Home Remedies For Dogs And Cats With Arthritis

Could your cat or dog be in pain from arthritis? Pets hide their pain for as long as possible. By the time a pet vocalizes discomfort (from for example a sudden movement), the pet has already been experiencing a considerable amount of pain.  Pets in pain may pant, pace, not want to eat, become suddenly shy or aggressive and just not act like themselves.    Don't wait for your pet to vocalize their pain from arthritis.  If you notice any of these subtle signs below, be sure to check with your veterinarian right away.  The following signs can be symptoms of arthritis:
  • Difficulty or hesitation to sit down or get up
  • Difficulty jumping up or reluctance to climb stairs
  • Lameness in one or more limbs
  • Stiffness in the morning that improves as the day progresses
  • Subtle signs that the pet may not want to put weight on the limb
  • Sensitivity when touched in certain areas offers home remedies that contain well researched ingredients scientifically proven to help arthritis.  The products to use depend upon the size and progression of your pet's condition.
