Moving Beyond Osteoarthritis Pain

Osteoarthritis, crippling pain, is not a necessary reality of the canine aging experience.

By most estimates, 25% of all dogs (regardless of age) are affected by OA, and possibly 60% of dogs will show x-ray evidence of the disease in their lifetime. As a result, this makes OA the most common chronic disease they face.

Once a dog is diagnosed with Osteoarthritis (OA), it is essential to understand that the focus is management rather than cure. Success means maximizing your dog's comfort and function while minimizing pain.
