Why do joint problems appear in older dogs?
Joint problems in dogs are common, especially when linked to age. Older dogs often suffer from osteoarthritis or other bone and joint diseases that cause them pain and discomfort. In addition, they no longer feel like walking and this makes the discomfort even greater.
Not only can a poor diet lead to a lack of adequate calcium for their bones, but together with a sedentary lifestyle, it leads to obesity problems in many dogs. As a consequence, more joint disease in older dogs in particular.
Does my dog have joint pain?
There are very clear symptoms that will make us visit our favourite vet because they will be obvious signs that our dog has a problem with his bones.
When a dog has pain in his bones or joints, they are usually irritable, they don’t want to walk or do physical activity, they limp when they try, they complain of pain, they make strange movements, they walk too stiffly or they frequently lick the affected areas, such as their paws.
