Elbow

Cats bear 60% of their body weight in their front limbs, thus elbow health is essential. Injuries to the elbow joint often result in arthritis in your cat’s later years. Cats are masters at hiding pain; they may not show obvious symptoms. Some cats will sleep more often (appear to be lazy), show reluctance to jump up and down, or excessively groom the affected limb. A healthy body weight is the best insurance to minimize joint inflammation in your pet’s later years. Anti-inflammatory medications, nutritional supplements, physical therapy, and/or surgery may be recommended by your veterinarian to keep your cat’s elbow joints strong and mobile.
