tips/advice for a cat with arthritis?
posted by roxie110 to pets & animals (12 answers total) 6 users marked this as a favorite
my nearly 17-year-old cat was recently diagnosed with arthritis in his lower spine and hips. he's a little wobbly on his hind legs and is having some trouble leaping up like he used to.
i'm wondering if anyone has advice on how i can make him more comfortable. (i've seen some old postings on semi-related issues but nothing current.) right now i'm giving him two hip action treats per day (glucosamine) and am looking into buying a heated cat bed.
he weighs 12 pounds. any suggestions for supplements/treatments or specific recommendations for cat beds or heating pads would be very welcome!
