Is your dog showing symptoms of arthritis?
Your dog has just recently entered into her senior years and you know that arthritis tends to strike during this time. How can you tell if your pet is experiencing arthritis pain?
If your pet is beginning to have arthritis, you are likely to notice symptoms. These may vary from pet to pet, so keep in mind the habits of your individual little fur ball. Since arthritis impacts the joints, you are most likely to see your pet moving about differently. This may simply mean that she rests a bit more often and avoids certain things she knows to be painful, but it could also mean that she is going about regular movements in a different way to prevent joint pain from occurring or to lessen its impact on her routine. Your local Fox Chapel, PA vet clinic can offer additional advice.
