Cat care: Bones and joints

Caring for your cat

Bones and joints

Caring for your cat’s joints and bones

Sadly, joint conditions are common in cats of all ages and breeds and are often the result of your cat’s active lifestyle. Wear and tear takes its toll as cats age and combined with injury and disease can cause pain, swelling, stiffness and reduced mobility. These changes can be subtle and develop over time so it is important that if you notice your cat starts to become less active, you talk to your vet about any symptoms which may be a sign of degenerative joint disease.
