Osteoarthritis and Your Dog: Help Your Dog Live a Healthier, Happier Life
Debbie Gross Saunders

The chronic, degenerative disease osteoarthritis, (also described as degenerative joint disease, and arthritis),is caused by the inflammation and deterioration of the cartilage, bone, and soft tissue of one or more joints. This progressive disease causes pain and decreased flexibility in the affected joint(s).

The resulting pain slows down a full 25% of adult dogs and even more senior dogs. Unfortunately, there is no outright cure for osteoarthritis, but using the right treatment and management program, you and your veterinarian can do a great deal to decrease your dog’s discomfort, limit the overall effect on his activity level and keep him living life to the fullest.

The information Debbie Gross Saunders covers in this DVD will help you understand the disease and your options for a treatment program. It will also show you what you can do for your dog to help him lead a healthier, happier life.
