Feline Osteoarthritis and Solensia

Feline arthritis, also known as osteoarthritis, is a common condition in cats where the joints become inflamed and cause pain and discomfort. This condition can affect cats of all ages, but it is more commonly seen in older cats. Symptoms of feline arthritis include difficulty jumping, reduced activity levels, lameness, stiffness, and reluctance to be touched or groomed in certain areas.

Feline arthritis can be caused by various factors, including genetic predisposition, obesity, joint trauma, and congenital joint abnormalities. Treatment options for feline arthritis typically include medication to manage pain and inflammation, weight management, physical therapy, and changes to the cat’s living environment to reduce stress on the joints. In some cases, surgery may be recommended.

At Vetcetera, we offer Solensia as a means to help treat this condition for your cat and improve its overall quality of life.

Why Use Solensia?

While cat OA is not curable, the pain associated with it may now be adequately treated.

Solensia allows your cat to move more freely again and prevents OA discomfort from interfering with their special link with you.

What to expect with Solensia?

In a clinical study, cat owners reported that Solensia improved their cat’s quality of life, comfort, and overall well-being.
