Recognize the signs that show if your dog is suffering from arthritis.

Recognize the signs that show if your dog is suffering from arthritis.

  1. Stiffness of any leg or hindquarters – especially when the dog is first rising from sleeping. They often warm out of it as they move around.

  2. Slowing down. It hurts to move, so arthritic dogs often sleep more and lose their desire to run, play or even go for walks.

  3. Yelping when touched.

  4. Swelling around a joint.

  5. Avoiding stairs and jumping onto furniture.

  6. Favoring a leg or limping on it.
