Cats Get Arthritis Too

Has your cat been missing the litter box lately?

December 13, 2012

Has he become grumpy or quit grooming himself?  Do you feel that you have finally trained your cat to stop jumping on the counters?


In reality, these behavior changes are likely due to a disease process.  Recent studies have shown that over 60% of cats 6 years of age or older have degenerative joint disease (arthritis) in 1 or more joints.  That number jumps to 90% in cats over 12 years old.


The good news is that we now have treatments available to make your kitty more comfortable and improve his quality of life.


If you are noticing any of these signs, call us today so we may start your cat on the path to a more comfortable life.
