Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Introduction to Osteoarthritis in Dogs eBook

Untreated Osteoarthritis can be a painful condition that affects dogs young & old.  Age isn't a disease and dogs don't have to suffer or miss out.  

Causes can be through wear and tear and ageing, but more commonly due to underlying causes such as hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, cruciate ligament tear/rupture, luxating patella etc which unfortunately inevitably lead to Osteoarthritis.
