Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common disease, and nutrition has become an integral part of management. This article focuses on the role and dietary ingredients in OA, evaluating current evidence for obesity management, omega-3 fatty acids, and chondromodulating agents. Additionally, keeping an animal in optimal to slightly lean body condition has been shown to decrease the risk of development of OA and to aid management of dogs with OA.
