Older cats articular problems

Posted by Rodolphe Cote on November 15, 2011 at 7:55 PM

 


As we get older most of us are already starting to feel chronicle pains associate with articular degenerative sickness of some kind. We wake up in the morning with all kinds of stiffness and movement rigidity in some part or the other of our body.

 

We all know that dogs often suffer from articular pains. We often hear the word dysplasia which is the typical term used for describing degenerative sickness on dogs. Sometime its on a hip or at other times on a leg joint. But what about cats? Those small animals full of flexibility and agility. Could it be that their articulations be less affected by old age than ours. Well its a resounding no! When studied under radiography it shows that on the majority cats older than ten years have arthritis lesions and visible signs of degenerative articulatory damages even though most of them don't seems to show any symptoms of suffering pain. A cat is a very proud and secretive animal who does not like us to know that it has pains.

Results of study.

Researchers who studied articular degenerative diseases on cats. When studied under radiography taken ed on many cats brought to the veterinary for various medical reasons (but in most case because the cats were limping or because of articular pains) Here is what they discovered:

 

In one study alone , 80 percent of cats have shown some kind of lesions due to articular degenerative sickness. 

During another study, 92 percent of the cats of over 12 years of age and older under radio graphic studies had articular degeneration symptoms. But only 4 percent of them would show evident limping signs. 

100 percent of cats over 15 years of age had articular degenerative lesions. 

Another further study was made on cats sent to a veterinarian university school, it was discovered that 34 percent of all cats older than 10 years old are showing signs of articular degeneration when studied under radiography, while only 16.5 percent of them was showing any signs of having slight problems.This is to say that the majority of cats over 10 years old have a very good chance of suffering from articular pains even if they don't show an y outward signs of suffering, for the simple reason that cats do not like us to know that they are suffering.

Big cats are more at risk and sometime they do show some small signs of having articular pains.

During another study prospects, a total number of 1460 cats have been medically followed during a five year period. The study demonstrate that slightly overweight cats tend to be 3 time more at risk of developing articular degenerative lesions and sadly that real overweight cats are 5 time more at risk of developing those articular degeneration diseases. Your cat is very secretive about his pains. It may be already suffering from articular pains if:

 

It is 10 years old or older. 

It is less active than before and tend to sleep more than usual. 

If its fur is less glossy and looks less maintained than before. 

If its movements seems altered and with less suppleness. 

It seems to have occasional stiffness. 

It seems to hesitate before taking a jump. 

It tend to not jump very high anymore, and sometime miss its target. 

It occasionally defalcate or urinate outside of its litter box. 

It is less playful and interact less with you. 

It hides. 

It has mood changes, seems more grouchy and less sociable, etc... 

It has certain periods of meowing without apparent reasons.What to do?

Just like us cats who present certain symptoms of articular degenerative pains don't have to suffer unnecessarily.

Today's veterinary medicines offers a panoply of alternatives which can be combined to diminish chronicle pains an ameliorate the quality of life of cats suffering from arthritis. So take good care of your cats. They are wonderful friends, and do not deserve to suffer for nothing.

Best diet tips ever - 22 ways to stay on track

Tip 1: Drink plenty of water or other calorie-free beverages

Before you tear open that packet of crisps, drink a glass of water first. People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger, so you can end up eating extra calories, when an ice-cold glass of water is really all you needed. If plain water doesn’t do the job, try drinking flavoured sparkling water or have a cup of fruit-infused herbal tea.

Understanding Isometric Exercises


Isometric exercises have become increasingly popular, because they have been proven to be effective in helping people maintain and achieve a fit and healthy body. Isometric is a term that is made up of 2 words, namely, "iso" and "metric," which mean "equal" and "length," respectively. As the term suggests, isometric exercises refer to exercises that are performed without altering the length of muscles. They require you to tense your muscles without actually moving any part of your body. These exercises are widely practiced by fitness enthusiasts because they can be used to strengthen specific muscle groups in the body.
