Early Screening & Treatment of Osteoarthritis
Sponsored by Elanco
Canine osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive disease that can occur during any life stage but is often not recognized until late in a pet’s life once significant clinical signs have developed. Assessing and screening patients for OA at a young age is imperative to ensuring early identification and support for these patients. To assist with this, the Canine OsteoArthritis Staging Tool (COAST) was developed by experts in veterinary surgery and pain management as a tool for practitioners to quickly and routinely screen patients for signs of OA.
