Comparative Pain Research Lab Conducts Trial on Feline Osteoarthritis

The Comparative Pain Research Laboratory at NC State University's Veterinary Teaching Hospital is recruiting feline patients with osteoarthritis for an eight week trial of a nutritional supplement.

Participants will wear an activity monitor on their collar to help evaluate efficacy of the supplement. Costs associated with the study-- examinations, blood work, urinalysis, radiographs (if needed), and the nutritional supplement-- are covered at no expense to the owner. To be eligible to participate, cats must have osteoarthritis that is confirmed on examination and radiographs.
