Arthritis in Dogs: 12 Symptoms and Treatments


Symptom: Changes in Gait

Gait refers to the way your dog walks, and gait changes are an important indicator that arthritis may be developing in your dog. Pets with canine arthritis often start to display a slow gait, and it may seem as though the simple act of walking around the house requires your dog to exert much more effort than it used to.

If your pet’s arthritis is particularly severe in a certain part of its body, you may also notice your dog favoring that part of its body as it walks.
