Welcome in!

As the restrictions are changing, we have made the step forward to allow one owner with one pet into the clinic for consulting. We are keeping restrictions on the amount of people in the waiting room, however we will still be providing outside seating for everyone’s convenience.

We very much appreciate all our lovely clients being understanding and patient with us through this strange time. We look forward to moving back to normal practises over the weeks/months to come.

Like humans, animals can suffer from arthritis. And like humans, the condition is not just reserved for older animals. Younger dogs can also suffer from this incredibly painful condition. So, what exactly is Osteoarthritis? As the name suggests – osteo refers to bone and ‘itis’ refers to inflammation. Arthritis is a degenerative disease, meaning if left untreated, it progressively gets worse over time. Arthritis is the biggest cause of chronic pain in dogs, affects at least 1 in 5 dogs and can have a significant impact on their quality of life.
Arthritis can be caused by many things, but generally it’s a result of wear and tear on the protective layer of the bone, called cartilage. This wear and tear creates inflammation within the joint which leads to pain and further degradation of the cartilage cells. However developmental problems in younger dogs can also lead to arthritis, such as hip and elbow dysplasia. It’s so important to ensure your young dog is a healthy weight (go easy on the treats!) and is fed a nutritionally complete, high quality diet. Look out for our next post where we reveal what the early signs are and how to treat them.
If you think your dogs is showing signs of osteoarthritis, please call us for a check up!

HAVE YOU MISSED SIGNS YOUR DOG MIGHT BE IN PAIN??
How good is it being a dog these days??! Walk in the morning, another one at lunch, and the hooman is bored again by 3pm and guess what! Yep! Another walk! While life may hopefully be getting back to sort-of-normal soon, our canine kids are loving the extra time spent with us. But maybe you’ve noticed pooch is a bit stiff in the mornings or a bit sore after a big walk?
It could be Arthritis…
Osteoarthritis is often noticeable later in its development because the initial changes within the joint are not visible. As dogs have 4 legs, they can shift weight and change their posture to cope with pain.
Often we hear owners say “he’s just slowing down..” or “he’s just a bit stiff”. It’s common for owners to not notice changes in their dogs willingness to exercise and play as these changes occur over time and when they do finally show symptoms, the disease is already quite advanced and the dog is often in considerable pain.
Even younger dogs can suffer the effects of Osteo Arthritis. If you’ve noticed your dog display any of the following signs, please book in for a quick check up. The pain of arthritis can be treated!
• Stiffness when getting out of bed in the morning (yes, just like us humans!)
• Limping or stiffness after a walk or exercise
• Licking or gnawing at joints or paws
• Puffy joints
• Abnormal gait
• Reluctance to walk upstairs or jump
• Reluctance to play and run
• Change in behaviour/aggression
• Postural change or muscle wastage
