Did you know that 1 out of 4 dogs suffers from arthritis?
Arthritis is a progressive degenerative joint issue characterised by degeneration, chronic inflammation and impaired immune response. Visible signs include stiffness, swollen and painful joints, reduced mobility and discomfort which have a major impact on quality of life and expectancy.
Arthritis doesn't just affect older animals. 70% of joint issues results from developmental problems: studies show that 22% of dogs with arthritis are less than 12 months.
There are two main types of joint problems in dogs, so it’s never too early to think about an animal's long-term joint health or administering natural joint support and an arthritis supplement for dogs to help to offset the degenerative effects of ageing.
Both developmental and degenerative joint issues involve inflammation. Swelling and pain are part of an animal's body’s attempt to heal from injury and wear and tear, sending antibodies and white blood cells to promote healing.
Inflammation that goes unchecked can add to a dog’s joint issues:
Joints are lined with a thin layer of cartilage that produces a fluid that lubricates the joint. This helps the joints move and function without any friction or pain.
Over time, antibodies from chronic inflammation begin to attack the joint lining and ironically, exacerbate the joint issues they’re trying to protect against and it becomes a chronic problem.
