SIGNS OF JOINT PAIN AND HOW TO HELP
Arthritis is one of the most common ailments in middle-aged to older pets. Even younger dogs and cats can suffer from arthritic bones, just like humans. Arthritis causes changes within the affected joints that are painful. This pain is responsible for many of the signs associated with arthritis. Here are some common signs.
You may see your pet limping or favoring one or more of his legs, depending on which legs and which joints are arthritic. In some cases, the limp may seem worse when your pet first rises and become less noticeable as your pet “warms up” by moving around.
Your pet may also become reluctant to do things that were previously easy. For example, your dog may find it hard to get into and out of the car or may have difficulty going up and down stairs that were previously easy. Arthritic cats may stop jumping onto countertops, perches and other high areas because of the pain and discomfort.
Arthritic changes can occur in different parts of the spine. These changes may result in a sore neck, an abnormal posture with a “hunch” in the back, or lameness of the hind legs.
Your pet may get tired easily. For dogs, this could mean shorter walks that are more painful. Your pet may spend more time sleeping and/or resting.
Your arthritic animal may become irritable. They can snap and bite when approached or handled, especially if the petting or handling happens in a way that increases their pain.
Arthritic pets often develop muscle atrophy or dying off of the muscle tissue due to inactivity and decreased use of the muscles. If your pet has atrophied muscles in their legs they will have a leg that looks thinner than a normal leg.
Licking, chewing & biting
Pets with arthritis may also begin to lick, chew or bite at painful body areas. This can cause inflamed skin and hair loss over the affected areas.
