Osteoarthritis is a common disease causing progressive degeneration of your pet’s joints, which can cause pain, reduce walking, activity and mobility, and even cause changes in behaviour and temperament.
The incidence of osteoarthritis significantly increases with age
In dogs, larger breeds like Labradors, Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds and Rottweilers, are at increased risk of developing osteoarthritis
Overweight pets face an increased risk
Joint injuries or surgery increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis
DOES MY PET HAVE OSTEOARTHRITIS?
If your best friend has any of the following symptoms they may be suffering osteoarthritis
An active pet is a happy pet. In the past osteoarthritis symptoms were mostly treated by pain killers to temporarily relieve pain and inflammation. Today there are other options. By actively maintaining joint health and also stimulating joint repair to restore damaged joints, you can help your best friend to live a more active, more comfortable and longer life.
