While the geriatric population is affected more frequently than younger dogs, canine arthritis can begin at a surprisingly young age. As canine arthritis progresses, the management of decreased mobility and pain becomes increasingly more important and the success or failure of that management can become a matter of life and death. This article will present several strategies which can help ward off canine arthritis and reward you and your four-legged friends with long, healthy, active lives to enjoy deep into their geriatric years.

Canine Arthritis and Joints

Osteoarthritis is a gradual abnormal wear and tear of the joint surfaces which normally cushion and protect the bones of the joint. Osteoarthritis causes inflammation, pain and decreased range of motion. The wear and tear can be caused by a variety of source such as poor conformation, joint instability, obesity, injury to the cartilage or joint surfaces, or abnormal use of the joint. It is important to realize that a normally performing, uninjured joint that has congruent joint surfaces, will not become arthritic. However, even a micro-variances and incongruences can cause abnormal wear and tear of a joint and start the arthritic process.


Many dog breeds inherit abnormal joint structure, and therefore, are more prone to suffering the effects of arthritis early in life. For these dogs, healthy eating habits are even more important than for dogs with healthy joint conformation, and it is important to keep their weight down as low as possible to avoid under stresses on already dysfunctional joints. These dogs may also benefit from nutritional joint supplements very early in life. With other breeds, it is difficult or impossible to tell if any of the joints are abnormal until the dog begins showing signs of discomfort. However, weight management is a huge factor in contributing to osteoarthritis and can easily be manage throughout a dog’s life. For all breeds, there are some other universal strategies that can help delay or prevent  arthritic changes in the joints.

    I believe what you published was very logical. However, consider this,
    suppose you typed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to
    run your blog, but what if you added a headline to
    possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Prevent Canine Arthritis | Loving a Happy,
    Healthy Dog is kinda boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they
    create post headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve
    got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
