Evidence-based resources at your fingertips

Providing the best possible care for your patients is your top priority. But with a busy caseload, managing urgent patients, and educating pet owners, it can be challenging to adequately cover everything in the short time you have with each client. Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most prevalent diseases in our canine patients. It’s estimated that at least 1 in 5 dogs have OA, and unmanaged pain from OA contributes to many owners making the difficult choice to euthanize their pets.

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.

Dr.Kirkby Shaw and I have taught together for many years with the goal of improving quality of life for companion animals through rehabilitation and pain management.

The CARE website provides a much-needed resource for evidence-based and comprehensive information on osteoarthritis. Unfortunately, because arthritis is so prevalent and challenging to treat, there is much misinformation available online. Dr. Kirkby Shaw’s knowledge, experience, and expertise will allow her to wade through the hype and provide accurate and helpful information for veterinarians and clients.
