Weight management is hugely important for many of our physiotherapy patients.

We use a Body condition score to assess the weight and we want our patients to be 4 or 5 out of 9 on the scale. Weight loss has been shown to be very important in reducing pain in osteoarthritis and to help support joint biomechanics.
Is your cat less active now simply because of old age, or could they be suffering from osteoarthritis? The early identification of the degenerative joint condition, osteoarthritis (OA) in cats isn’t always straight forward but it is very important that cat owners spot this disease early to minimise its debilitating effects and provide the best quality of life.
