Wellness is essential when it comes to dog health. We have 10 effective ways to reduce inflammation to keep your dog happy. From treat tweaks to new remedy adjustments, start your dog's journey to a life full of happiness and comfort.


1. Raise dog bowls to reduce any strain of the neck, hips, shoulders, or joints. This will allow your dog to swallow their food better and be more comfortable.



2. Make your home more adaptable for your dog by having ramps for going up and down, stairs for getting on furniture, and pet beds on the ground for an accessible place to sleep.


3. Use ginger to help with inflammation and circulation. Try out this easy ginger tea recipe.

Ingredients needed: ginger root & water.


  1. Peel your ginger.
  2. Slice your ginger into rounds.
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  4. Add sliced ginger into boiling water and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and allow the tea too steep for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Strain the tea to remove ginger pieces and let it cool before serving to your dog.



4. Gnawty Bites joint flex soft chew supplements to improve motion. These supplements have the ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin that help with joint cartilage formation and fluid breakdown.



5. Try fish oil to regulate the immune system. Fish oil gives your dog a boost so they can have more support towards inflammatory responses.



6. Turmeric will help act as an anti-inflammatory and relieve allergies. Joint, skin, and digestive health can also be supported. Turmeric powder can be used in your dog’s food, with water, or in supplements like chewable treats and oils.

9. Try a topical remedy to keep your dog’s skin healthy from inflammation. Coconut oil, aloe vera cream, oatmeal shampoo, and apple cider vinegar are all great natural products that can help with soothing itchy skin.



10. Massage your dog’s joints after an exercise to help keep everything relaxed. Try coconut oil or a natural healing lotion to keep them relaxed and calm during their massage while reducing dry skin.
