[New Product] Gen7Pets Indoor Carpet Mini Ramp
Do you allow your pet on the furniture? For some pet parents, coming home to snuggle on the sofa with a beloved pet is the highlight of the day. Getting on and off of furniture is easy for us, but it takes a lot of effort for a dog or cat to jump so far. After all, few of us could ever jump on a surface that is as tall (or taller) than we are! Years of strenuous jumping can take a toll on your pet’s joints. The Gen7Pets Indoor-Carpet Mini Ramp makes getting on and off sofas, chairs, and beds easier on your pet’s joints to help ward off joint damage and arthritis.
Jumping is your pet’s superpower
Admittedly, jumping isn’t the only superpower your pet might have. Consider your pet’s amazing sense of smell that can root out the tiniest morsel of food that accidentally fell on the floor, or how some pets recognize the sound of the family car before it even pulls in the driveway. Still, the ability to jump higher and farther than any human ever could (proportionally speaking) is truly remarkable. In fact, healthy dogs can jump as far as one body length high while cats can jump between 5 to 6 body lengths!
Of course, this jumping superpower can be abused. Cats who can so easily reach counter tops and even the top of the refrigerator will likely do so with or without your consent. Dogs who can jump a yard fence may be quite proud to show you how it’s done. In cases like these, pet parents may need to train their pets to use their amazing jumping skills only where and when appropriate.
How to protect your pet’s joints
Arthritis in pets is much more common than many pet parents may think. In fact, over 90% of senior cats have arthritis, while 1 out of every 5 dogs over the age of 7 has arthritis. Daily jumping can result in joint damage, regardless of your pet’s size or age. This is why joint supplements are frequently recommended by veterinarians as part of a pet’s regular care regimen. Ingredients like Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, and Perna Canaliculus are considered to be effective at protecting joint structures and function for improved mobility.
Pets with painful arthritis or osteoarthritis can benefit from joint pain medication, which is often prescribed by veterinarians to manage arthritis pain and inflammation.
If your pet often sleeps on a hard floor, you may wish to discourage this as it can be tough on elbows, knees, hips, and the spine. An orthopedic or memory foam pet bed is a great way to keep your pet warmer and more comfortable while taking stress off joints and pressure points.
Pets who are overweight may experience joint pain as a result. Establishing regular exercise and play time, as well as switching to pet food that’s formulated for weight loss, can help your pet get fit and relieve stress on joints.
You can also help protect your pet’s joints by supplying an easier way on and off furniture with pet steps or ramps. This will significantly reduce the number of times your pet has to jump in a day.
