Joint Struggles!

Joint Struggles!

As pets age, joint issues tend to arise affecting their mobility and overall well-being. The key to avoiding this would be developing complete and balanced meals that are packed with nutrients that can support healthy cartilage while also promoting skeletal and joint function.

All pets are prone to joint problems but some are more prone to others. These are the main contributing factors to joint issues:

  • Breed
  • Weight
  • Nutritional history
  • Abnormal joint development 
  • Injuries

Arthritis is a common joint problem among dogs and cats. The symptoms can be difficult to spot but over time it may worsen if not addressed early:

  • Lethargy (increased time sleeping and resting, slow pacing, reduced interactions)
  • Poor mobility (stiffed movements, struggling to climb stairs, avoiding jumping, difficulty standing up) 
  • Temperament changes (easily irritable when handled or around people, excessive licking and chewing of joints)

Osteoarthritis is another common form of arthritis, it is known as the gradual wear and tear of the cartilage.

Vitamins & supplements are a great addition to their diet that can help relief symptoms of arthritis from early to late stages and also prevent arthritis from occurring.
