You may first notice arthritis in your dog or cat when they wake up with stiff joints, or struggling to jump on the couch. They may even be lethargic throughout the day. As our hairy companions age, activities that were once a breeze become an effort.

Your pet could be showing you some subtle symptoms in their daily activities that indicate they are experiencing some joint pain.

Unfortunately, arthritis is a common ailment seen in our middle aged and senior pets and it affects joints, causing pain and discomfort for both cats and dogs. It is also not uncommon for large and giant breeds of dog showing signs at a relatively young age.

There are a number of signs in your pet's behaviour to look out for:

Irritability - Arthritic animals can become aggressive when touched which may result in a bite or snap, especially if the petting increases their pain.
Slow-moving - Your pet may find it harder to get up of the ground and/or will not be able to jump on the couch like they used to.
Tiredness - Arthritic pets may tire more easily and be less likely to want to play with toys or exercise.
Limping - You could find your pet favoring a particular leg, depending on which leg and joint is arthritic.
Licking or biting joints - Pets affected with arthritis might begin to lick, chew or bite at the area affected by arthritis and joint pain.

If you notice your pet showing some of these signs, contact your vet and they can create a joint support management plan tailored to your pet's needs.
