Is your dog slowing down in their old age?
Are they looking a little bit stiff?
Do they walk with a bit of a limp?
Aging is a natural process which unfortunately our canine companions are not immune to. It is estimated that 80% of senior dogs over the age of 8 years have some degree of arthritis, making it one of the most commonly seen aliments in veterinary practice. If left untreated, arthritis can become a painful condition and in some cases even end in euthanasia.
Do not despair though, correct diagnosis and treatment can greatly increase the prognosis. A multi-modal approach can be adopted to successfully manage dogs with arthritis, increasing their lifespan and quality of life for many years.
