There are lots of causes of arthritis – the most common being old age and invasion of joints (after surgery).
There are plenty of veterinary medicines that can help but Glucosomine, Chondritin & MSM tablets taken daily have had good results. Devils Claw & Green-lipped Mussels are also very popular, and the old favourite Cod-liver Oil.
Homeopaths often prescribe Ruta Grav or Rhus Tox. For more specific information see the link below.
