What’s your dog’s OA risk? Identifying osteoarthritis (OA) isn’t always easy, since the early signs are subtle and dogs instinctively try to hide signs of pain. This quiz will help you get a peek into whether your dog is at risk for developing OA or is potentially already experiencing some of the painful signs. Keep in mind this quiz is not a diagnostic tool. Only a veterinarian can diagnose canine osteoarthritis and prescribe treatment, when needed, so be sure to discuss the quiz results at your next veterinary appointment.
