Canine hip dysplasia (CHD) is a genetic, painful, crippling disease that causes a dog's hip to weaken, deteriorate, and become arthritic.

No one likes to see an animal suffer. But watching a beloved dog struggle to get up from her bed, or a cherished cat hobble around the house, is truly heartbreaking.

Nutrition and Arthritic Pets
08/12/10  JR Rogers
We have talked about the importance of both diet and exercise when dealing with a pet that has arthritis. I think that diet is such an important issue that it is one we should discuss in greater detail. It is becoming common knowledge that as humans, our bodies perform better when we "eat right." It is equally important for pets to follow healthy food guidelines as well.

08/12/10  Randy Wysong DVM
