Dog after the hunt.

After hunting all day with your four legged buddy. Do you give your dog anything for running miles all day? Aspirin? Or just water and good soft bed? Have a 6 month lab and curious. Thank you

A younger dog shouldn't need anything but as they get older (6+yrs) they will start to show signs of stiffness and arthritis. I gave my older dogs rimadyl. It's a prescription med for arthritis and pain.

I use these on my dogs when they start getting older and work hard.  Usually give them 2 or 3 if they've hunted hard.  It's like taking 3-5 years off of them.
