Cats are natural athletes and are highly active, but over the years this can take its toll. As a consequence older cats can suffer from wear and tear in their joints
Many older cats suffer from arthritis. 9 out of 10 cats over the age of 12 years can suffer from this painful disease. In cats, the elbow joint is most affected, followed by the shoulder and hip. With cats living longer this is a growing problem.
Arthritis causes joints to degenerate over time, causing reduced and painful mobility.
