What does joint pain in dogs look like?

Even though dogs can’t talk, their behaviors and movement tell us when there’s an issue

How do I know if my dog has joint pain?

You can tell if your dog has joint pain if they are more irritable than normal, are walking slower, take longer to get up in the morning, are sleeping more, and are reluctant to go on walks or take part in regular activities. If you notice any of these symptoms, schedule an online vet visit with Dutch to consult with a vet.

What are the first signs of arthritis in dogs?

The first signs are typically difficulty getting up and down, stiffness while walking, reluctance to go up or down the stairs, and stiff or swollen joints. The signs of dog joint pain progress slowly over time, so it’s important to keep a close eye on your dog so you can identify the symptoms early on.

What can I do for my dog’s joint pain?

Depending on the cause and severity of the problem, your vet may recommend surgery, medication, or weight loss. There are a few at-home treatment methods you can try out as well, such as massage therapy and natural supplements. But as always, a vet will have the best idea of how to go about treating joint pain in a dog. Always consult a vet first before trying out any home remedies for your pup’s joint problems.

What is the best joint pain relief for dogs?

A vet can help determine the right joint pain relief for your dog. However, NSAIDs are typically prescribed to relieve joint pain and reduce swelling.

Frequently asked questions

What is a visit with Dutch like?

When booking a video call with a vet, you'll be asked a few questions about your pet’s health issue. Depending on the issue, you may also be asked to fill out a longer questionnaire about their symptoms and share photographs of them so our veterinarians can better understand what’s going on. You’ll then pick an appointment time that works best for you.

During your video call, one of our licensed veterinarians will talk to you about the symptoms your pet is experiencing, ask you questions, review your pet’s medical history if you’ve provided it, and answer any questions you have. The vet will ask to see your pet and their environment. And they may ask you to perform some simple checks on them if needed.

After your video call, the vet will send you a message with a custom treatment plan to help your pet feel better, including a link to buy any recommended prescription or over-the-counter medications. Place your order and we’ll ship it free.
