What is Osteoarthritis Management?
Osteoarthritis is characterized by the pain and limited mobility experienced when the cartilage and fluids that lubricate your dog's joints begin to deteriorate. This condition is one of the most common causes of chronic pain in pets and can be a major problem.

Customized Treatment Plans
When you bring your pet in for an osteoarthritis assessment your vet will perform a thorough physical examination, symptom evaluation, and recommend any diagnostic tests that may be necessary to determine the extent of your pet’s osteoarthritis.
Following your pet's assessment, we will work to devise and recommend a personalized plan to treat your pet's osteoarthritis and help manage the pain associated with this condition.
Whether a pet is healthy enough to take anti-inflammatory medications or requires a more holistic approach to restoring mobility and managing osteoarthritis pain, depends on the individual pet’s condition, medical history, and response to treatment.
Our team of veterinarians and rehabilitation professionals will work together to help you determine the best course of action for addressing your pet’s osteoarthritis and pain.
