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.
