Librela for Dog Osteoarthritis Pain Management

Give your dog more days of play


What is Osteoarthritis (OA)?

OA is a type of arthritis that happens when protective tissue in the joints is worn down, causing bones to rub against one another.

Dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds can have OA pain—it’s not just a condition seen in older dogs.

OA pain impacts how your dog moves and feels, and it can make it hard for you both to do the things you love to do together.

OA pain hurts, decreases your dog’s willingness to play, and affects their quality of life.

Is Your Dog Showing Signs of OA Pain?

An OA diagnosis can be missed in some dogs because the signs may be subtle or overlooked as normal changes related to aging. Nearly 40% of dogs show signs of OA pain, but less than half are actually diagnosed. Your dog could be suffering from OA pain if they’re displaying the following behaviors:

  • Limping after exercise
  • Slow to rise
  • Feeling stiff
  • Lagging behind on walks
  • Having difficulty jumping
  • Having difficulty with stairs
If your dog is showing any of these behaviors, speak to a veterinary professional.

Take the Dog OA Pain Checklist quiz to see if your dog could be showing signs of OA.

Scan the code with your phone’s camera to take the quiz.
