Arthritis Services for Pets
Arthritis is a well-known illness in humans. Did you know that it can also develop in pets? The most common type of arthritis in pets is osteoarthritis. Some pets develop this disease because of their age, weight or history of injury or surgery. Even though there is no cure for the condition, your loyal companion doesn’t have to live in misery. At Langdon Veterinary Clinic, we work relentlessly to ensure your furry friend is pain-free and back on their feet despite their diagnosis.
What are the signs of arthritis in pets?
Your loyal companion will try to hide their discomfort in the early stages of the disease. You may notice them limping, becoming disinterested in walks or having difficulty walking/ standing. As your pet’s condition worsens, the signs are more noticeable. Once you notice any symptoms, your pet should be examined by a veterinarian immediately. The disease is much easier to treat and control in the early stages. To have your pet evaluated call 403.936.4571 and we will book an appointment at your earliest convenience.
What can be done for my pet who has arthritis?
