A clinical research study focusing on pain management in dogs living with osteoarthritis of the elbow


What is the Dog Elbow Pain Trial?

This clinical trial aims to confirm the effectiveness and safety of a new medicine to control pain associated with osteoarthritis of the elbow in dogs. If your dog qualifies for this study, you should expect to stay in the study for 90 days and have 7 scheduled visits with the veterinarian conducting the study. You will also be required to provide weekly behavioral assessments of your dog.

Because this is a study that is intended to support the drug’s approval, it needs to be “controlled”. This means some dogs receive treatment and others undergo the preparation and everything leading up to an injection of the medication, but do not actually receive the medication being tested. This study is also “blinded” or “masked,” meaning neither you nor the veterinarian making observations will know if your dog received the treatment or not until the end of the study. All owners of untreated dogs will be given an opportunity at the end of the study for their dogs to receive the investigational treatment at no charge.

Does my dog qualify?

Your dog may qualify if it:

  • Is at least 1 year old.
  • Weighs more than 11 pounds.
  • Has a confirmed diagnosis of elbow pain due to osteoarthritis that impacts its’ mobility and quality of life.

Other study criteria may apply. The veterinary investigator will decide if your dog is a good candidate for this study.

If qualified, your dog would receive (at no cost to you):

  • Investigational medicine or the procedure without injection of the medication.
  • Study-related exams and tests.
  • Time with a local veterinarian.

Is it safe to enroll my dog in this study?
Over 200 dogs have been treated in safety studies, including client owned dogs with elbow pain. This study is primarily focused on confirming the effectiveness of the drug. All dogs will be closely monitored, and, in the event of an adverse response or unexpected issue, we would care for your dog as if they were part of our own family. Please feel free to discuss any hesitations with the treating veterinarian, and if at any time prior to treatment you decide not to enroll your dog, you can do so at no charge and with no questions asked.
