Cats are amazing and often can hide almost everything, including pain. Did you know your cat’s activities and behaviours might be signs of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease which can be very painful? Could you tell the signs in your cat?
Chronic pain can impact your cat’s quality of life, both physically and emotionally. If you identify this joint disease early, we can develop a treatment plan suitable for your cat.
This disease can affect cats of any age, and if left untreated, can become worse overtime.
If you would like to check the signs of your cat, you can use this pain checklist and share the results with your vet:- Feline OA Checklist.FINAL-editable
