Generally arthritis is worse at the start of the day and improves as the day progresses - the joint warms up and hence loosens up.
Symptoms of arthritis may include:
- Pain or stiffness when getting up or down;
- Your pet cannot climb steps anymore;
- "Laziness" on walks may be arthritic pain
Anti-inflammatory Treatments act by providing pain relief. However, they have little effect on cartilage degradation - the cause of arthritic pain.
