Latest Blog On ARTHRITIS
18th September 2016
Arthritis is very common amongst older dogs. In fact, 1 in 5 Australian dogs suffer from arthritis, or osteoarthritis as it is known, at some point during their lives.
You’ll notice that your dog is slower to get onto their feet (especially in the morning or in cooler weather) and will be far less active than they used to be. It’s often very hard to tell if your dog is suffering from arthritis. Even though it’s very painful, your dog won’t show much sign of complaint.
Exercise, weight control and anti-arthritic drugs can all lead to helping your dog overcome the pain of arthritis.
