ARTHRITIS IN DOGS
How to recognise it, manage it and treat it.
Arthritis is very common in older dogs and may be difficult to see initially. It can also affect much younger dogs from the age of two or less.
Ask yourself the following:
Is my dog slowing down on walks?
is my dog reluctant to jump into the car or onto the sofa?
Does my dog find going up the stairs a problem?
