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:
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.
