Managing Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats - Innovative Pharmaceutical Approaches

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    The pain of arthritis (osteoarthritis or OA) adversely impacts the lives of dogs and cats as well as the activities we can share in with them. But there is hope for these animals - beyond a prescription of pain pills.

    In this presentation (which originally aired as part of Session V of the Arthritis Summit) Dr. Lindsey Fry discusses innovative treatment approaches to managing pain in dogs and cats and how we can alter the course of the disease including:

    - The concept of pain as a disease (maladaptive pain)
    - A brief review of first line medications
    Innovative drug options:
    - Pregabalin (vs gabapentin)
    - Ketamine for treating maladaptive pain
    - Low dose naltrexone
    - Anti-depressant drugs (Amitryptiline)
