Piedmont Pharmaceuticals Gains FDA Approval of Animal Health Soft Chew Pain Medication
Date:6/20/2013

Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Last week the US Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine approved the first application of Piedmont Pharmaceuticals’ invention of a canine soft chew formulation containing a veterinary medicine. This flavored soft chew formulation contains carprofen and is labeled for the relief of pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis and the control of post-operative pain in dogs. It is the first and only flavored, soft and chewable medicine in the pain category.

The soft chew formulation will provide pet owners with a convenient and friendly way to medicate dogs. According to Roland Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Piedmont Pharmaceuticals, “The veterinary pharmaceutical industry has been working on a soft chew formulation for the past two decades and we are proud, following a relatively short development timeline, to have successfully registered this highly palatable, wonderfully textured product to positively impact the medicating experience for both dogs and their owners.” In addition Johnson noted that, “this formulation has been issued multiple US patents in the past two years.”

Osteoarthritis is a problem for dogs as they get older, particularly for larger breeds. A common sign that owners will notice in their dog is difficulty climbing stairs or jumping into the back of a car. Pain is the third largest veterinary treatment category in companion animal health.

Piedmont Pharmaceuticals is a company that develops FDA and EPA regulated products for animals, emphasizing dogs and cats. In addition, their pipeline includes livestock products along with a group of technology-related human products.
