FAQ

Canine Arthritis Management is a registered company, operating as a Social Enterprise Group – which means that any profit we make, goes straight back into CAM to keep the service available. We welcome anyone wanting to support us financially by doing fundraising activities, buying our products and raising awareness to help us to continue to help owners around the world.

CAM exists to help provide education and support for owners. In the human world, someone with Arthritis might get access to a home assessment, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and other complementary therapies alongside their medication. We are also encouraged to self educate, self empower and self initiate logical changes for the sake of our well being. Online providers are there to facilitate that In the dog world. It can be easy to overlook the house modifications as your vet cannot come to every owners home and advise on other modifications. CAM bridges that gap and supports you and your vet to raise awareness of the multimodal approach needed for canine arthritis in much the same way as is done in the human world.

Our Book Series is available to buy from our shop, we have two facebook groups linked to our facebook page, our facebook page, our Twitter page, our Forum and our website – all of which are packed full of help, tips, advice, information and importantly, support.
