Why Galliprant is a first-line choice for canine OA  treatment.

  • First-in-class non-COX inhibiting NSAID

  • Targets the EP4 Receptor

  • Use for All Stages of OA*

  • Safe to Use Daily

How Galliprant Works

Not all NSAIDs work the same

While other NSAIDs on the market are also proven effective against canine OA, Galliprant is the only one that specifically blocks the EP4 receptor for reliable, safe relief. That’s why veterinary clinics stock Galliprant more than any other brand name NSAID.4

Proven Efficacy

  • Galliprant doesn’t just mask pain; it controls inflammation and pain at the source by targeting the EP4 receptor of PGE2.
  • In a real-world study, young** dogs treated with Galliprant continuously for 4 months showed significant improvements in gait analysis, overall mobility and comfort, quality of life and sleep quality.5
  • Galliprant was proven effective at improving pain interference, pain severity, quality of life and veterinary assessments.6

Proven Safety

  • Unique MOA reduces the impact on organ health.7,8
  • Safety of label dose is supported by laboratory study in healthy dogs receiving ~15x the dose continuously for 9 months.

Dosing & Administration

The dose for Galliprant is 0.9 mg/lb (2 mg/kg) once daily. The safe use of Galliprant has not been evaluated in dogs younger than 9 months of age.

Most dogs can be dosed with a whole or half a tablet once a day for effective canine OA pain relief (dogs weighing less than 8 lbs (3.6 kg) cannot be accurately dosed). You should prescribe Galliprant in half-tablet increments, except when using the 100mg tablet this should not be broken in half.

Dogs weighing less than 8 lbs (3.6 kg) cannot be accurately dosed. Only the 20 mg and 60mg tablets of Galliprant are scored. Dosages should be calculated in half-tablet increments, except when using the 100 mg tablet because it is not scored and should not be broken in half. For dogs weighing more than 150 lbs (68 kg), use a combination of tablets and half tablets to achieve the appropriate dose.

Canine OA Treatment Guidelines

For dogs in stage two of OA  and beyond, experts recommend 1-3 months of daily non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) therapy in newly diagnosed cases before considering tapering, with moderate to severe cases often requiring lifelong daily treatment.9,10,11

Stage 1 - Asymptomatic

No clinical signs but OA  risk factors present
●   Breed
●   Intense activity
●   Excess body weight
●   Joint injury
●   Joint surgery

Stage 2 - Mild OA

●   Inconsistent and subtle changes in gait and posture

●   Occurs with or after activities

●   May appear stiff after periods of rest but appear to warm out of it

Stage 3 - Moderate OA

●   Obvious changes in gait and posture

●   Persistent lameness

●   Some difficulty getting up or laying down

Stage 4 - Severe OA

●   Severely abnormal gait and posture

●   Reluctant to move

●   Marked difficulty getting up, laying down or going up/down stairs

Even in their early years, there are many factors that place dogs at greater risk for canine OA

  • Breed Predisposition

  • Intense Activity

  • Joint Injury/Surgery

  • Obesity

Galliprant is specifically designed to treat both  inflammation and pain without tradeoffs
