Suddenly a hard time standing and walking

by chuck brown

My 13 year old little fella is having a hard time standing and moving around. Once he's up and about it seems to be better but if it lays down for any period of time he won't want to get up and limbs heavily (on his back lags). I pick him up and bring him to the backyard in the morning and he immediately lays back down. Eventually he will get up and walk around. I'm guessing its athritis but it came on suddenly if that's the case. Does it work that way?

arthritis

Sounds like it likely is, although it generally comes on more slowly.
Get him a high quality joint supplement -you can buy them online -and see if he improves.
Keep an eye on him for other signs of distress in case it's not arthritis.
