Arthritis, by Susan G Wynn, DVM, AltVetMed:"Anyone who has lived with an older, stiff and disabled dog has experienced the heartbreak of arthritis. This slowly progressive disease starts with almost undetectable discomfort, and may progress to the point that the animal refuses to stand, walk outside for constitutionals, or even eat. Arthritis actually comes in different forms, with different causes, and can attack dogs and cats regardless of breed or age."

What is Arthritis? American Podiatric Medical Association:"Arthritis, in general terms, is inflammation and swelling of the cartilage and lining of the joints, generally accompanied by an increase in the fluid in the joints.

Arthritis, Duquesne University:"Arthritis literally means "inflammation of a joint". Since there are any number of factors that can cause inflammation of a joint, there are many types of arthritis. Some examples of arthritis include osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Each of these may affect the patient differently and may have significantly different complications. It is, therefore, very important to know the exact type or form or arthritis that you may be treating."

What is arthritis? Your Orthopaedic Connection, American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons:"As many as 43 million people in the United States have some form of arthritis or joint inflammation. It is a major cause of lost work time and serious disability for many people. Although arthritis is mainly a disease of adults, children may also have it. What is a joint? A joint is where the ends of two or more bones meet. For example, a bone of the lower leg, called the shin or tibia and the thighbone, called the femur, meet to form the knee joint. The hip is a ball and socket joint. It is formed by the upper end of the thighbone-the ball-fitting into the socket-part of the pelvis called the acetabulum."
