One ordinary disease. One extraordinary discovery

One ordinary disease. One extraordinary discovery

You’ve seen it every day since you started practising, but with this innovative new treatment, you’ll never see canine osteoarthritis (OA) pain the same way ever again.


For centuries, the focus of pain relief in canine osteoarthritis has been inhibition of the cyclooxygenase enzymes.1 However, recent breakthroughs mean we can now shift our focus downstream of these enzymes to the individual receptor that’s primarily responsible for canine OA pain: EP4.1 A new therapeutic targeting EP4 is the first in a whole new class of treatment, and offers a completely new approach to managing pain.1


Blocking the pain receptor without impacting other molecules and receptors means you can offer pain relief as soon as OA is diagnosed, without affecting the other prostanoids’ homeostatic functions mediated through their receptors.1,2 Targeting EP4 is the new way to treat pain from first diagnosis to disrupt the cycle of OA, and start improving pets’ welfare.1,3,4 And that calls for a celebration.


Join us at the London Vet Show for our 2-day event to experience this remarkable milestone. Our symposia on the 15th and 16th of November will cover everything you want to know about this new modality: what it means for vets, dogs and their owners, and how it’s already shaping the treatment of OA pain.


Visit us at our stand – N20 – for a whole new perspective on canine osteoarthritis, and to talk to the team about an innovation worth celebrating.
