Identifying Signs of Joint Pain in Dogs and Treating Them Permanently

Joint pain and inflammation is one of the most common issues dogs deal with, and not just middle aged or senior dogs, it’s been observed that even young dogs are falling prey to it now.  

Since these pets cannot voice out their discomfort, as their guardian angels, we should keep a strong check on how they’re faring in terms of their physical health, before a simple injury or mild joint pain turns into something serious.

Here are 9 tell-tale signs of joint pain in dogs you need to look out for:

1. Limping:

  • Difficulty in moving their joint 
  • Shifting their hind legs to either side
  • Limping on one or both legs
     

2. Lameness:

  • Stiffness in joints
  • Not placing the affected leg on the ground for most of the run and then standing with only their toes touching the ground
  • Not being able to put any weight at all on the limb on the affected side
     

3. Arching of the Lower Back or Spine:

  • Sore neck
  • Hunched back
  • Increased frailness in hind legs
  • Unnatural stance before walking

4. Lethargy:

  • Getting tired even on walking short distances
  • Sleeps most part of the day
  • Low on energy
     

5. Abnormal Walking or Running:

  • Having a hopping walk if they walk/run too fast i.e. will push themselves forward with both hind legs
  • Flicking the affected hind/back legs as they walk
  • Holding the affected leg in a way that only toes touch the ground as they walk
  • Dragging of the hind or front paws

  • Not being able to leap onto the couch, bed or car

7. Licking, Snapping, Yelping or Biting:
