Signs of Joint Issues
As pets age, they become susceptible to joint-related problems. Osteoarthritis in pets is the leading cause of mobility issues followed closely by hip (or, other) dysplasia. Common signs include:
- Reluctance to walk, jump, or, engage in regular activities
- Difficulty climbing
- Some difficulty rising after rest
- Refusing food or water
- Changes in attitude
- Sensitivity to touch
- Joint Pain
- Inability to groom themselves
Pet owners don’t have to turn to potentially harmful prescription drugs for their dog or cat’s joint care.
When we notice the warning signs in our pets, we take them to a trusted veterinarian. In the past, they were quick to prescribe popular NSAID’s (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). The FDA has released information concerning the use of NSAID’s for pets stating that they have been connected to 22,000 cases of illness in dogs. It has become evident that these anti-inflammatories can cause serious side effects and adverse reactions, which would alarm most pet parents. Long-term use is not advised. Veterinarians now recommend glucosamine supplements as the first course of action for both dogs and cats, advising pet owners of the benefits of glucosamine and chondroitin supplements.
