JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. Glucosamine and chondroitin are usually the go-to supplements in helping with arthritis in dogs. These supplements can help protect and rebuild the joint and may help reduce some minor inflammation. However, if your dog is experiencing pain or swelling still after supplementation, you may need to use a short-term treatment of a dog-safe pain medication. Your vet can prescribe a medication safe for use in dogs if this is needed.
