Intervertebral Disk Disease IVDD- an epidemic

When I began practicing 32 years ago, the most common arthritic condition I saw was hip dysplasia (arthritis of the hips) in large breed dogs. Over the past 20 years I have seen a dramatic shift in the location and frequency of arthritis in dogs and cats.  The most common arthritic condition is now  degenerative disc disease (arthritis of the back) in cats and dogs.  Over 80% of the pets I see have some level of degenerative disc disease (IVDD).  This dis-ease is affecting pets as young as 6 months of age.

The underlying cause of IVDD is inflammation which results from leaky gut.  Leaky gut is caused by an inflammatory diet, water with toxins, stress and GMO's.

Early signs may be subtle, "slowing down", "trouble getting up".  More advanced signs include reluctance to jump up on furniture, yelping when picked up, not lifting the head above the shoulders. If not addressed, the condition could progress to acute paralysis.

The best approach is prevention.  Creating a diet and lifestyle that reduce inflammation is easy and affordable.  Contact us for a consult!
