01893-A: A Novel, Practical, and Cost-Effective Treatment for Canine Arthritis
Grant Status: Closed
A large percentage of the canine population is affected by Osteoarthritis, a painful and often debilitating condition that often involves multiple joints. In this study Dr. Roush will conduct a rigorous prospective, randomized and double-blinded clinical trial evaluating the effectiveness of dextrose injection in clinical canine patients suffering from Osteoarthritis. Outcome will be evaluated by veterinary lameness examination, computerized force mat measurement of ground reaction forces, measurement of range-of-motion, radiographs and post treatment owner questionnaires. If successful, this novel treatment will lead to improvement in lameness and patient comfort in a canine patient population for whom few other viable treatment options exist.
