At Dunloggin Animal Hospital, we are aware that there are many ailments that our pets suffer that are similar to human ailments. Think about all the aches and pains you suffer from on a daily basis. Perhaps you suffer from low back pain, shoulder pains, neck stiffness, joint pain and stiffness, or anything like that. Among all the other aches and pains, joint stiffness is a common problem.
Our cats and dogs are animals, but they still feel the same issues. It may even be worse for them because they walk around on four legs all day, hunched over. They also don’t know how to express their pain or know ways to fix the problem. As pet owners, it’s important for us to learn signals that our pets are suffering. If your pet is suffering from joint stiffness, they may be appearing less active, have trouble walking up and down stairs, not want to play, or even not have much of an appetite. If you believe your pet is suffering from joint pain, it’s a good idea to get them help.
There are treatments available. There are cosequin supplements made for cats and dogs, in their respective formulas. Find out more information about these treatments so that your animal can get back to playing, eating, and being more active.
If your pet is in need of care, Dunloggin Veterinary Hospital is more than happy to help. You can call our office at 410-465-6218.
