Shoulder health for your feline friend is essential to maintain a good posture as the front limbs carry almost 60% of their body weight. They connect the trunk to the front limbs and provide support to the front half of the body. When the normal alignment of the shoulders is disrupted, it results in pain. If not treated, this can lead t arthritis. Stoic cats may not show any obvious sign of shoulder pain while others may limp on the affected leg. To minimize the joint inflammation in your cat, it is important for them to maintain healthy body weight. Treatment includes prescribing ant-inflammatory medication, nutritional supplements, physical therapy, and surgery by your vet to keep the shoulders mobile and strong.
