Effectively treating joint pain in dogs and cats with degenerative joint disease can be difficult. To date the majority of these animals are treated in several ways:
- Inti inflammatory drugs
- Pain relieving drugs
- Nutritional supplementation
- Surgical intervention
- Special food (containing EFA omega 3 and/or nutraceuticals)
- Weight control
Unfortunately, these treatment options often only offer temporary relief and several medical treatments can have side effects. A new therapeutic option exist: the Goldtreat concept using solid gold implants with releases of gold ions (http://goldtreat.com/GB.aspx). This method is based on published scientific data and offer a positive effect on 70%-90% of the treated patients.
