Pet Arthritis In Farmington, Pa
Arthritis affects 35-45% of cats and dogs at all ages, 80% of dogs over 8 years old, and at least 90% of cats over 10 years old. It is often considered a disease of old age but routinely affects pets of all ages.
Arthritis impacts the entire body and is a significant source of pain, inflammation, and stress. Treating arthritis can significantly improve activity level and attitude, quality of life, appetite, etc.
We implement a multi-modal approach to treating arthritis including: oral and injectable supplements to help cartilage and joints, NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and pain medications, physical therapy and rehabilitation including laser therapy, state of the art therapies to provide cushion inside the joint, and stop the inflammatory process before it starts.
