What is a arthritis and how is it treated?
Arthritis is an inflammatory joint inflammation. It provides for the body of the dogs a very high load and acts according to the degree of inflammation strongly on the ability of the dogs to move. This was primarily the result of the pain, which with arthritis in most cases can also go hand in hand with a joint inflammation also to a severe swelling in and on the joint, reducing the agility of the affected joint in addition is limited. The inflammation of the dogs joints can be due to different causes, and therefore, the various forms of arthritis in sub-areas broken down, are described below.
The three main causes of arthritis
An Arthritis can be caused by a bacterial infection in the joint arise and therefore speak the vets in this form of joint inflammation also of a bacterial arthritis. The cause of a bacterial Arthritis is based primarily on the penetration of pathogens in the yoke and in the joint cartilage. Often, such infection is a clear sign of a weakened immune system of the dog. The bacteria can be on different paths in the joint inner room and there is a trigger inflammation. For example, a bacterial arthritis a violation near the pivot or be preceded by the excitation will reach the joint on the blood circulation of the animal. The bacterial Arthritis may be particularly in the case of a strong pus education as critical because this joint cartilage in the worst case is damaged.
Arthritis by fungal proliferation
If an unnoticed fungal disease is located in the body of the dog, it can also lead to arthritis and then of a mushroom-induced arthritis is spoken. In particular, various intestinal mushrooms, such as yeast fungi that can use the time in the body of the dog to grow and also the joints affected by the disease, which is strength of inflammation in the joints can form. Also with this by a fungal proliferation induced form of arthritis there is a significant risk for the joint cartilage and therefore also for the joints.
The Rheumatoid arthritis is not caused by a bacterial infection or fungoid triggered but is a misdirected immune response of the immune system of the dogs against alleged and wrongly interpreted foreign bodies. In most cases swells in the rheumatoid arthritis the joint mucosa significantly, making the joint cartilageno longer sufficient on the synovial fluid (joint grease) with joint nutrients supplied. By means of a rheumatic arthritis-related table can therefore also be a cartilage wear in the affected joint of the Dog.
Opportunities for treatment and prophylaxis
For the treatment of arthritis oneshould in the first instance mustensure that the inflammation is eased and also the joint cartilage is optimally supplied with joint nutrients. In the event of a bacterial and by fungi triggered arthritis we also recommend something for the strengthening of the immune system of the dog to do so. In the alleviation of inflammation and against the pain, joint nutrients Chondroitin and MSM particularly well. The chondroitin and the MSM also in combination with Glucosamin, as in our DOG FIT by PreThis® JOINTS included is administered to the joints of an optimal mix of natural joint nutrients.
