Many pets suffer from feline arthritis and canine arthritis, whether it arises from developmental disease or from athletic injury and ongoing wear and tear.
Other factors such as genetics, infection and weight may contribute to the problem, but in the end, whatever the cause, the treatment regime is always the same. We manage the pain. This takes an individual and multimodal approach.
Treatments for pet arthitis
Nutraceuticals (4 Cyte Epiitalis®, chondroitin, glucosamine, and omega 3 supplements), Antinol PCSO-524®, weight management, regular exercise to sustain mobility, daily non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, weekly Synovan injections and monthly visits to our OA (osteoarthritis) clinics will help your arthritic companion live a quality life.
On-site Vet Physiotherapy is also available at The Strand Vet with Sarah Cruickshank and her Vet Physio team.
Injuries and structural abnormalities can predispose your dog and cat to arthritis, but early intervention can greatly lessen the severity and development of it.
Picking up the subtle signs of arthritis early allows time to slow the progression of the disease and start preventative treatments.
PCSO-524® is an all-natural anti-inflammatory supplement with amazing results in many of our arthritic patients in as early as 1-3 weeks.
