Osteoarthritis is a complex disease whose clinical signs reflect different degrees of pain and inflammation. Your veterinarian and veterinary staff are the most qualified to advise you on the best options of medical treatment for your pet.
It’s critical in preventing joint disease. The heavier the animal, the greater the risk of overstressing joints that may age prematurely. Along with an exercise program, your veterinarian can give you nutritional advice and a suitable diet to improve your pet’s “body condition score.”
Veterinary physical rehabilitation is a non-invasive method for reducing pain, facilitating mobility and improving your pet’s quality of life. Treatment involves several techniques such as passive exercises, massage and baths.
Follow-up charts to record your pet’s physical parameters will help you to track his/her progress and encourage you to continue with your efforts.
