As a veterinary surgeon, I treat a lot of patients with osteoarthritis. We have long been in need of an evidence-based resource for veterinarians and pet owners and I am very excited by the launch of CARE.

I have referred numerous patients to Dr. Kristin Kirkby Shaw for rehabilitation post-operatively, as well as long-term medical management plans for osteoarthritis. Dr. Kirkby Shaw is extremely thoughtful and thorough in her approach to arthritis management, which shows in her dedication to education and research in the field as well as her patient management.

CARE provides invaluable information for both veterinarians and clients alike. I am excited to see the impact that such a trusted resource will have for my clients. I see CARE translating to better collaboration between the veterinarian, surgeon, and client to improve the overall comfort and mobility of the dogs in our lives.
