I have a 7 year old indoor American Longhair. She tends to lay like a Himalayan or Cockerspaniel with her legs extended out in the back. I notice that she seems a little stiff when she gets up after laying down in her hind quarters. Could she be getting some artheritis at her age and is there anything I can give her that might help? She weighs 16.7 lbs, so she is no fly weight.
I had one that lived to be 21 and when she started experiencing a little artheritis, our vet had us give her a half of a baby aspirin every other day and it helped.
Do not give you cat aspirin. It can kill cats. Talk to your vet about cosequin for cats. It is for arthritis. vetcare
