20% of pets will suffer from degenerative osteoarthritis in their lives, some starting as early as one year of age. Pet arthritis is the number one cause of chronic pain in the dog and cat. The condition itself is the result of long term stresses and instability of a joint, either as a result of old injury or of natural development of the joint in that pet. While surgery may be able to help in some situations, sometimes the degeneration of the joint cannot be reversed, and treatment focuses on preventing progression of damage.
