Arthritis in dogs is a degenerative condition that affects one or more of their joints. Most cases occur in dogs with an inherited orthopaedic disease such or hip dysplasia, or those with a joint injury.
Arthritis ?is a common disease that affects 1 in 5 dogs during their lifetime. The problem isn’t confined to older dogs. Hip dysplasia, ruptured cruciate ligaments, patella luxation, joint trauma, and other joint conditions can cause degenerative arthritis, even in young dogs.
Larger breeds of dog are affected more often than smaller dogs. Heavy dogs are more likely to experience symptoms because of the extra strain placed on ligaments and joints. Dogs with degenerative arthritis experience varying degrees of lameness, stiffness, and joint pain, which is more apparent in the morning and after getting up from a nap.

  • Seraquin
    Seraquin is a joint supplement, designed to promote healthy and supple joints in dogs and cats. Arthritis or degenerative joint disease is becoming increasingly recognised in dogs and cats, with as many as 1 in 5 animals being diagnosed with the condition at some stage. Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that results in sore and painful joints and can cause a range of symptoms including lameness, reluctance to jump or climb stairs, reduction in grooming (especially with cats), slowing up on walks, hunched postures, or a general state of depression. Many owners report that their pets seem worse during the colder, wetter months or following episodes of unusually vigorous exercise. Arthritis often waxes and wanes and affects each animal differently. Whilst arthritis is usually diagnosed in older pets, even some young animals can experience arthritic pain following conditions such as osteochondrosis (OCD) or ligament damage (e.g. cructiate ligament injury).Seraquin for dogs and cats is available in palatable tablet form (even 65% of cats took the tablet from an owners hand as a treat!) and is manufactured by a company with over 50 years of experience in making vet medicines. Seraquin tablets are often recommended by vets, either in combination with other medicines for arthritis or on their own. Seraquin contains a combination of 3 different compounds which make seraquin unique amongst many other joint supplements and remedies. These include: glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin and curcumin, a powerful anti-oxidant.At Vetdispense we advise an initial loading dose of seraquin, lasting from between 4-6 weeks followed by a continuation of treatment at half this level. It is rare to find any adverse reactions from the seraquin supplement as all the ingredients are naturally derived. Seraquin is perfectly OK to be given alongside other treatments for arthritis. In some cases, the use of seraquin as part of a treatment regime for arthritis will alleviate the symptoms to such an extent that lower doses of the more traditional pain-killers can be used or even stopped entirely. This could lead to fewer side-effects in the longer term. Any changes to the dose of medications being given should, of course always be done following discussion with your vet.At Vet Dispense we are able to sell seraquin at much lower prices than normally found at vets practices. We are able to do this through carefully negotiated discounts from the large drug companies and then pass these savings on.
