Why Dogs Joints Click. What Is This? What Should I Do?

If you notice your dog’s joints clicking in combination with limping, stiffness, swelling, or your dog seems in pain and discomfort it might be a symptom of arthritis.

Arthritis causes inflammation, changes in the joint structure and synovial fluid, as well as damage to the cartilage. All of these mean that the joint is more likely to click or make popping noises when it’s moved. You might also be hearing grinding, crunching (crepitus), or cracking.

However, if you notice your dog’s joints clicking, that in and of itself might not indicate a problem. There are many reasons for why the joint may be clicking so please see your vet.

If the bone is rubbing against bone, your dog will be in a lot of pain.
