( — August 29, 2017) Las Vegas, NV — While many dogs have basic needs, they are also suffering from or are prone to developing arthritis, which is a painful and debilitating condition.

Male dogs are believed to be more susceptible to septic arthritis. Pet owners should be well aware of this condition, which may potentially cause the health and quality of life of their dogs to spiral downwards.

Arthritis is a type of joint inflammation that typically develops after a traumatic injury, which may expose the joint to contaminations, such as environmental microorganisms. The blood stream is often used by these microorganisms to penetrate the joints.

Microorganisms use the blood stream to enter the joints. Infection is one of the sources of these microorganisms, which usually ends up inside the joint fluid. In some dogs, more than one joint is usually affected by the infection.

There is actually a difference between arthritis and septic arthritis. The former causes inflammation in one or multiple bone joints. The latter, on the other hand, is not just characterized by inflammation but also of the bacterial organisms in the affected joint fluid.

In addition to male dogs, dogs that are four to seven years of age are also believed to be susceptible to the condition. Breeds such as Dobermans, Labrador Retrievers, and German Shepherds are also more prone to septic arthritis.

Experts also reveal that dogs with a compromised immune system or diabetes could also be susceptible to the condition. Experts believe that the underlying factors include bacterial and fungal infections.

To identify the bacteria that causes the infection, veterinarians often analyze the joint fluid. Dogs that suffer from septic arthritis usually experience symptoms such as lethargy, lack of appetite, fever, pain, and joint swelling.

These debilitating symptoms may negatively affect the life of dogs, and this is why pet parents should resort to measures that may help their furry family members manage their pain better.

There are pain medications available but there are also natural alternatives such as curcumin. This is a bioactive ingredient in turmeric, and is believed to offer a myriad of health benefits.

Some of the valuable agents of curcumin are thought to contain antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

Pet parents may provide their pets with curcumin supplements to potentially help fight arthritis pain and inflammation.
