Osteoarthritis (OA) - Novel and Targeted Therapies That Can Alter the Course of Disease

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. Matthew Brunke discusses both external and internal targeted therapies that can greatly benefit dogs with osteoarthritis including:

    - Laser therapy / photobiomodulation and the use of lasers in the veterinary office and what owners can do at home

    - Injectable therapies and intraarticular injections for treating OA: hyaluronic acid, regenerative therapies (PRP), and a newer treatment option called radiosynoviorthesis (Synovetin OA)
