Arthritis is a familiar problem for most vets. A large number of dogs, and an increasing number of cats, suffer from arthritis. Arthritis simply means an inflammation of joints and animals with arthritis usually suffer with pain and stiffness in their joints. Although arthritis is typically a problem in older pets, many animals with arthritis have had signs of disease from an early age, as their arthritis is caused by problems with joint development.
