I'll try doing the massages and see how that goes. Currently is is curled up under the heating pad glaring at me.
Could I try horse liniment as well? I use it on my joints after work and it helps. I just don't know if it's safe for him.
My main concern is that dogs like to lick themselves and they might ingest an ingredient that will harm them or it's plain toxic to them.
For example: lavender oil ingested by dogs can make them sick but, some pet shampoos have lavender scents which is "fine" since it's used marketed that way and used topically- then, rinsed off. Is it "safe"? Personally, I don't purchase lavender scented things; just in case (why risk it?).
I think the hot bath/soak and hot water bottle should help on it's own.
As far as Beneful goes: I've never fed any of my pets with dry foods but, I know mostly (if not) all dry dog foods contain excessive amounts of grains and other tidbits that don't have great/any nutritional value. If anything- it's practically junk and filler. This is just my opinion though.
Best of luck.
