1-800-PetMeds® Helps Celebrate Arthritis Awareness Month
PetMeds ® helps educate the public about arthritis in dogs and cats with articles, blogs and social media.
1-800-PetMeds®, America’s Largest Pet Pharmacy is helping to celebrate Arthritis Awareness Month in their own way by including cats and dogs. Arthritis Awareness Month, which lasts the whole month of May, brings awareness to the prevention, symptoms, and treatment of arthritis. Since the focus for Arthritis Awareness Month is mostly geared towards humans, the Company wants the public to know that pets are just as susceptible to arthritis, and it’s just as painful for them. In addition, many pet owners have a lot to learn about what to do for their arthritic pet.
That’s why PetMeds® strives to educate pet owners about symptoms, treatment options and ways to help prevent pet arthritis through their Pet Education articles. This pet health resource provides pertinent information regarding various pet health issues, and highlights arthritis and joint health topics for pets throughout Arthritis Awareness Month. It even quotes statistics about arthritis such as, “1 out of every 5 dogs over the age of 7 has arthritis” and “Over 90% of geriatric cats have arthritis”. Most of the articles on the PetMeds® Pet Education pages are written by holistic and conventional veterinarian Dr. Michael Dym, who works with PetMeds® very closely to deliver quality teachings for pet owners.
I love to help 1-800-PetMeds with their endeavors to offer free advice and help educate the public on popular health topics. I feel like I can really dig in and help more people than what I normally see in my practice, - Said Dr. Michael Dym, VMD
PetMeds® is delighted to offer educational content year-round, and Arthritis Awareness Month is an ideal time to remind pet owners how important their pet’s joint health is in order to keep pets healthy and happy.
