Is your dog experiencing pain? 

 Do you want to give your dog the gift of more days of play?

Did you know that studies show nearly 40% of dogs show signs of osteoarthritis pain, but less than half are actually diagnosed? What is dog OA pain? It is a painful, chronic condition that causes your dog to hurt all the time if not treated. Dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds can have OA pain - it is not a condition seen just older dogs. OA pain decreases your dog's willingness to play and effects their quality of life. Learn to identify the signs of OA pain in your dog by clicking the link below. Librela is the first and only monthly monoclonal antibody injection to effectively provide long-term canine OA pain control.

 Librela has been approved as safe and is metabolized and eliminated like naturally occurring antibodies, with minimal involvement of the liver or kidneys as it works differently than NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) by reducing NGF (Nerve growth factor) effects, a key factor in canine OA pain. Reduced canine OA pain has shown to cause increased activity and improved quality of life. Although some dogs may improve right away, the maximum benefit of this therapy will show after 2 consecutive monthly injections.   

     Call our office today to schedule a consultation with our veterinarians to begin therapeutic relief of chronic pain for your canine companion!

Remember to ask if this could benefit your best friend at your dog’s next annual General Health Exam.

  • "I can't say enough about these people. I was in there Saturday, knowing full well that we were at end of life with my Zoey Ann. They were compassionate, caring, and supportive as I made the decision to lay her to rest. The extra amount of support and time they took to make sure both of us were taken care of is beyond words. Thank you again for making Zoey comfortable in her last time here."
  • "My Husband and I just lost our Pet. PPVC did nothing but make us feel like Family including our beloved Groot. PPVC helped us through everything including the grieving of our loved one. They took us in when they didn’t have to and for that alone we will be forever greatly thankful for. we personally want to thank all the staff at Paw Paw Veterinarian Clinic for taking such respectful and honorable care of this Hicks Family. May our Groot Rest In Peace!"
  • "We got our giant baby in 2021 in Michigan at quarantine time. Had a terrible experience with a groomer. Now we have this scared giant that behaves aggressively. They were so kind and not judgmental! Refreshing that they had a plan to help us help him"
  • "We took our dog in for her yearly exam/shots. The vet and staff were great with our dog and the exam was thorough. We were also impressed with the long history in this area and their new building. We hope to have a long relationship with this clinic."
  • "My cat was referred here by another vet to have a procedure. Everyone from the first consult to dropping her off to pick up were amazing. They called me to let me know all was well after the procedure. I checked in that night apologizing for being the crazy cat lady, but I needed to check on my baby and have that reassurance all was well again, being the worry wort I am. I believe I talked to Laura who was awesome and understanding and even invited me to call back in the morning to check again if needed. Every employee I came in contact with were happy and helpful. Kudos to all and million thanks!"
