Joint issues such as arthritis and rehabilitation from injury are an exceptionally common occurrence in pets. As the cat or dog ages, degeneration to the capsule will occur which hold the adjacent bones together caused by general wear and tear to the joint. This is the cause of the condition, arthritis – the inflammation and friction in the joint cause’s pain and discomfort to the pet which, left untreated, will continue to deteriorate and cause suffering to the pet. Arthritis is very common in larger breeds of dog – such as Labradors, German Shepherds and Great Danes and therefore it is useful to think about preventative measures earlier on in their lives before the pain and discomfort starts to set in. It is not as widely known, but cats will also suffer from arthritis as they age, particularly those who have been very active when they were younger.
It is possible to help support your pet with medication from your veterinary surgeon such as anti-inflammatories or joint support however you can help your pet with some changes in the home too!
