WHAT IS OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA)?
Did you know senior pets suffer from pain and discomfort caused by Osteoarthritis? Even our slight weather changes can make it difficult for them to get around. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease that affects people as well as dogs. OA can be as painful for our dogs as it is for us. In healthy joints, a slippery tissue called cartilage cushions the ends of the bones in the joints. With OA, cartilage breaks down, causing pain and swelling. As OA gets worse, bone spurs can form, causing more pain and joint damage. When this happens, your dog may become less active or show signs of stiffness when getting up. However, OA can be difficult to recognize, and your dog may not show any signs of OA. That’s why it’s important to talk to your veterinarian today about keeping your dog active and youthful. The earlier you start the better chance you have of bringing out the puppy inside him.
