Dog Arthiritis

Dog Arthritis

Dog Arthritis is slow to detect and difficult to diagnose.  Unfortunately dogs cannot describe their symptoms to us.  We can only observe their behaviour pattern and remain alert in case it changes.

Canine arthritis does not only affect older dog but younger dogs also.  It is a degenerative joint disorder.  Cats can also be affected.

Cold weather and damp conditions can worsen the symptoms and it can be very painful.


To treat Dog Arthritis naturally:

Natural therapies include treatments including acupuncture, massage, cold laser therapy, herbs, homeopathics, and nutritional supplements. These therapies work  for both preventing as well as treating arthritis in dogs and cats.

How do conventional veterinarians treat arthritis?

They rely on the daily administration of NSAID medications (NSAID stands for Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). While they can be effective in decreasing pain, they are associated with a number of side effects including damage to the kidneys, liver, and stomach and intestines. In some cases they can make the arthritis WORSE.  The right treatment will depend on your pet.  More
