Cat Slowing Down? Could Be Arthritis!

I'm here to garner interest in two current clinical research studies at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine.

Currently, there are no drugs/treatments approved for long term pain control in cats. We are currently research two therapies: an NSAID (Non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug) and a biologic (a felinized antibody).

While we have the utmost confidence in our treatments and their efficacy, we have trouble recruiting participants- most owners don't even realize that their cats have arthritis. If your cat can't jump as high as it used to, if you have to add intermediate steps for it to get on the bed or couch, if your cat doesn't traverse the stairs as often, etc, this could be arthritis!

Both studies are very well funded- the screening process alone includes free bloodwork, free radiographs (x-rays), and free orthopedic, physical, and neurologic exams.

If you have any questions, please go to the following link, and contact us. If you're on the fence, call or email anyway- we can discuss your concerns, and answer any questions! Thanks!
