Your cat loves to chase balls around and play…healthy stifle (knee) joints help ensure that these fun activities can continue throughout your cat’s life. Stifle injuries, such as cranial cruciate ligament tears, occur more commonly in overweight cats during play activity. Cats with stifle pain either hold up the affected leg or they may partially bear weight on it. A healthy body weight is the best insurance to minimize joint inflammation in your cat’s later years. Anti-inflammatory medications, nutritional supplements, physical therapy, and/or surgery may be recommended to keep the stifle joints strong and mobile so your cat can keep chasing balls into the golden years.
