What can we give a small chihuahua (that is 15 years old) who suffers from hip-joint pain and arthritis?

Dear Sara,

I would feed a grain free dog food. According to Chinese food therapy the protein choice would be chosen upon it's thermal qualities. If your dog is warm and seeks cool places then you would want cooling foods such as fish or turkey. Beef is neutral. If the dog seeks warm places then feeding warming foods such as chicken, venison, or lamb would be good choices. Hopefully the pet store has samples so you can try them before buying. Small dogs tend to be very particular about their food.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
