NO NEED TO WAIT
Small changes in your dog’s behavior could actually be early signs of canine osteoarthritis. Your dog may be more cautious and slowing down because of achy joints.
WHAT IS CANINE OSTEOARTHRITIS?
Canine osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic pain in dogs, and it doesn’t just occur in older, heavy dogs.1 It’s a painful disease that causes inflammation and swelling in a dog’s joints.
A TREATABLE CONDITION
Although there’s no cure for canine osteoarthritis, recognizing the possible signs early is important. Talk to your veterinarian today to learn more about canine osteoarthritis and how Galliprant may help your canine friend stay active.
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOUR DOG HAS EARLY SIGNS OF OSTEOARTHRITIS?
Your dog can’t tell you about aches and pains, so it’s up to you to watch for the subtle warning signs of osteoarthritis pain and inflammation. No one knows your dog better than you do, so your veterinarian relies on you to notice changes in behavior.
ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS
- Is your dog less interested in participating in usual activities?
- Does your dog seem less alert?
- Does your dog lag behind during walks?
- Is your dog overly cautious when navigating stairs, jumping up on the couch, or getting in or out of the car?
- Is your dog sleeping more?
- Does your dog have difficulty getting up or lying down?
- Has your dog gained weight?
- Does your dog seem less interested in greeting you when you come home?
KEEP THEM DOING THE THINGS THEY LOVE
You want your dog to be able to run, jump and play. Galliprant reduces pain and inflammation, which can help dogs remain active. Your veterinarian may start treatment from the earliest diagnosed stages of osteoarthritis.
EARLY MANAGEMENT AND ITS BENEFITS
Once pain sets in, your dog is less likely to move and may put on a few extra pounds. That can put more stress on joints and may lead to even more inflammation and pain. It’s a vicious cycle.
LESS INFLAMMATION AND LESS PAIN
Controlling osteoarthritis pain with Galliprant can help your dog maintain a normal activity level. With less pain and inflammation, your dog may be more eager to go on walks and play fetch again. And it might be easier for your canine friend to maintain a healthy weight, so joints don’t become stressed.
