Librela for Dogs

Librela for Dogs - Alleviating pain in arthritic dogs

Osteoarthritis can be extremely painful for dogs. Luckily, there's now a once-a-month product that offers pain relief: Librela.

Librela is a veterinary medicine used for the alleviation of pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. It contains the active substance bedinvetmab.

The active substance in Librela, bedinvetmab, is a type of protein called an antibody. Antibodies are created by the body to fight infection and disease. Librela is 'monoclonal' because it was made by cloning a single type of antibody that has been found to bind specifically to nerve growth factor (NGF), a protein that is involved in promoting pain. By binding to NGF, Librela reduces the level of pain signals sent from damaged joints to the brain. The licensed dose regimen for Librela is one injection every four weeks.

Some dogs and cats may have concurrent conditions that require administration of several medications, and some may not be able to tolerate NSAIDs as a result of other conditions. There are also issues with owner compliance and difficulty in administering NSAIDs in some patients.

Librela (Bedinvetmab) works by targeting Nerve Growth Factors (NGF), which have key involvement in osteoarthritis pain. As monoclonal antibodies, they are eliminated by the body in the same way as naturally occurring proteins, with minimal involvement of the liver or the kidney.
