At VMX, formerly known as NAVC Conference, Aratana hosted a half-day symposium showcasing NOCITA® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension), a long-acting local anesthetic that provides up to 72 hours of post-operative pain control following CCL surgery in dogs.

The panel detailed how they have successfully incorporated NOCITA into their practice protocols and take questions from session attendees.
Aratana also hosted a NOCITA lunch session for Veterinary Technicians (11:00 -12:30 p.m.) on Tuesday, February 6. Donna Sisak, CVT, LVT, VTS (Anesthesia) presented how NOCITA has helped her achieve a smooth and effective post-operative recovery.
Aratana continued to showcase NOCITA® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension), a long-acting local anesthetic that provides up to 72 hours of pain control following CCL surgery in dogs, at the Western Veterinary Conference (WVC) in Las Vegas.
Aratana held another educational CE session (10:00 -10:50 p.m.) on Monday, March 5 with Duncan Lascelles, BVSc, PhD, MRCVS, CertVA, DSAS(ST), DACVS, Kristin Kirkby-Shaw, DVM, MS, PhD, DACVS, DACVSMR and Mark Epstein, DVM, DABVP (Canine and Feline) participating in an interactive roundtable discussion on NOCITA, specifically detailing how they have successfully incorporated the long-acting local analgesic into their practice protocols.
As a key sponsor, Aratana featured NOCITA® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension), a long-acting local anesthetic that provides up to 72 hours of pain control following CCL surgery in dogs at Veterinary Orthopedic Society (VOS) in Snowmass Village on Saturday, March 10 through Saturday, March 17.

Other therapeutics from Aratana
ENTYCE (capromorelin oral solution) provides appetite stimulation.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: ENTYCE® (capromorelin oral solution) is for use in dogs only. Do not use in breeding, pregnant or lactating dogs. Use with caution in dogs with hepatic dysfunction or renal insufficiency. Adverse reactions in dogs may include diarrhea, vomiting, polydipsia, and hypersalivation.

GALLIPRANT® (gapriprant tablets)
for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs.
GALLIPRANT is a first-in-class piprant and a non-COX-inhibiting prostaglandin receptor antagonist (PRA). It specifically blocks the EP4 receptor, the primary mediator of canine OA pain and inflammation, and does not inhibit the production of many housekeeping prostanoids that maintain homeostatic functions.1

Store out of reach of dogs and other pets in a secured location in order to prevent accidental ingestion or overdose. Do not use in dogs that have a hypersensitivity to grapiprant. If GALLIPRANT is used long term, appropriate monitoring is recommended. Concomitant use of GALLIPRANT with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as COX-inhibiting NSAIDs or corticosteroids, should be avoided. Concurrent use with other anti-inflammatory drugs or protein-bound drugs has not been studied. The safe use of GALLIPRANT has not been evaluated in dogs younger than 9 months of age and less than 8 lbs (3.6 kg), dogs used for breeding, pregnant or lactating dogs, or dogs with cardiac disease. The most common adverse reactions were vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, and lethargy. Please see the full Prescribing Information for more detail.
