Arthritis in Dogs and Cats


Are you giving your cat or dog non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as Rimadyl or Deramaxx? Is your pet showing signs of arthritis or joint pain such as slowing down, difficulty getting up or stiffness? Arthritis and joint pain in cats and dogs can be kept to a minimum using supplements, an anti-inflammatory diet and using holistic treatment such as acupuncture and chiropractic care. If your pet shows any of the symptoms of arthritis or joint pain, it is important to bring your pet to the veterinarian for a diagnoses. Your veterinarian will manipulate the limbs and assess your pet’s neurological response, joint mobility and areas of pain. XRAYS (and additional testing such as an ultrasound) may be necessary to determine the cause for your pet’s discomfort.

Nutritional supplements support the bones and joints, helping them withstand physical wear and tear due to aging. Regular use can help reduce pain as well as the need for pain medications. Waiting until your pet is already showing symptoms of discomfort can lead to disappointing results, as an early start helps ensure your pet develops healthy bones, joints and ligaments. Active big dogs especially, should be taking joint support from an early age.
