What to Do For Cat Hip and Joint Problems

Saturday, January 20, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

As cats age, their joints and hips get stiff just as ours do. If your cat was once able to jump up on your couch but is no longer able to, this may be the cause. At 18 1/2, my cat Molly has a host of medical problems, the medicine in my cabinet just keeps growing. Molly is stiff and sometimes has difficulty with her hind legs. Because of her kidney disease, she has lost muscle mass affecting her front and back legs. I have decided to add Glucosamine and Chondroitin to her medication list. I give .50ml per day and mix it in with her food.

My cat Molly has lost a lot of weight and is  down to about 61/2 pounds so I give her half the dosage. If your cat is 10 or more pounds, 1 ml per day of liquid Glucosamine and Chondroitin  added to her diet may help.

We do whatever is necessary to help our little friends!
