Many older cats become stiff and sore especially during cold weather or after exercising. In an older cat for example, this is likely due to wear and tear or from injury. In a younger cat it is more likely to be the result of a diet lacking in raw bones and inappropriate exercise patterns while very young. The most common signs of arthritis and joint disease in cats include stiffness, limping, or favouring a limb - particularly after sleep or resting, reluctance to jump or even climb stairs, and noticeable pain.
This formula will detoxify the system, reduce inflammation and stimulate circulation. The cat will show an improvement in mobility and comfort with continued use. Feline progressive polyarthritis, as the name suggests, affects multiple joints in a cat and worsens over time. There are generally two types of this disease. These kinds of changes are similar to those seen in hip dysplasia and other degenerative joint disease. The most commonly affected joints are those of the feet, the carpus (wrist), and hock. In the second type of progressive polyarthritis, the erosion of the cartilage is severe such that the bone under the cartilage is exposed, which causes severe pain. This is similar to rheumatoid arthritis in dogs and people. Progressive polyarthritis in cats generally affects young and middle-aged male cats. The cats show a reluctance to walk, the joints are swollen, the range of motion is reduced, and in some cases, the cats experience recurring episodes of fever, loss of appetite, and swollen lymph nodes.
