LOS ANGELES - Aug. 16, 2022 - PRLog -- Los Angeles dogs suffering from pain, lameness, and reduced activity due to arthritis can now find convenient, long-lasting relief at Simon Veterinary Surgical thanks to a new treatment offered by Dr. Patricia Simon.

Synovetin OA® is a treatment placed right in the dog's joints that reduces the inflammation and pain of osteoarthritis for up to one full year.

"For dogs with chronic joint pain, Synovetin OA is a simple, long-lasting, and safe treatment," according to Dr. Simon. "It treats inflammation and pain right where it happens – it doesn't go throughout the dog like pills, where you could have side effects."

Nearly 25% of US dogs suffer from osteoarthritis, causing pain, lameness, limping, limited movement and a poor quality of life. Many current treatments require daily administrations to provide short-term relief. However, clinical trial data has shown that just one treatment with Synovetin OA relieves pain and inflammation and improves mobility for up to one year.

"We're excited to be one of the very first veterinary hospitals offering Synovetin OA," Dr. Simon said. "Though my specialty is orthopedic surgery, it is no longer the only option for my patients."

This procedure involves the use of radiotherapy and Dr. Simon's team has completed the necessary training and licensing required to use Synovetin OA in all joints - other licensed clinics are usually only approved for elbows.

The active agent of Synovetin OA, developed by Exubrion Therapeutics®, is tin-117m, a unique medical radiotherapeutic. Synovetin OA:
  • Reduces inflammation and relieves chronic canine OA pain
  • Eliminates the key drivers of inflammation and pain
  • Is administered just once a year and can be re-administered again after a year, if needed
  • Is safe; no significant side effects were seen during clinical trials
  • Is given in the hospital and the dog can normally return home the same day
  • Can be used along with other treatments for OA pain management, if needed
