Animals can experience acute injuries and ongoing illnesses in the same way humans can, which is why it’s important to monitor your pets regularly for any sign of discomfort. Realizing that your pet is in pain can be upsetting but getting them the right help can alleviate their suffering and give you peace of mind. To get started, take a look at these top tips for easing your pet’s chronic pain now:

Get a Treatment Plan in Place

If you suspect that your pet is experiencing pain or discomfort, seek help from a veterinarian right away. A vet will be able to assess your pet and run investigative tests if it’s necessary to do so. Once a diagnosis has been made, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about which treatments could be beneficial for your pet. This might include surgery and medication, as well as other treatments, such as physiotherapy or even complementary therapies like osteopathy. 

Make Home Life Easier

When a pet has chronic pain, they might find it harder to get around. By making changes at home, you can ensure that they’re as comfortable as possible. With Pawpedics pet beds, for example, your pet has the added support they need when they’re relaxing or resting. An orthopedic pet bed relieves pressure on the joints and eases muscle tension, which can significantly reduce discomfort. Similarly, elevated bowls can be an effective way to make it easier for your pet to eat and drink when they’re experiencing chronic pain or long-term health issues.

Try Animal Massage

If you’ve ever experienced a physical injury or ongoing pain, you’ll know just how helpful massage can be. However, it isn’t just humans who can benefit from massage: animals can too. By learning how to give your pets massage therapy, you can help to minimize their discomfort. From training classes to online guides, there are a variety of resources out there for pet owners who want to provide the best care for their animals. 

Adjust Exercise Regimes

Depending on your pet’s condition and pain levels, exercise could be an important way of maintaining mobility and easing pain. Conversely, too much exercise could have the opposite effect. Before changing your pet’s routine, seek advice from a veterinarian. Once you know how much exercise your pet should be getting and what type of exercise is suitable, you’ll be able to adjust your day-to-day routine accordingly. 

Spend More Time with Your Pet

Pets love to spend time with their owners and some extra TLC will be much appreciated when they’re feeling out of sorts. Whether you spend a little longer playing with toys or you snuggle up with your pet on the sofa more often, spending more time with your pet will go a long way to helping them feel better. 

Caring for a Pet with Chronic Pain

It’s undoubtedly upsetting for owners when their pets are unwell or in pain but there are steps you can take to minimize your pet’s discomfort and enhance their life. With the right professional advice and lifestyle changes, you can transform your pet’s comfort levels, boost their mood and reduce long-term pain.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
