My dog Jake has a tumor on his right foot that seems to have shrunk since he has been diagnosed with cancer. This is his only know health problem except for one or two fat tumors that his vet said aren't cancerous. However, when he lies down for a long period of time (which is a lot) and tries to get up, it looks like it is very hard for him to walk at first. Once he gets going, he's fine. Is it just stiff joints? He doesn't whimper or whine like he is in pain. I think it's gotten worse though. He's only about 10 or 11 years old. His coat is shiny and his skin is great, so could it just be his old age? How can I help him to feel better?

You can help him to feel better by starting him on Cosequin.
Within a few weeks he will be a lot better and much more comfortable.
