Arthritis Injections

Arthritis injections and your dog

Joint disease can be debilitating to the point where it affects your pet’s quality of life. Arthritis injections for your dog can provide comfort and assist with joint inflammation.

The key to controlling the pain associated with arthritis is managing the inflammation within the joints. The added benefit to this is that with good control and management, the progression of arthritis can be slowed down.

An arthritis injection is a veterinary product that increases joint fluid production and blood supply to joint surfaces, making your pet feel more comfortable.

The injection protects the joint cartilage by promoting new cartilage formation and thickening the joint fluid to work as a better lubricant. Best of all, it provides pain relief and treats all of the joints in the body at the same time.

The common schedule for arthritis injections includes an initial course of four once-weekly injections followed by a booster injection every three to four months. These ongoing arthritis injections help to combat the effects of further wear and tear of the joints.
