I wanted to post for Dr Rob Landry at the Colorado center for animal pain management in Westminster. In conjunction with csu boulder he is conducting a joint pain relief study of biologic interleukin 10. I have a friend whose dog is in the study and she has had fantastic results. To date NO dog has had side effects and ALL dogs have experienced near total relief of joint pain. There are study requirements but if your dog qualifies you will pay 110 dollars for your initial evaluation and all remaining study care is free. This is double blind so you may get a placebo but if so they will give the real medicine at the end of the 16 week study.
Dr Landry is having a hard time finding enough dogs and he really wants to conclude the study so they can move on to making this treatment a reality for arthritic dogs so I encourage you to reach out to him to discuss joining the study.

I do not work for him i am in the springs but i have a friend whose dog is in the study. Her elbows are SO bad that dr landry uses them as an example of how bad things can get but even ebby has had great results with the study. I think he would be open to the podcast idea. I am sure he would like to get the word out to tripawd owners about what he can offer for pain management . I would just call the office and see.
