Here are five of the most common signs of an arthritic dog:

  1. My dog is having problems getting up and down and is reluctant to climb stairs.
  2. My dog isn't as active anymore, and she seems stiff or limps after exercise or after getting up from a nap.
  3. My dog's legs have gotten skinnier, and he shakes or shivers a lot not.
  4. My dog cries whenever someone pets his rear area, and he walks with an arch.
  5. My dog is now 7 plus years old and suddenly snapping at us and the kids.

Do any of these apply to your dog?  Maybe we should see him/her for an exam and some blood work.
