Asia knows a thing or two about hard work. She spent years fighting crime with the local police department. But, one day, she couldn’t jump into the car. Her owners watched in despair as Asia’s osteoarthritis caused too much pain for the demands of her job. With a heavy heart, her owners decided it was time for Asia to retire.
Fortunately, Asia’s vet prescribed daily Galliprant® (grapiprant tablets), a targeted NSAID that reduced her canine osteoarthritis pain and inflammation. Now, Asia is back to running, playing and swimming in the pool. Her family is incredibly grateful that Asia isn’t suffering, and that she can fulfill her new job – watching out for the family’s youngest member. Even in retirement, duty calls.
“It makes our hearts happy again, knowing that she’s feeling better and she’s not in pain.”

Asia came into our lives as a working dog. She is a retired canine right now. My husband is an officer for the local police department here, and she used to work with him every day.
It was hard when we decided that it was time for Asia to retire. I think she still wanted to go, and she still had that drive, but it was just — it was hard for her.
The most heartbreaking thing was when she would try to jump up to the car to go get to work, she couldn’t make it. And that’s what was breaking our hearts. That’s what was really killing us.
Asia’s life has changed drastically in the past year. When I first diagnosed Asia with osteoarthritis, I was very concerned.
I prescribed Galliprant® (grapiprant tablets) because it is anti-inflammatory, and it’s targeted specifically for osteoarthritis pain and inflammation. I thought that that would be a good option for her.
Since Asia has been on Galliprant, we’ve noticed a big difference in her. She’s running a little bit more. She’s jumping back into the pool, all by herself. We went for a ride in the car the other day because she got up in the car with no problem.
It’s like somebody turned the lights on. And she’s all bright and happy and go-lucky and just that jovial, Lab-like self again.
It’s just very sweet to see that, you know, she’s being part of the family again, and being that important family member.
She really is like the guard dog. She makes sure that my daughter is her priority now. Asia’s on guard and she’s on duty.
It makes our hearts happy again knowing that, you know, she’s feeling better and she’s not in pain.
