Osteoarthritis Management and Care of The Elderly Dog:

  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is thought to effect up to 4 out of 5 geriatric dogs, and is the leading cause of premature euthanasia. As our dogs age, cartilage and other structures within the joints start to degenerate, leading to pain and compensatory issues.

  • The process is a destructive cycle, leading common symptoms associated with old age: stiffness, reluctance to move or go for walks, difficulty navigating the house, aggression and depression.

  • Old dogs are often labelled as "just grumpy" or "just stiff" or "just old"... but there are many things that we can do to improve their quality of life.
