Canine Arthritis can affect joints anywhere in the body with the most common joints affected being hips, knees, shoulders and elbows. Most of these joints depend on a layer of cartilage acting as a cushion which provides a smooth surface so the adjoining bones can move freely. This movement is assisted by the lubrication provided by synovial fluid in joints.

With arthritis the cartilage deteriorates and the synovial fluid loses its lubricating properties so that movement of the bones becomes less smooth, leading to discomfort and reduced mobility
