Cats cannot take human OTC's but there are ways you can help.
He can take a glcosimine supplement:
Canned food is also excellent for arthritis. You can add one eighth of a teaspoon of turmeric every day. It is an anti-inflammatory.
You can make warm compresses by adding raw rice to a sock, tie the top and warm in microwave. Apply for 3 minute intervals. Gentle massage will help because it brings fresh blood to the surface.
