Response-Customer: I bet there is chlorine in the water. I can give filtered water. My dog has heavy dark fur, so he gets hot easily outside and then seeks the cool tiles to lie on. Otherwise, he will lie on his dog bed or the rug. So I guess there are no extremes in that matter. Thanks so much for the advice.
Reply-Dr. Wilson: There are different kinds of arthritis. They can be affected by heat or cold. Diet can influence this. According to Chinese food therapy Chicken and lamb are warming foods and so would not be the best choice especially in the warmer months if the body already has heat and inflammation.
Fish and turkey are cooling. Beef is neutral. However one would not use a protein if the dog is allergic to it.
I would also give PROBIOTICS to help restore the intestinal flora that can be damaged by chlorine.
