Our expert says:
The only problem with using good medications is that the animals don't feel any (or very little) discomfort and then charge around and can do themselves severe damage. Please restrict the exercise of animals with severe arthritic conditions that have responded well to treatment. Remember that most of the time we will not cure the arthritis in these animals and are treating the symptoms. Our aim is to provide comfort to the animal without it causing further pathology as a result of uncontrolled exercise.
