Osteoarthritis in Dogs

OE ebook

Arthritis Consultation


(Osteo) Arthritis can develop for lots of different reasons. Injury, surgery, conditions such as hip/elbow dysplasia, cruciate ligament, luxating patella or natural wear and tear as dogs get older.  Arthritis can happen at any age - even young dogs.

You may be noticing your dog is reluctant to come up stairs, jump onto sofa or car, getting up and down is more of a struggle.  Please don't leave it too long -  arthritis is a progressive condition, but we can help slow it down and help them feel and move better.

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.
