Buster is happy-go-lucky and loaded with spunk. He’s a wire-haired Dachshund at the center of his mom’s world. But when Buster started limping and yelping with pain every time his mom would pick him up, she was distraught. She loved Buster more than anything, but knew he was in pain and just couldn’t bear to have him suffer. She didn’t know what was wrong, so she took him to the vet fearing the worst.
“Sometimes I'd look at him and my eyes would fill with tears. I'm going, what am I going to do you know? He’s part of me.”
—Marilyn, Buster’s mom

Buster’s veterinarian calmed mom’s fears and diagnosed Buster with osteoarthritis. She prescribed him daily Galliprant® (grapiprant tablets) - a first-of-its-kind, targeted NSAID that treats the pain and inflammation associated with canine osteoarthritis.
Now, thanks to the pain relief from Galliprant, Buster’s big personality and silly antics have returned. And his mom couldn’t be happier to have her quirky little sidekick back.
I have to have dogs in my life, and that’s the way it is. Buster in particular is just such a loving dog. And he’s just absolutely adorable. Well, you’ll see.
He follows me wherever I go, and I take him with me whenever I can. I saw one day he started dragging his leg a little bit. And then every time I went to touch him to pick him up, he would yelp.
I will never let an animal be in pain. I mean, sometimes I’d look at him and my eyes would fill with tears, I’d go, “What am I gonna do?” You know. He’s part of me.
We said well, if this is the time, it’s the time. And we went to the vet’s and tears are filling up in my eyes, and my husband can’t even be in the room, and… I thought that was it. And they said, “He just needs medication. We have options.”
I did my exam on Buster and determined that he had osteoarthritis. The treatment plan for Buster was to institute Galliprant® (grapiprant tablets). The goal with Galliprant is to reduce pain and inflammation in the joint.
Of course, I googled it, Galliprant. I brought it up, I did all the research. I said hey, now let’s do this. I’ll do anything for my dog.
We’ve definitely seen a change. It’s really helping him. I mean, it’s— we’re all seeing it.
He’s peppier. He’s jumping more. And he’s running in the backyard.
He’s happy. That’s the most important thing.
