My Dog Has Stiff Joints and Is Finding It Hard To Get Out of Bed. What Should I Do?

If your dog is finding it hard to get out of bed, there are various ways you can help.

In summary, help your dog by:

  • Providing a good orthopedic dog bed - this will reduce soreness
  • Get your dog on good joint supplements - this will improve mobility and comfort
  • Use a lifting harness to help them off the floor - this will reduce pressure and joint discomfort

Firstly, make sure that your dog has a supportive, comfortable, orthopaedic bed to help cushion the joints and alleviate the discomfort of stiff, sore joints.

Rear Dog harnesses or support slings are a simple way to help your dog up from the bed. Both mobility aids have handles which allow you to take most of your dog’s weight and lift them up.

You can also use them both for walking, climbing up and down stairs, or getting in and out of the car.

They’re all designed so your dog can toilet normally while using them. 

A rear dog harness or support sling is a simple and effective way to help your dog up from their bed, without straining your own back.

Find good joint supplements and add them to your dog's daily diet.
