Is Your Dog One in a Million?
Join Charlie Dimmock live online on Monday 16th August from 3pm - 4pm.
Over 1 million dogs in the UK suffer from canine arthritis, and it is estimated that 650,000 of them go untreated. Just like human sufferers of osteoarthritis they experience pain, stiffness and lack of mobility. Owners may simply think their pet's lameness is due to old age and as dogs don' t express their pain in quite the same way as we do, many could be suffering in silence.
Although canine arthritis is more common in older dogs, it can start quite early in life, but the good news is that it may be treatable. This September is the Hip Hip Hurray canine arthritis awareness campaign, which aims to get Britain's dogs back on their feet by educating the nation's pet owners. The campaign will give dog owners the opportunity to find out all they need to know about the condition, from prevention to symptoms and treatment.
Charlie Dimmock, one of Britain's best loved gardeners is enthusiastically backing the campaign. As an animal lover, and owner of a much treasured elderly dog, Charlie really cares about pets possibly suffering from arthritis. Charlie will be live online with vet, Susan McKay, BVMS, MRCVS, MBA on Monday 16th August from 3pm - 4pm to answer all your questions on the campaign. Charlie will discuss her involvement in the campaign whilst Susan McKay can offer advice on how you can ensure your best friend doesn't suffer in silence.
