Diagnosing Canine Osteoarthritis
The Importance of Compliance for Dogs with OA
As you know, canine osteoarthritis is a progressive, degenerative disease that not only causes pain but contributes to irreversible joint
damage.15 Fortunately, studies show that continuous, long-term use of NSAIDs provides progressive improvement in clinical signs, without
an increase in the rate of side effects.8,9,14
Specifically, using RIMADYL over the long term has been found to be a safe and effective treatment for OA.8,9 However, because they may
see such a remarkable improvement in their dogs, your clients may be tempted to discontinue treatment or only administer medication if
they notice signs of pain.
OA is incurable and will worsen if treatment is discontinued, so it’s essential for owners to continue to treat their dog’s arthritis.
New information is now available that may help your clients understand the importance of compliance.
The RIMADYL Rewards Program: Rewarding for You and Your Clients
The RIMADYL Rewards Program offers significant savings and incentives to dog owners to continue returning to your clinic
for ongoing care for their dogs with osteoarthritis.
With every RIMADYL purchase your clients make at your clinic, they receive RIMADYL Rewards Points that act as cash and can be
used toward RIMADYL or any other product or service at your clinic. As clients continue to provide their dogs with long-term
care, they will earn even more Rewards Points that they can use exclusively at your clinic.
