Joint and skeletal problems in dogs have many causes. Sometimes puppies, especially larger puppies, do not get the right nutrition during crucial periods of growth and development. This can lead to serious growth disorders which present in later life as joint disease. Further risk factors include age-related wear and tear, which is a frequent cause of joint disease, as well as excess weight, a history of joint injury or trauma, physical over-exertion or a very active lifestyle, and genetic predisposition.
