When veterinarian Hannah Capon had to put two dogs down in the same day due to arthritis, it set her down the track which led her to found Canine Arthritis Management. Arthritis is not inevitable, there are things we can do to reduce its impact on our dogs, and we need to arm ourselves with knowledge so we can spot the signs of it in our dogs, and we can then put simple steps in place to help them. Hannah is setting out to make the Canine Arthritis Management website a resource for owners to educate and inform themselves - and to share advice with others in the same situation. Even if your dog isn't yet affected by arthritis, it's well worth checking the CAM site out. You can also connect with CAM on Facebook and Twitter.
