Pain medicine study seeking dogs with osteoarthritis

PULLMAN, Wash. – Pet owners are invited to bring their dogs with osteoarthritis to be part of a Washington State University study testing a medicine to control pain and inflammation. Enrollees will need to bring their dog to the WSU veterinary teaching hospital clinic four times over an approximate five-week period.

The comparative orthopedic research laboratory in WSU veterinary clinical sciences is evaluating the effectiveness, safety and oral acceptability of a flavored tablet for dogs diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the shoulder, hip, knee or elbow joint.

The medicine is a member of a class of products known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that are used to control pain and inflammation. The product is approved for dogs in Europe, but not in the U.S. 

For more information, please contact laboratory manager Nicole Kuhn at 509-335-7747 or nkuhn@vetmed.wsu.edu. See the lab website at http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/researchVCS/corl/
