Osteoarthritis in dogs is a common, progressive and painful condition which affects 1 in 5 dogs aged 7 or older.  The good news is that you and your vet can do a lot to help ease the pain and improve your dog’s quality of life.


Does your dog have any of these signs?

·        Difficulty getting up after a rest in the morning

·        Difficulty climbing stairs or into the car

·        Reduced enjoyment of walks or games

·        Becoming tired more easily

·        Lameness

·        Subdued and unenthusiastic attitude


If your dog is showing any of these signs ask the vet to examine your dog.  The vet will be able to tell you if arthritis is present and advise on the best management program for your dog.


Call one of our staff today on 01922 682 520 to make your appointment.

Look forward to seeing you soon.
