Galliprant

Signs of limping, decreased activity levels, and stiffness, can be misinterpreted as signs of aging, but sometimes it can be symptoms of canine osteoarthritis. When your dog suffers from osteoarthritis, the cartilage between bones breaks down, resulting in inflammation and pain due to bone-on-bone contact. Cartilage is a rubber-like, resilient, and smooth elastic tissue that cushions the surfaces where two or more bones meet to form a flexible joint. When your dog is in motion, there is tremendous pressure on the joint. The cartilage, the joint fluid, and the connecting bones, all work together to allow smooth and flexible joint function while acting as a shock absorber. Scientists are not sure what causes the cartilage to breakdown but have found an enzyme that plays an important role in the process. Canine osteoarthritis doesn’t just affect older dogs, it can happen at any age and be caused by developmental disorders like hip and elbow dysplasia, abnormal stress on joints due to obesity, and trauma, or injury. When caught in the early stages, it can be easier to treat. Galliprant is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that treats canine osteoarthritis pain and inflammation. Unlike traditional NSAIDs, Galliprant targets a key osteoarthritis pain receptor in dogs, not the enzymes that help maintain kidney and liver function. Galliprant is available in tasty flavored tablets, in 20 mg, 60 mg, and 100 mg. Between going on walks, chasing the postman or the neighbors’ cat, your dog doesn’t have time for osteoarthritis pain. Bring relief to your dog so he can enjoy his active life again!
