What is spinal arthritis in dogs?

Spinal arthritis also called spondylosis in dogs is a degenerative condition that affects the spine. Degenerative discs can cause bone spurs to develop and they can put pressure on nerves surrounding the spinal column.

As a result, this can cause weakness and pain in the limbs and limit the flexibility of the spine. It can occur at the neck region of the spine, upper and mid back or lower back.
