Course Description

A Fresh Look at the Management of Osteoarthritis in Dogs
Osteoarthritis (OA) commonly affects dogs, most often because of a handful of orthopedic diseases. Unfortunately, there is little standardization in the detection, staging, and management of OA. This presentation will focus on the sources of OA in dogs, the impact of OA on limbs and mobility in dogs, the management options that positively impact dogs with OA, and the principles and logistics of long-term OA management programs. The functional stages of OA and management steps to consider at each of these stages will be discussed. At the end of this presentation, veterinarians will be comfortable with screening dogs for OA, staging OA in affected dogs, discussing the impact of classic forms of OA management, and developing a management program adapted to the dog and its owner.
