    I have noticed that my boy stanlie is a little stiff walking after having a sleep, does anyone know if he is likely to get arthritus because of this and weather me giving him cod liver oil will help him ??? thanks x

    Not sure why he would be stiff at such a young age, is it only recently?
    Glucosamine & Chondroitin are recommended for joints.

    i get mine from holland and barret...but any health shop will do.

    also...give him extra blankets or a thick quilt to sleep on...this will help him get comfier in the night.

    I'd pop him to the vets just to check it out, 2 is very young to be struggling already. Might have slipped something in his back or something? I give my oldies Green Lipped Mussel and I can't recommend it enough!!! It's been the making of my ancient old boy!!
