What Is Dog OA Pain?
Is Your Dog Showing Signs of OA Pain?
An OA diagnosis can be missed in some dogs because the signs may be subtle or overlooked as normal changes related to aging
Nearly 40% of dogs show signs of OA pain, but less than half are actually diagnosed
Your dog could be suffering from OA pain if they’re displaying the following behaviors:
- Limping after exercise
- Slow to rise
- Feeling stiff
- Lagging behind on walks
- Having difficulty jumping
- Having difficulty with stairs
If your dog is showing any of these behaviors, speak to a veterinary professional.

How to Prepare for your Vet Visits
Here are some tips to make your appointments with your vet as productive as possible:
- Pay attention to the physical and emotional behaviors of your dog before your appointment How is your dog acting? Do they have trouble playing, jumping, or climbing stairs? How do they seem to be feeling?
- Take videos and write down notes of your dog’s activity and behaviors to share with your vet. It’s important to talk to your vet about how your dog is moving and feeling so they can assess progress.
- Schedule monthly appointments. Before you leave an appointment, be sure to schedule your next visit to stay on track.
For the best possible results, Librela should be given to your dog by your veterinary professional once a month, every month. Because OA pain is chronic, it needs to be treated continually to see and maintain improvement.
