Description

Librela is an innovative drug for the alleviation of pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. The medication contains a canine monoclonal antibody (mAb) which targets nerve growth factor (NGF).

The product is administered by monthly injection and has been proven to reduce pain scores in dogs with osteoarthritis.

No wonder cure in a 13 year old Labrador suffering from osteoarthritis, but I noticed him walking a bit easier and for longer, in particular the first 2 weeks following the injection. I would recommend it.

Librella

maria Louise mcnamara

Hi my dog has just had her first injection at our vets and have seen an improvement for her, her next dose is paid for at the vets, but i am thinking that it will be cheaper getting it from yourselves moving forward, she is 32kg labrador and is 13half year old what dose do you think she will be needing just so i can look at cost from yourselves.

  • VioVet Staff

According to the datasheet your dog will need 1 x 20mg vial injected once monthly. This is a prescription only medication so you will need a written prescription from your vet to purchase it with us. More information on this can be found here.

Cats

Hazel Pratt

Is it possible this product be made available to cats in the near future?

  • VioVet Staff

There is already a cat licensed version similar to this medication called Solensia.

Delivery of Librela

Chris Thompson

My 12 year old Golden Retriever has just had her second monthly injection of Librela at my local vets. I asked if they could give me a prescription so that I could buy the drug online. They are quite happy to give me a prescription for tablets online but they refused to give a prescription for the injection, on the grounds that the product needs to be kept refrigerated both during delivery and between doses and this might not happen with an online delivery. Can you reassure me that Librela would be delivered in an insulated packet.

Other uses

Keith

My dog is 13 and has deteriorated disks disease, would this help him with his pain. He is on Loxicom and Gabapentine but they are taking his kidneys in to a bad state.

  • VioVet Staff

Librela is 'Indicated for the alleviation of pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs.' If the disc disease is causing osteoarthritic pain secondarily then Librela may help. I recommend discussing this with your prescribing vet as they can advise on off license use of the medication, and they will need to prescribe it for you anyway.

Cancer treatment and Librela

Julie

My dog is receiving chemo for lymphoma. Could she still have Librela injections?

  • VioVet Staff

There are no contradindications for using this medication in a dog being treated for lymphoma on the datasheet. I recommend discussing this with your local vet though as they will need to prescribe the product to your pet.

Librela

Pat Edwards

Can a dog have a Librela injection 2 days before her month is due ?

  • VioVet Staff

Dosing outside of the datasheet recommendations is an off license use of the medication. We cannot legally advise on off license use of medications but your prescribing vet can, I advise discussing this with them.

Administration

Daniel Wechsler

Is this via injection only please?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes this medication is administered by subcutaneous injection.

Luxating Patella

Sam

Can librela help with other joint conditions such as luxating patella?

  • VioVet Staff

Librela is 'Indicated for the alleviation of pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs.' Arthritis can occur secondary to a luxating patella so the medicaiton may help, but this depends on your specific pet. It is a prescription only medication so I advise discussing this with your vet.

  • VioVet Staff
