GOSSELIES, Belgium--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
TheraVet (ISIN: BE0974387194 - ticker: ALVET) (Paris:ALVET) (Brussels:ALVET), a pioneering company in the management of osteoarticular diseases in pets, announces the launch of its reference program dedicated to canine osteosarcoma.
Each year in Europe and in the United States, ~40,000 dogs are diagnosed with bone cancer. When the diagnosis of osteosarcoma is made, the prognosis of these patients is generally poor and survival short. Pet owners then actively search for information and answers to their questions.
Veterinarians are and remain the specialists and the first line to provide information. However, over the past year, we have been faced to increasing number of inquiries from owners of pets struggling with this disease. We then thought we could be a bridge with the mission to support pet owners in their search for information and solutions for their beloved pets.
In this context, TheraVet has been working closely with veterinary specialists to build a network of Osteosarcoma Reference Centers proposing in addition to the conventional non-surgical and surgical treatments, cementoplasty with BIOCERA-VET OSTEOSARCOMA RTU as a palliative and complementary option to conventional disease management. To date, twelve centers based in Belgium, France, United Kingdom, Ireland and United States are part of this network. The objective is to grow this network to reach the optimal geographical coverage by country, and therefore make the owner life easier when looking for a veterinary specialist who could help on the management of their pets’ disease.
In support to this specialist network, www.bonecancer.dog, a website fully dedicated to osteosarcoma, was created and is officially online since March 30, 2023. On this website, pet owners will find general information about the disease, the therapeutic options, and answers to their questions. But more importantly, they will be informed on the Osteosarcoma Reference Center close to their home where they could beneficiate from an osteosarcoma care including the cementoplasty.
