Signs of Arthritis:

  •  Stiffness or swelling of the joints
  • Hesitation to run, jump, or climb (cats)
  • Favoring certain limbs when moving; obvious stiffness/difficulty walking
  • Dogs–groaning after getting up from a long rest
  • Cats–house soiling due to difficulty climbing in/out of the litter box

Prevention & Treatments:

1) Exercise: Consistent daily exercise is important to maintain normal muscle mass and support for affected joints.  Low impact and low intensity exercise is best

2) Diet: Feed the appropriate amount of calories, and avoid giving too many treats.

3) Supplements:  Several supplements are available that can help reduce inflammation and provide joint support including Dasuquin, Cosequin, fish oil, and Duralactin.

4) Acupuncture: improves circulation and decreases inflammation in many conditions, including arthritis.  Acupuncture has promise for helping any pet that has a reversible or painful condition, and can also minimize the potential need for certain medications

5) Cold Laser Therapy:  Laser light penetrates into targeted tissues stimulating cells to produce ATP, which fuels cell repair and regeneration.  The laser simply put “jump starts” the healing process.

Together with your veterinarian, you can create a plan that will ease your pet’s pain without diminishing quality of life.
