Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the process of joint cartilage  degeneration.

  • It is the most common joint disorder in dogs
  • It is progressive
  • Chronic
  • Inflammatory

It starts as lameness, limping upon exertion, pain and then leads to a more sedentary lifestyle for your pet because you don’t want to stress them and cause more pain.

If not addressed your pet can have long term joint damage, weight gain due to lack of activity and pain.

Anti-inflammatory drugs can help as well as adding coconut oil to food or glucosamine supplements.  We also have companion laser therapy available that promotes blood flow to the the joints and gets your pet back to more activity with less pain medications.
