Inflammation is a Primary Source of Pain for Arthritic Cats

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • One in four dogs in the U.S. develops osteoarthritis; over 90 percent of kitties age 10 and older have arthritis in at least one joint
  • Inflammation is a primary source of pain in arthritic patients, and must be well-managed to keep pets comfortable and mobile
  • The majority of arthritic pets are also overweight, and excess fat is a significant contributor to inflammation
  • Processed pet food is a primary cause of obesity in pets, so arthritic dogs and cats, in particular, should be fed an anti-inflammatory diet
  • A customized oral supplement protocol and natural therapies such as water exercise and acupuncture should also be part of a multimodal approach to effectively managing arthritis in dogs and cats
