Did you know 90% of cats over 12 years old have some form of degenerative joint disease?
Osteoarthritis, often referred to just as arthritis, is a painful disease caused by wear and tear of a joint. It makes movement difficult and sore.
Cats often hide pain, and usually do not limp or cry out with arthritis. This means arthritis in cats is frequently missed. Getting annual check-ups with your vet is the best way to make sure your cat’s joints are monitored, so you can pick up arthritis as soon as it develops.
If your cat has arthritis you can make them more comfortable by employing simple strategies, and planning the best treatment for your cat with your vet.
