Hello! As you can see from my pics I am getting gray and my mommy wants to start taking preventive measures. She has been doing a lot of reading on magnetic therapy and was wondering if any other pups have tried it. What other options are out there?dog

Havent heard of magnetic therapy. shrug

You can adjust feedings and ensure good excercise.

There are also supplememnts for joint health and such.

I think its also important to get a complete vet exam.

And btw you are sooooo cute!!!

I focus on general wellness for life, unless there is a specific issue you're seeing. Glucosamine and condroitin supplements are always good preventative care for seniors since you can only protect joints, not rebuild them.

There's no point - and sometimes it's even harmful - to treat conditions that don't exist. General things like massage and Ttouch, physical therapy (excellent info/online store) to keep good muscle tone... These are good for everyone. Seniors absolutely benefit, and I do them for my young dogs too. I have not heard of magnetic therapy specifically, but if it falls into that general wellness category and sessions are reasonable on your wallet, then go for it!

I live to dig

Good nutrition is the best thing you can do for your dog.
