Joint Disease in Pets

Joint disease is common in pets and can be caused by age-related changes, injuries, developmental abnormalities and over-exercise. It leads to pain and debilitation.

Dogs with joint disease may appear lame, unwilling to exercise, lethargic or even aggressive if they are very painful. Cats tend to be less mobile, interactive and have difficulty in moving around.

Joint supplements play an important role in the management of joint disease, and there are many available.

If you are concerned that your pet might be suffering from joint disease or would like to discuss options available please contact us and make an appointment to discuss with one of our vets on 01291 672637.
