Date:5/7/2009

DENVER, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Veterinary researchers estimate that 20 percent of adult dogs suffer silently from osteoarthritis and 45 percent of cats endure arthritic pain. To educate pet owners about arthritis -- and ways to prevent and treat it -- Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) developed a Web exclusive at www.morrisanimalfoundation.org/arthritis with tips on early detection and treatment of arthritis in pets.

Exclusive videos feature pet owners as well as interviews with veterinarians and a certified animal chiropractor, and articles offer management tips, resources for helping pets at home and the latest in MAF research that helps pets today and tomorrow.

MAF has supported about 15 studies on arthritis-related issues. Current research looks at complementary treatments for arthritis.
