When it’s cold your pet’s osteoarthritis symptoms may become worse. Make sure they have a thick, warm bed, out of draughts, to sleep and rest.
Try to avoid anything that might risk injury to a pet that is less mobile, such as jumping from high places or using stairs. Injuries can accelerate the progression of osteoarthritis.
