Arthritis Treatment for Pets

As your pet reaches its golden years, problems concerning their bones, joints and ligaments may become more common. For many pets, arthritis is a natural part of growing old. Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis. But, you don’t have to worry! With the help of our team, we can keep your pet as comfortable and strong as possible, despite their diagnosis. Please call us at 613.543.2812 to learn more about our arthritis services and to schedule your next appointment.

What are the signs of arthritis in dogs/cats?

The earliest signs of arthritis that you may notice is that your pet may have trouble performing certain tasks or actions that they previously had no issues with (e.g. climbing upstairs, running alongside you). As the chronic condition progresses, more pronounced symptoms can begin to appear such as limping, trembling, yelping when touched, stiff/swollen joints and even lameness in one or more of their limbs.

What is the treatment for arthritis in pets?

First things first – please contact us and schedule an appointment. Only then can we properly diagnose the type of arthritis that your pet has, and the best course of action to manage it. A combination of medical prescriptions, physical rehabilitation, as well as environmental and behavioural modifications to your home all go hand-in-hand in treating arthritis.
