Dogs- Limping, slow to rise, hesitant to climb stairs, walking very slowly, sleeping often, and has had weight gain. If your dog is experiencing any of the following for more than a couple weeks, then you may want to bring him/her to the veterinarian for proper diagnosing.† This will allow you to begin an improvement plan right away.
Here are some key signs that your cat may suffer from arthritis:
Cat- Lower activity level, hesitant to jump onto things, has accidents outside the litter box, and muscle loss. All of these changes in your catís behavior/normal activities could be signs that he/she is suffering from some type of arthritis. Once again, be sure to take your pet to the veterinarian to get a proper diagnosis before beginning arthritis treatment.
When your pet is diagnosed with any type of arthritis it can be heart breaking, but do not jump to conclusions. There are many ways that you can deal with arthritis. Many people prefer the all- natural method, before starting their pets on potentially harmful medications. The first thing you want to do is make sure that your pet is not over weight, and if they are, start working on a healthier more stable diet. It is important that you keep a close eye on your petís weight gain. If your pet is overweight, the extra weight can be detrimental to your petís arthritis progression. †Along with a healthy diet, should come light exercise. Short walks for dogs and more play time with cats. Once you have kept a close eye on your petís weight, you should try natural supplements that aim to protect your petís joints and cartilage.
