Signs of arthritis in pets

Physical difficulties

Limping, spinal issues, muscle atrophy, licking biting and chewing a certain area, can all indicate arthritis. If you notice that your pet is moving in a different way than usual, it’s worth getting them to a vet and getting them checked. If you suspect that something is wrong with your pet, a good time to look for these physical difficulties is while they are trying to get comfortable or after they have slept. If they take a long time to get comfortable or appear to be stretching a lot after sleep, this can be an indication that their joints are stiff.

Changes in behaviour

Changes in behaviour are likely to occur in pets that have arthritis. The simple reason for these changes is the pain that they are in. This pain can make them irritable, tired, reluctant to take walks and a lot more. It can be very difficult to see your dog go through these changes, but they do offer an early warning system. If you notice any differences in your dog’s behaviour, get them checked out by a vet. These changes don’t always indicate arthritis, but they normally occur when something isn’t right so it’s crucial that you get them checked out.

The arthritis treatments available to your pet

One of the best treatments available to your pet is stem cell therapy. Stem cells are newly developed cells that do not have a role in the body yet. They are found in the fat of your pet. We take these cells out, activate them in our lab and then inject them back into your pet at the site of the pain. When they enter into the joint, they begin repairing the damage by turning into any cell that they need to be. Bone, cartilage, soft tissue, a stem cell can turn into any healthy cell the joint needs it to be.

Other treatments for arthritis in pets simply help them with the symptoms of the condition. These treatments can work very well to help your pet live a long life with the pain and swelling that comes from arthritis. Stem cell therapy helps to rebuild the joint and stop the swelling and pain that way. After stem cell therapy has done its work, you can then use the other treatments to stop the arthritis from returning.

Currently, stem cell therapy is the only remedy for arthritis that can rebuild the joint back to a healthy condition. It is a viable option for all pets with arthritis and can relieve all the signs and symptoms mentioned above.
