Is your dog suffering from arthritis ? 

The most common form of arthritis (joint disease) that affects animals is osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD).


Osteoarthritis can have many causes – previous injuries (i.e. torn cruciate ligaments), obesity, developmental defects (i.e. hip and elbow dysplasia), previous infections, any thing that causes damage to or excessive wear of the joint cartilage.  Large breeds of dogs are more likely to develop arthritis. In many cases it is considered as wear and tear and a normal part of the aging process. 


Joints that are affected by arthritis have damage to and a loss of joint cartilage. As a result of this damage there is a reduced cushioning, a reduced range of movement of the joints they eventually become thickened and painful.
