Osteoarthritis is a common, degenerative disease found in the joints of older dogs. This causes chronic pain and effects the hip, knee, spine and other joints. A dog that has arthritis will be reluctant to take long walks. and will have difficulty climbing stairs. He may not even be able to jump on a couch or bed. He may lick the affected joint and it may be sore to the touch.

Treatment includes nutritional supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates. This protects the cartilage covering the joints. These treatments work over time. For immediate relief, your veterinarian may recommend using a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. These drugs work quickly. If your pet’s arthritis pain still is not controlled by these medications, your vet may recommend analgesic pain medication. One of the keys in preventing this disease is to make sure that your dog is not overweight.

Never issue any pet medication yourself. Always let your vet do his job and prescribe the medication.
