PET SYMPTOMS

 

Hip dysplasia is usually a result of arthritis in older dog. Hip dysplasia causes joint deterioration and prevents the femur and hip socket from fitting properly. However, it can also be inherited and is quite common in large dog breeds. It is an incurable disease that worsens overtime and leads to a series of symptoms including; difficulty walking, pain, trouble getting up from a resting position, limping, decreased activity, and inability to walk. Treatment is usually aimed at slowing down the progression of the disease and soothing symptoms. Surgery can also be helpful in some cases, but it’s costly and not everyone can afford it. For this reason, it’s recommended that all dogs are tested for hip dysplasia before being bred.  23.jpg

Disease of the joints and osteoarthritis can cause synovial fluids and cartilage cushions to wear down over time. Cartilage is a formation of connective tissues to aid as cushions to the joints. However just as a cushion of a couch breaks down over years of wear, so does the cartilage. As the cartilage wears down the bones begin to rub on each other causing inflammation and a great deal of pain. Pets which are suffer from illness, disease, malnutrition, obesity, or calcium deficiencies are at a higher risk in developing arthritis at an earlier age. The joints are also cushioned with synovial fluids to prevent bone-on-bone grinding. Over time synovial fluids wear down, causing the bones to wear down together, this condition is known as acute or chronic joint disease. A pet which has developed acute joint disease will show signs of lameness and maybe painful to the touch. The joint itself may appear swollen and warm when felt. Chronic joint disease will cause the pet a great deal or pain and reduce the motion of their once flexible joints. As the condition progresses, the pet will become unwilling to move about, to travel, and will have daily lameness. A pet in this condition will be unable to perform as he/she once had and may become depressed. Secondary problems can arise from joint disease as pets will have difficulties standing.
