Osteoarthritis, a common condition in aging pets, causes joint pain and stiffness, impacting their mobility and overall well-being. Recognizing signs such as reluctance to climb, limping, or changes in behavior is crucial for early intervention. Left untreated, arthritis can lead to chronic pain and decreased quality of life. Pet owners should be attentive to subtle changes in their pet’s movements and activity levels, seeking veterinary care promptly. With appropriate management, including medication, weight control, and lifestyle adjustments, owners can enhance their pets’ comfort and maintain an active, fulfilling life. Early detection and proactive measures are key to mitigating the impact of osteoarthritis.
