Osteoarthritis in pets is a common condition that can cause a lot of discomfort and reduce the quality of life for your beloved animal.

If you’re concerned your pet might be suffering from this condition, we encourage you to reach out to Partners Animal Hospital West Loop in Chicago, IL, at (312) 767-4762 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Understanding Osteoarthritis in Pets

Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is a condition where the cartilage in the joints wears down over time. This can lead to pain, swelling, and difficulty moving. Pets with osteoarthritis may have trouble doing things they once enjoyed, like jumping or running.

Signs Your Pet May Have Osteoarthritis

Pets can’t tell us when they’re in pain, but there are signs you can look out for, including limping, difficulty standing up, less interest in playing, and changes in behavior. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to take your pet to the vet for a check-up.

How Librela Can Help

Librela is a breakthrough treatment for managing the pain associated with osteoarthritis in pets. It’s given as a monthly injection by your vet and works by targeting a specific protein involved in sending pain signals.

The Benefits of Librela

Librela has been shown to significantly reduce pain and improve mobility in pets with osteoarthritis. This means your pet can have a better quality of life, enjoying more of their favorite activities without discomfort. Plus, because it’s a monthly injection, you don’t have to worry about daily medication.
