- Genetics: Genetics have a specific relationship to joint diseases
- Breed: Certain breeds are at risk of developing joint diseases
- Body Weight: An increased load on weight-bearing joints increases the risk of joint disease
- Conformation: Body, leg size, and joint angles contribute to joint disorders
- Injury: Injuries are a common cause of OA
- Age: While joint deterioration can increase with age and cause OA, young dogs are also at risk

Treatment for OA Pain
Treat Dogs Once a Month With Librela
Librela is specifically designed to control canine OA pain with a monthly injection. It is a monthly subcutaneous injection, administered at the clinic by veterinary professionals. OA is eliminated via normal protein degradation pathways—just like naturally produced antibodies—with minimal metabolism by the liver or kidneys. Librela reduced canine OA pain, which led to increased activity and improved quality of life.
