Arthritis in Dogs

Arthritis affects one in every five adult dogs and is one of the most common sources of chronic pain that veterinarians treat.

 

Early Diagnosis and Treatment is the key

 

How do you know if it’s arthritis? Your dog can’t explain what’s wrong with them, so it’s important to watch their non-verbal clues closely and take even subtle changes seriously.

 

Signs that your dog may have arthritis:

  • Favouring a limb
  • Difficulty sitting or standing
  • Sleeping more
  • Seeming to have stiff or sore joints
  • Hesitancy to jump, run or climb stairs
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased activity or less interest in play
  • Attitude or behaviour changes
  • Being less alert

If your dog seems to have any of these symptoms take them to your veterinarian for an evaluation.

 

The best thing to do for your dog in managing their arthritis is to get a diagnosis and start a treatment plan as soon as possible.

 

THE DOG STUDIO offer tailored treatments for arthritis with excellent results using a combination of spa, swimming pool and underwater treadmill we strengthen the muscles around their joints, which reduces stress on the joint itself, this is probably the best treatment for arthritis along with a healthy diet and pain relief devised by your vet

 

The pleasure we get from helping dogs with arthritis is enormous you can almost see the relief on their faces as they enter the warm water and the weight is taken off their limbs and of course while they are swimming they are building up other  muscles including the heart which has got to be good.

 

We offer the first session for free this allows you and your dog to come and meet us to see what we are all about and discuss the best treatment for your dog.
