The major focus of this resource is the conservative management of osteoarthritis.



As more is learned about the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis, we are also becoming more aware of how to implement treatments. Multimodal Management of Canine Osteoarthritis takes an evidence-based approach to the canine patient with osteoarthritis, pursuing the objective of the best available medicine by a variety of means multiple drugs, agents, adjuncts and delivery methods. The major focus of this resource is the conservative management of osteoarthritis. Authors and leading authorities in the industry, Steven M. Fox and Darryl Millis, take a clear and visual approach, overlapping two three-pointed triangles of management: medical and nonmedical. Medical management includes NSAIDs, chondroprotectant and adjunct, while the non-medical management includes weight control/exercise, EPA-rich diet and physical rehabilitation. Each of these approaches has been independently shown to be effective, and while there are no published works on their collective synergism, the multimodal concept is intuitive.
