Dog stiff after hunting

Postby Emailed Questions » Sun Nov 02, 2003 8:28 pm

I have a 2 year old English Springer Spaniel and after weekend of hard hunting he is very stiff even the next day I was told that aspirin was good to give a dog but then also was told it wasnt good to give a young dog is there something else that would help him the next day I plan to go on a 5 day pheasant hunt and would like to add something to my first aid kit for the dog
Thank for your insight

After a complete vet check up you may want to consider a supplement that contains joint health ingredients. Check these out. I have personally used them all, one at a time, and they all worked very well to releave joint pain causing limping. They are listed in NO specific order.

Check out Springtime Inc. at"

And also NUPRO Joint Support formula at:

They have a joint supplement and you can also give your dog a baby aspirin before and after. Or a real aspirin. No tylenol. I hope your dog is already in shape for hunting season. Carry water!

I guess the first question I would ask is this,,what kind of shape is the dog in? if he is not in good shape,,and then you run him hard,,it is a conditoining issue,,,if he is in good shape,,then I would go to your vet,,
rule out hips,,and go from there.....
