Arthritis is a common, frequently underdiagnosed condition seen in cats and whilst it predominantly affects older cats, signs may also be seen from a young age.

Signs and Treatments

Commonly the signs of arthritis in cats will be seen as a change in lifestyle such as reduced jumping or playing, increased sleeping, or a change in temperament. Once signs of arthritis are suspected, the condition may be managed by a range of treatments including environmental changes, weight control, anti inflammatory pain relief medications, nutraceutical medications, and complementary therapies such as physiotherapy and acupuncture.
