Osteoarthritis primarily refers to a chronic joint problem that is associated with degeneration and loss of cartilage as well as bone spurs that have grown on the bones and/or in the joints. This causes a reduction in mobility and an increase in inflammation.

This painful condition can be found in cats sometimes as young as 2 years old but more than 95% of all cats over the age of 12 years old show radiographic evidence of Osteoarthritis.

Symptoms are not always limited to limping or less activity but can also present as behavioral changes or even changes in urination or defecation habits. Use this easy-to-navigate checklist to help identify if your pet might be experiencing any changes.
