What should you know about osteoarthritis

OA may affect about 37% of dogs OA does not just come with old age–it affects dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. OA can affect any dog, even as young as 1 year old…from Chihuahua to Mastiff.

The pain of OA can impact your dog’s emotional health too.

Less common signs of pain in dogs include faster heart rate, reduced appetite, depression, and reluctance to move

How do I know if my dog is in pain?

The most common chronic pain seen in dogs is osteoarthritis (OA).

When in the comfort of your home, you’re in the best position to recognize what your dog is telling you about her OA pain. Your dog is more at ease at home, making it easier to notice if they’re acting differently. If you notice signals of pain, make an appointment with your veterinarian.

Along with their help, you can potentially slow OA’s progression and ease your pup’s discomfort. Your dog’s pain language is a language of signs.

These signs of pain can be physical, such as limping, hesitation to jump, slow to rise, and lagging behind on walks.

The signs can also be emotional, like changes in a dog’s happiness and energy levels. In fact, in a recent study[1], these signs were used to help assess how much OA pain the dog was feeling.In that study, pet owners were given a short questionnaire that asked about their dog’s at-home behaviour.

Pet owners recorded changes in their dog’s levels of emotional well-being (happiness, calmness, contentedness, comfort) and physical well-being (energy, enthusiasm, activity, and relaxation). Changes in these behaviours helped both the pet owner and their veterinarian identify and understand what the dogs were saying about their pain. Use this checklist to help identify OA pain in your dog.

If you suspect that your dog is telling you they might have OA, it’s important to make an appointment with your veterinarian for an OA screening.

If it’s determined that your dog has OA, your veterinarian may recommend a comprehensive treatment plan.

Fortunately, there are treatment options that can safely help ease the pain of OA.

In the study discussed above, the long-term treatment option used was a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which has been found to be safe for long-term use.

The sooner osteoarthritis is diagnosed, the better your dog’s outlook and quality of life can be. And that should come as a clear sign of happiness
