Arthritis can affect dogs at any age but is most likely to occur with age. As the weather gets cooler it may become more noticeable.
The good news is there are many things that can help dogs with arthritis nowadays (probably more options than people have). There are 3 things that you can do at home to help your dog. There are many more things that we can help with at Dandenong Ranges Vet Centre.
A survey by drug company Zoetis showed that on average pet owners are only administering heartworm prevention 5/12 times per year, leaving dogs & cats at risk of developing this life threatening infection. Dandenong Ranges Veterinary Centre has developed a plan to help pet owners overcome this & save money - the Platinum Paws Club! There are 3 levels to choose including options for FREE, unlimited examinations / consultations!
At Dandenong Ranges Veterinary Centre we do whatever we can to reduce anxiety for our pets and their owners. Cats are particularly catered for in this regard with a separate waiting area, completely separate cat only examination room and the use of happy pheromones (for dogs and cats - our staff don't need it, they're always happy!) throughout the surgery. Cats also have their own recovery area away from noisy dogs.
