Librela for Canines with OA Pain
Librela is a new and exciting treatment option for dogs with chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis (OA) that will soon be available at Companion Animal Medical Centre.
Librela is a once a month injection that can help your dog regain their movement and quality of life.
What Is OA Pain in Canines?
Osteoarthritis, also known as OA or degenerative joint disease, is a painful and chronic condition that can affect any dog, regardless of their breed, size, or age. OA is the most common cause for chronic pain in dogs and it’s estimated 80% of dogs suffer from some form of osteoarthritis by the time they reach 8 years-old. 35% of dogs are affected by OA before they reach 8 years of age.
There are many factors that determine whether your dog will develop OA including breed, genetics, past injuries, body weight, and age, but sadly no dog is immune to developing osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis worsens over time, making it a serious debilitating issue that can rob dogs of their ability to move, run, play, or simply spend time with their family without pain, which greatly affects their quality of life.
Previously, treatment for OA in canines relied heavily on the use of NSAIDs for relief from chronic pain, but now there’s new treatment option for canines with OA pain.
How Librela Treats Canine OA Pain
Librela is a first of its kind monthly injectable treatment for OA pain in canines.
Librela is not an NSAID or traditional pain killer, it is an injectable Monoclonal Antibody Therapy that works by targeting NGF, or Nerve Growth Factor. NGF is a protein that activates and binds to the pain receptors inside nerves causing chronic pain in canines with OA. Librela binds to NGF which prevents OA pain, reduces inflammation, and limits the release of NGF in the future.
Librela functions like naturally occurring antibodies and has been found to be safe and effective for treating canine OA pain.
Librela Can Ease the Burden of Care for Pet Owners
Caring for a pet that is ill or in pain is no easy task. Every pet owner wants the best for their pets, but even the most dedicated and loving pet owner can find themselves struggling to provide the daily care their pet needs.
Librela can ease the burden of care on pet owners by providing effective relief from pain so your dog can move easier, enjoy enhanced mobility, and feel better.
Librela is administered in office, so there’s no treatments to manage at home and no fear of missing a dose or struggling to give medication to a pet who is in pain.
Schedule your pet’s appointment to discuss if Librela might be the right choice for your pet.
