This review assesses the evidence for the efficacy of therapies used in the management of osteoarthritis in dogs on the basis of papers published in peerreviewed journals in English between 1985 and July 2007. Sixty-eight papers were identified and evaluated. They considered four alternative therapies, one use of functional food, two intra-articular agents, six nutraceutical agents, 21 pharmacological agents, two physical therapies, three surgical techniques and two combinations of weight… 
Review of the safety and efficacy of long-term NSAID use in the treatment of canine osteoarthritis
TLDR
The balance of evidence for the efficacy of NSAIDs supports longer-term use of these agents for increased clinical effect and there is no indication in the literature that such an approach is associated with a reduction in safety, although robust data on the safety of long-term NSAID use are lacking in large numbers of dogs.
Systematic review of efficacy of nutraceuticals to alleviate clinical signs of osteoarthritis.
TLDR
The evidence of efficacy of nutraceuticals is poor, with the exception of diets supplemented with omega-3 fatty acids in dogs, and greater access to systematic reviews must be part of the objectives of the veterinary science in the future.
Effectiveness of disease modifying osteoarthritis agents and carprofen for treatment of canine osteoarthritis
TLDR
The preliminary results imply the clinical benefits of PCSO-524 in combination with carprofen in the treatment of OA, and the greatest improvement was demonstrated in the CPF-PCSO group.
Comparative efficacy and safety of mavacoxib and carprofen in the treatment of canine osteoarthritis
TLDR
The positive clinical response to treatment along with the safety and dosing regimen of mavacoxib makes it an attractive therapy for canine osteoarthritis.
Effect of corticosteroids on articular cartilage: have animal studies said everything?
TLDR
A systematic review of 35 relevant in vivo animal experimental studies between 1965 and 2014 assessing the effects of CS on either normal cartilage, or in either induced osteoarthritis (OA) or synovitis found that in dogs, four identified studies concluded that there were beneficial effects with methylprednisolone acetate and triamcinolone hexacetonide therapy, while in horses, MPA was mostly deleterious.
Canine osteoarthritis: improving quality of life
TLDR
Pet owners may not be aware that this condition does not have to be an unfortunate process of old age but can be treated, and Veterinary nurses can play an invaluable role in supporting owners and monitoring a dog's response to treatment through arthritis clinics.
What is the evidence? There is only very weak clinical trial evidence to support the use of glucosamine and chondroitin supplements for osteoarthritis in dogs.

TLDR
The owner was interested in medical treatment for osteoarthritis but was concerned about potential adverse effects of NSAIDs and inquired about the use of glucosamine and chondroitin-containing nutritional supplements, either alone or as an adjunct, to reduce the dose or frequency of NSAID needed to control the dog’s lameness and pain.
Prospective Clinical Evaluation of Intra-Articular Injection of Tin-117m (117mSn) Radiosynoviorthesis Agent for Management of Naturally Occurring Elbow Osteoarthritis in Dogs: A Pilot Study
TLDR
117mSn IA injection was free of any obvious adverse effects, improved CBPI scores, and increased weight bearing in limbs with elbow OA providing preliminary evidence that 117mSn may be beneficial in the management of elbows with osteoarthritis in dogs.
Effect of a single intra-articular high molecular weight hyaluronan in a naturally occurring canine osteoarthritis model: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
This study characterizes the response to treatment with Hylan G-F 20, which can produce significant functional and pain level improvements in patients with OA, even those with factors related to worse response to Treatment.
Treatment of the Clinical Symptoms of Osteoarthritis in the Elbow Joints of Dogs Using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Therapy: A Randomized, Double-Blinded Trial
TLDR
There was a positive effect of NMR therapy (MBST®) on the treatment of OA in dogs and this results demonstrated that the response to NMR treatment was individualized for each dog.

Systematic review of clinical trials of treatments for osteoarthritis in dogs.
TLDR
A high level of comfort exists for meloxicam that the claimed relationship is scientifically valid and that its use is clinically efficacious for the treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs.
Randomized, controlled trial of the efficacy of carprofen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, in the treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs.
TLDR
Seventy dogs were included in a randomized, controlled, multicenter trial to test the efficacy of carprofen for relief of clinical signs associated with osteoarthritis, and two dogs had negative pretreatment and positive posttreatment fecal occult blood test results.
Clinical evaluation of a nutraceutical, carprofen and meloxicam for the treatment of dogs with osteoarthritis
TLDR
Changes in the ground reaction forces were specific to the arthritic joint, and were significantly improved by carprofen and meloxicam but not by the nutraceutical; the values returned to normal only withmeloxicam.
Clinical evaluation of firocoxib and carprofen for the treatment of dogs with osteoarthritis
TLDR
The reduction in lameness in the dogs treated with firocoxib was significantly greater than in the Dogs with osteoarthritis treated with carprofen, and this difference was statistically significant.
The therapeutic effects of tenidap in canine experimental osteoarthritis: relationship with biochemical markers.
TLDR
This study confirms that tenidap is an effective anti-osteoarthritic drug in this ACLS model where therapy was begun 4 weeks after surgery and under these conditions the effectiveness coincided with the suppression of IL-1 and metalloprotease activity, processes known to play a major role in the pathophysiology of OA lesions.
Long-term treatment with carprofen of 805 dogs with osteoarthritis
The pain-relieving effect of carprofen and tolerance to the drug were investigated in 805 dogs that were lame as a result of osteoarthritis. The dogs were of different breeds, ages and bodyweights
Efficacy of oral calcium pentosan polysulphate for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the canine stifle joint secondary to cranial cruciate ligament deficiency
TLDR
There were no differences either in functional outcome or in the radiographical progression of osteoarthritis between the two groups and the concentration of 5D4 in synovial fluid had decreased significantly in the treatment group compared with the placebo group.
Use of client-specific outcome measures to assess treatment effects in geriatric, arthritic dogs: controlled clinical evaluation of a nutraceutical.
TLDR
The test product was a special milk protein concentrate from hyperimmunized cows, previously shown to express antiinflammatory and antiarthritic activity in humans, and was well tolerated and serum chemistry findings remained within normal limits.
Double-blind evaluation of implants of gold wire at acupuncture points in the dog as a treatment for osteoarthritis induced by hip dysplasia
TLDR
Thirty-eight dogs with hip dysplasia were studied to evaluate the use of gold wire implants at acupuncture points around the hip joints and showed a significant improvement of locomotion and reduction in signs of pain.
