My male has some confirmed arthritis in his back. What are you personal experiences with arthritis? Did it seem to expand quickly? Have you tried glucosamine supplements?

Also, what are your thought on ramps to a second story with arthritis along the spine? I am wondering if I should consider making a one-story cage for the future.
I don't have experience with arthritis. I believe there are some people at Guinea Lynx who have had pigs with arthritis, check over there in the medical forum. I seem to remember reading about daily rimadyl (not sure of the spelling) or Metacam, and glucosamine.

I would definitely make him a one story cage.
