Osteoarthritis is a painful joint disease that can cause your dog to appear stiff and sore. An animal with arthritis may slow down and restrict typical activities. They may be less willing to jump up into the car, climb stairs readily, stop playing and have a reduced appetite or depressed attitude. When your pet is in pain, it can be an extremely frustrating time for pet owners, but Wind River Veterinary Services is here to help! Managing your pet’s pain is something we take very seriously. Pets feel pain and discomfort for the same reasons and under the same circumstances as people do. The effects of pain can actually delay the healing process. That is why we use a variety of methods and medications to control your pet’s pain. If your pet is experiencing pain, or exhibiting signs of pain, please contact us right away to schedule a consultation.
