Arthritis Treatment

Pain management and rehabilitation for cats and dogs living with arthritis.

Is your four-legged companion suffering from arthritis, experiencing moments of discomfort and pain? At Hudson Animal Hospital, we understand the concerns of pet owners regarding their animals' joint health. Our arthritis treatment service is designed to provide optimal relief and improve the quality of life for your faithful friend.

Why should I consider arthritis treatment for my pet?

Considering arthritis treatment for your pet is essential to improve their quality of life. Arthritis can cause joint pain and stiffness, affecting your companion's mobility. Arthritis treatment aims to alleviate these discomforts, slow the progression of the disease, and promote better mobility. By offering pain relief and improving joint function, the treatment helps maintain your animal's well-being, assisting them in leading a more comfortable and active life. Consultation with our veterinary team will establish a personalized treatment plan based on the specific needs of your faithful companion.

How can I tell if my pet is suffering from arthritis?

It can be challenging to determine if your animal is suffering from arthritis, but certain signs may be potential indicators. If you observe a decrease in physical activity, joint stiffness, difficulty getting up or climbing stairs, a change in behavior, limping, or reluctance to participate in activities they once enjoyed, there might be a suspicion of arthritis. However, only a veterinarian can provide an accurate diagnosis. If you have concerns, it is recommended to consult our veterinary team for a thorough evaluation of your animal's health.

What is the frequency of treatment sessions, and how quickly will results be visible?

The frequency of arthritis treatment sessions depends on the severity of your animal's condition and their response to treatment. In general, initial sessions may be more frequent to achieve optimal results, then gradually spaced out. You can typically start observing improvements after a few sessions, but this can vary from one animal to another. Our veterinary team will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your animal's specific needs, discuss the frequency of sessions, and carefully monitor progress to adjust the plan if necessary.
