Osteoarthritis in pets

The vast majority of our pets suffer from osteoarthritis as they age. Unfortunately, they do not often show us obvious signs of the pain they live with, but it’s there!

Most often, they will lose muscle mass and limit their activities rather than whining and limping. You will notice that they become less active, jumping less on the couch and beds, hesitating to take the stairs and having trouble getting up. In most cases, maintaining a healthy weight and adding joint supplements can relieve them tremendously.

For more advanced cases, prescription treatments may be implemented to improve their quality of life. You can visit us at the clinic for an assessment of your pet’s joint health and discuss the best relief options.
