Arthritis in Dogs
Your dog is getting older and has lost the energy he had as a puppy. Thatís normal and to be expected. But now, he just wonít play anymore. You can tell he wants to run around, follow you everywhere and jump and play, but you can also tell that heís in pain. He just lays there quietly. You can see the pain in his eyes, and the sadness of not being able to do the things a dog loves to do. You know something is wrong with your dog.
Arthritis attacks more than 1 in every 5 dogs. The US Humane Society estimates that there are more than 78 million pet dogs in the US. That means more than 15 million dogs live with arthritis.
Arthritis comes in a number of forms. It can be caused by an acute injury, long-term wear-and-tear, an infection or auto-immune disorder. Regardless of the cause, the primary result of arthritis is pain in a dogís joints.
There is a wide range of types of arthritis in dogs, and the number of things a dog owner can do to prevent arthritis in dogs. For dog owners with dogs that have arthritis, supplements like Osteo-Pet Professional Joint Formula are used to help alleviate the arthritis.
