In this episode, host Alyssa Watson, DVM, is joined by Nina R. Kieves, DVM, DACVS-SA, DACVSMR, CCRT, to talk about her recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Osteoarthritis Pain in a Cat.” Dr. Kieves reminds us that osteoarthritis is often a primary problem in cats, and it has to be managed long-term with a multimodal approach. She discusses practical ways to approach feline orthopedic examinations and how to reasonably use medications—including NSAIDs. Dr. Kieves also shares her take on the newly-approved monoclonal antibody therapy (frunevetmab) to treat cats with OA.
