As the winter months become colder, we sometimes start to notice our pets sleeping more and not wanting to get out of bed in the morning. This can be a sign of pain. Cats and dogs generally don't cry or moan in pain like us. Instead we need to look at subtle changes in their behaviour.

Common signs include

- a reluctance to walk, jump or climb the stairs,

- limping,

- licking affected joints,

- difficulty rising from a resting position

While arthitis can't be cured, there are quite a few treatment options available for your pet. if you have noticed any changes, why not call us today on 40332900
