The early stages of joint stiffness or decreased mobility in dogs can be subtle and difficult to detect. Unfortunately, ‘slowing down’ and getting ‘a bit stiffer’ are mistakenly attributed to inevitable old age.
Some dogs may become restless and more anxious whereas others may become depressed.
Become reluctant to get up/ lie down in the morning/ evening, particularly on colder days.
Show difficulty when jumping into cars or climbing stairs.
Change their grooming habits, e.g. licking/chewing their joints in dogs and poor grooming in cats.
Change in their eating habits, e.g. decreased appetite.
Whining or crying even when comforted or when a certain area is touched.
There are other factors besides ageing that can contribute to the development of stiff joints, including carrying excess bodyweight, type and level of exercise, genetic factors and traumatic injury.
