8 year old mini won't jump.

My 8 year old mini...has stopped jumping. He does well on walks, goes up and down stairs with no difficulty. He is eating and pooping well. He is a little bit of a "weenie"...doesn't like loud noises...even a stiff wind will scare him. I went to pick him up the other day and he yelped. Since then he will not jump up...used to be a jumping fool. I do notice that his tail is down often and he looks sad.

Not jumping

Sounds like your handsome little mini is in pain. It may well be arthritis or a muscle strain. Either get him checked out by a vet or try him on cod liver oil and Joint Aid supplement, both of which help the joints of older dogs- Max is on them both and has improved, although he can't jump in and out of the car any more, they have improved his mobility.
