Jumping and your dog’s joints

Saturday, December 10, 2011

If you have a small dog, you make think that it’s cute when he jumps up onto y0ur lap. Letting him on the furniture is a bad idea. Not only will you have to vacuum your chair or sofa more often but it’s hard on you dogs joints.  It can cause an unexpected injury, especially in puppies or older dogs. It you want to cuddle with your little friend, pick him up by  hand and place him gently on your lap. You can also buy a set of pet stairs to help him climb up comfortably. Scaling stairs too often can also cause stress on your dog’s joints. You should buy a set that’s not too high or wide for your dog. Keep an eye on your pup when he’s up high. You don’t want him to fall and injure himself.

Remember, your pets count!
