Arthritis and Joint Pain in Cats

Arthritis in cats is the deterioration of articular (joint) cartilage which is also known as degenerative joint disease. This can severely affect the life style of your cat. Arthritis often occurs with simply the wearing of the cartilage between the joints and causes inflammation in the joints. This limits your cat's activities since pain is felt in the joints and to prevent this they stop doing certain physical tasks.

Causes of Arthritis in Cats
