GP Vet Perspective on OA Management

Hi everyone, Sarah here, I am going to do a week of posts for you on how I personally manage arthritis in general practice.
So, firstly, weight management. For me this is the most important thing I can prescribe for any arthritic patient but it is often the one that owners are least compliant with! I appreciate it is one of the hardest things we ask you to do but will have the biggest impact on your dog’s long term health.
Someone once told me to think about the affect weight has on arthritic joints as imagining two platforms going up and down on a spring. One of them has a tractor on and the other a mini, in this case it is easy to realise that the spring lifting the tractor up and down multiple times a day is going to wear out sooner than the one lifting the mini. It is no different when thinking about the amount of weight your dog’s joints are lifting up and down.
Most vet practices will run free weight clinics with the nurses to help you – get your arthritic dog signed up!
