Pets suffer from osteoarthritis, just as people do. In fact, veterinarians say arthritis is one of the most underdiagnosed conditions in their profession. Although the joint damage caused by arthritis can’t be reversed, the condition can be treated. As is the case with many diseases, however, early diagnosis is key. Dr. Stan Kim, an orthopedic surgery specialist, discusses how pet owners can in some cases prevent the disease from occurring in the first place, how to recognize signs of arthritis in your pet, when it’s time to call your veterinarian and what can be done in veterinary medicine these days to treat the condition.
