A Disease Modifying Osteoarthritis Drug
CARTROPHEN VET® (pentosan polysulphate) is a treatment for osteoarthritis, that provides pain relief by acting on the pathology within the joint that causes the pain. It also protects and supports the recovery of joint cartilage that is damaged by the arthritic process. CARTROPHEN VET has therefore been classified as a disease modifying osteoarthritis drug and represents a unique and rational approach to the medical treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs.
CARTROPHEN VET is at least as effective as Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and lasts much longer (Cartrophen versus NSAIDs)
