Also commonly referred to as Bone Spurs is a condition where bridges are formed along the ventral (bottom) part of the vertebrae of dogs. Spondylosis deformas can restrict the movement of the spinal column causing pain and stiffness. Spondylosis is more common in larger dogs and older dogs. Symptoms of Spondylosis may include back pain, back stiffness and the dog may whine or cry when touched in the back area.



Treatment of Spondylosis may include painkillers, surgery, physical therapy, acupuncture, stretching, deep tissue massage and weight loss programs. Physical therapy, medications and veterinary surgery can cost thousands of dollars if your dog is diagnosed with spondylosis. Pet health insurance helps pay for expensive veterinary care when your puppy or dog needs it most.
