We all like to think of our pets as healthy and happy. A responsible pet parent always has an eye on each pet to make sure they are healthy and happy. I think we need to be aware of the 10 Common Symptoms of Arthritis in Dogs and Cats since our pets do develop symptoms at various ages.

How many times have you heard stories of experiences from your vet or from your friends about “I wish they had brought the pet in sooner.” We all go through it.

Keeping this post short………….

Here are 10 Common Symptoms of Arthritis in Dogs and Cats by Dr. Andrew Jones, DVM

  • Less energy/less active
  • Slow, stiff, or awkward movements
  • Limping or lameness
  • Crepitus ( cracking) when joints are flexed
  • Swollen joints- especially chronic cruciate injury
  • Whimpering or moaning when joints are touched, sometimes when sleeping
  • Excessive licking of joints
  • Withdrawn and sleeping longer
  • Difficulty climbing stairs or jumping into the car
  • Visible muscle loss on the rear legs

What can you as the pet parent do?

The TOP 3 ingredients to provide pain relief, decreased inflammation, and HELP rebuild some of the lost cartilage are Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM. They need to be in adequate amounts, and be absorbed by your dog or cat.

For Your Cats;


Should you buy some of this wonderful and healthful formula? Sure you should. But, we all need information before we decide. Please take a look at the information then decide. I am so amazed each time I see the contents. The supplements I take don’t have that much or that many good things in them.

And finally, yes it’s true. In the spirit of full disclosure I will tell you that should you choose to buy a sample of this powerful formula I will get a small commission from the seller. Good health to you and your pets and remember……….

“She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog (or your Cat). You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.”  ~~Unknown

    Regardless of the type of arthritis, the common symptoms for all arthritis disorders include varied levels of pain, swelling, joint stiffness, and sometimes a constant ache around the joint(s).
