Does Your Pet Suffer from Arthritis?

During the colder months of the year many of us would prefer to stay in bed under a warm doona than get out of bed and brave the single digit morning temperatures. But spare a thought for your pet. Not only can they really feel the cold too (especially if they don’t have a thick coat) but they may also be suffering from the effects of arthritis, which are exacerbated in winter and can really affect their quality of life. In fact, one in five dogs suffers from arthritis…and many cats also suffer undiagnosed. So what exactly causes arthritis, what are the symptoms… and what can you do to help your pet if they are diagnosed with arthritis?

How do I know if my pet needs to go to the vet?

Your pets are an important part of your family and they depend on you for food, shelter, love and medical attention, if required.
However unfortunately, if there is something wrong they just can’t tell you about it, and their survival instincts are to hide any symptoms that show weakness or illness.
So if you’re worried your pet is not feeling 100% or if you think they’re acting strangely, how do you know when it is an actual emergency?
And how can you tell whether your pet needs to go to the vet or not?
