Arthritis is sadly common in dogs, with up to 1 in 5 dogs developing a form of arthritis in their lifetime. It’s especially common in senior dogs, as it tends to develop with age. If you’ve noticed some changes in your dog’s movements recently, or if your dog is just getting on in years and you want to know more, it’s a good idea to know the signs of arthritis in dogs so you can recognize them in your dog.
If your dog whines or cries every time they’re in the car, you probably want to know why it happens and how to prevent it. Persistent crying or whining isn’t normal and indicates a problem. But if you can figure out the root cause and address it, you’ll make car rides a lot more pleasant for yourself and for your dog!
