Arthritis Management & Treatment

Osteoarthritis Treatments

Osteoarthritis in dogs and cats is the progressive and permanent long-term deterioration of the cartilage that surrounds your animal’s joints.

While we are unable to reverse the changes that occur, there are many treatment options that we at Mt. Carmel Animal Hospital offer on-site to help alleviate your pet’s arthritis discomfort. From hydrotherapy to pain medications, we are able to customize a treatment plan for every pet’s individual needs.

Treatment options include:

  • Adequan injections
  • Hydrotherapy (Underwater treadmill)
  • Anti-inflammatory laser
  • Canine rehabilitation/strengthening exercises
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Glucosamine supplementation
  • Specialized diets
  • Pain medications
  • Holistic options (acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal remedies)
