Arthritis Physical Aid Selection Guide 
Products for your Senior Dog
There are many ways you can help a dog with arthritis feel more comfortable and have better mobility. Depending upon the location and severity of your dog's arthritis, one or more of the following may be helpful.
Products for your Senior Dog

Quilted Super Deluxe BedOrthopedic dog beds
An orthopedic dog bed provides good insulation and support, and makes it easier for your dog to get up. These dog beds with convoluted (egg-carton shaped) orthopedic foam distribute weight evenly and reduce pressure on joints. The Quilted Super Deluxe Dog Bed or Deluxe Double Thick Orthopedic Pad are both very good choices. For help in selecting an orthopedic bed see our Orthopedic Dog Bed Comparison Chart.
Wrought Iron FeedersElevated dog feeders and waterers
When even eating and drinking can be a chore for an arthritic dog, elevated dog feeders and raised waterers can be the answer. Several water-filled feeders placed around your home will also help ensure your arthritic dog will maintain her hydration.
ComfortLift CarrierLifts
Lifts like the ComfortLift Carrier provide extra help for dogs that have difficulty rising or walking. They are easy to use and comfortable for you and your dog.
Deluxe Telescoping Pet RampRamps and steps
Ramps and steps help dogs that have difficulty jumping into cars or onto the bed. There are a variety of styles available. For help in choosing one see our Ramps and Steps Comparison Chart.
Padded Harness & LeadDog harnesses
Dog harnesses are much better than collars for dogs with arthritis of the neck or back. They allow dogs to have much needed daily walks without the risk of further injury.
Tweed Chenille SweaterSweaters and jackets
Outdoors, try one of many sweaters or jackets for dogs that can help keep the heat in and the cold out.
Life preservers
Swimming is an excellent exercise for dogs with arthritis or other joint problems. Dog life preservers or flotation devices can help dogs who enjoy swimming feel more secure.
