Lean on your veterinarian and start your animal on joint supplements early in life.
As our dogs and cats age, we sometimes notice behaviors that may cause concern about their joint health. They may get up more slowly, have difficulty jumping up on furniture and navigating stairs, or they may limp and seem stiff. Dogs are more likely than cats to experience joint health concerns, but both can experience these problems. Cats can be very good at masking discomfort, but telltale signs are difficulty when grooming or issues with climbing in and out of the litter box.
