It breaks my heart to see any pet suffering. That's
when I want to be Dr. Dolittle and be able to talk to them and
comfort them and explain that the medicine is for their own
good. I have learned that just holding and petting them
is sometimes the only thing you can do but that love you feel
for that special pet is transmitted thru your fingers.
by Niall KennedyCat arthritis is not a very common
ailment among healthy cats. Most arthritis found in cats is
from an accident that has made the bones or joints weak.
Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints and there is more
than one type of arthritis that can affect your cat.
Cats usually suffer with two different types of arthritis.
The first one being traumatic arthritis, this is brought on by
an injury. It could have been a fight with another animal or
even being hit by a car.
Osteoarthritis is when a joint just quits working properly
and new bone is growing around the joint. Many older cats have
this type of arthritis and can be brought on from numerous
accidents including dislocations of their joints or even
Traumatic arthritis does not usually last but can be very
painful, if it is more or less a sprain. But, if it involves a
fracture then the pain can last a longer time and may even need
surgery to heal the fracture or dislocation.
As in the case of Osteoarthritis the pain is severe and your
cat will need some relief from the pain. If your cat is
overweight the pain can even be more severe.
Talk with your veterinarian if you do believe that your cat
does have a type of cat arthritis. Your cat will enjoy life
more and be able to chase those mice again if treatment is
regular. It is no fun to play and jump and be a cat when they
are in severe pain. The longer your cat sits around in pain the
stiffer the joints will become. The pain will then increase
with every step they take. Be sure to get the treatment your
cat needs so they can enjoy life once again.
