, Meadowsweet, Gingko leaf, Gotu Kola, MSM, Turmeric and Glucosamine Sulphate, all recognised natural treatments for canine & feline arthritis.
Rebound contains a blend of herbs and nature-identical substances that complement each other to promote the relief and healing of canine arthritic conditions.
Start by switching your fur kid to natural raw cuisine. Once your fur kids transitioned to raw, typically between 4 and 6 weeks, introduce the Honeyvale Rebound Arthritis Relief Support into the diet.
These can be used in conjunction with conventional therapies. The natural treatments are widely used with variable success but have not been thoroughly investigated and proven at this time.
As with any condition, the most healthful natural diet will improve the pet’s overall health.
