What is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a chronic joint disease that often occurs in older dogs. It is caused by the progressive breakdown of cartilage in the joints and can lead to pain and limited mobility.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Typical signs of osteoarthritis in dogs can include pain, limping, stiffness especially after lying down for long periods of time, and a decrease in general activity. A change in your dog's behavior can also be an indication.

Diagnosis of osteoarthritis

The diagnosis of osteoarthritis is made through a thorough examination by the veterinarian and imaging diagnostics such as X-rays or ultrasound. The different degrees of osteoarthritis can be determined precisely.

Treatment options

Treatment for osteoarthritis aims to relieve your dog's pain and improve his mobility. Drug treatments, physiotherapeutic measures and food that is gentle on the joints can help to increase your dog's well-being.

Prevention of osteoarthritis

A healthy and balanced diet, regular exercise that is gentle on the joints and regular health checks at the vet can help prevent osteoarthritis.
