Is Your Pup In Pain?

In the United States, we there are 16 million more pet dogs than children and 48% of people own dogs. We value our canines for the fun companionship they offer. Many even consider their pets as a member of the family, spending more than $1,000 a year on our dogs, not including medical bills.

In 2017, Americans spent almost $32 billion on veterinary care and medical supplies for their dogs. The most common and most expensive pet health issues are joint conditions, with around 80% of dogs over 8 years old suffering from joint pain. But joint pain often goes unnoticed.

The signs of joint pain mimic symptoms of aging. When dogs start to tire more easily or stop enjoying their walks and playtime owners think it’s just a sign their pet is getting older. In fact, many dogs will instinctively hide pain – even when it’s severe.
