Subject: arthritis treatments?

Overall, I would say the most common pathologies follow those for the

thoracic skeleton, and are (in order) healed fractures, arthritis,

reactive bone, bone masses.

In view of the high incidence of arthritic changes Bob attests to, I wonder
if we shouldn't be considering some sort of anti-inflammatory drug for older
ferrets who appear to be having a hard time getting around. I know both my 6
year olds have greatly decreased their climbing this year. Vet comments?
