How To Protect Your Pet's Joints

Are you aware that your cat can suffer from a common condition that affects many humans (and dogs, and other species)? Arthritis is joint inflammation, which can be a short or long-term and always painful condition. When joint inflammation does not resolve, there can be permanent damage to joint surfaces which causes reduced range of motion, further inflammation, and ongoing discomfort. Such is why I recommend my clients (and pet owners worldwide) do their best to prevent arthritis from happening in the first place. This approach combines lifestyle modificaitons (calorie restriction, prevention of trauma, etc.) along with the use of natural anti-inflammatory and joint supporting supplements and medications.
