Book A Speaker

Osteoarthritis affects at least one in five dogs, although many experts believe that number to be much higher. It’s the leading cause of chronic pain for dogs, which is the primary reason for elective euthanasia.  OA is a disease every veterinarian, surgeon, and rehabilitation specialist will encounter regularly and one many dog owners need to better understand.  Early detection and a multi-modal approach to treatment is critical to helping dogs stay active longer and enjoy a better quality of life.
