Zoetis, a global animal health company released an article titled “The New Science of Cannie Pain”
The article is in regard to the current state of disease with regard to osteoarthritis (OA) in 2 out of every 5 dogs and states that it is believed to be greater than 20% and growing as dogs live longer and obesity is becoming more of an issue.
OA is caused by many factors in both large and small dogs, including developmental issues, injury and obesity. Poor conformation often leads to OA early in life. Conformational changes impact both large (hip dysplasia) and small dogs (patellar luxations).
The article further states… “There is no cure for OA, however, early diagnosis and a multimodal management plan, including pain control, can help keep dogs active, manage weight, and support the quality of life of dogs with OA.”
The article did not take into account PetVivo Holdings, (OTCQB: PETV).
Advances in veterinary health care are providing meaningful improvement in our pets’ lives. There are ongoing innovations in veterinary treatments, preventative medications, diagnostics, screening tools, imaging (MRIs and other scans), wellness products and therapies supported by owners willing to pay for these treatments.
PetVivo, Inc. (OTCQB: PETV), is the producer of “Kush”, which is a veterinarian-administered intraarticular injection for the treatment of osteoarthritis and other lameness issues in dogs and horses that is intended to provide a lubricious cushion within the joint and between the bones to reinforce cartilage. KUSH is scheduled for expanded commercial sales and the development of its proprietary mucoadhesive active agent delivery products.
Kush is made from natural materials (collagen elastin and heparin), typically lasts for 12 months or longer and can be repeated annually or as needed.
PetVivo is expected to expand commercial production and availability of Kush in Q1 2021, in the $4.8 billion dog and horse therapeutics market.
PetVivo Holdings, Inc. made a name for itself when a successful Kush case study came to light when Fender Bender, a racehorse suffering from osteoarthritis, was put up for sale and claimed for $3,000.00 and the new owner treated him with PetVivo’s Kush. Fender Bender won at Canterbury Park on August 4, 2020.

Any of the majors in the space could benefit from PetVivo’s proprietary assets, but while PetVivo may or may not be on an acquisition path, it is on an aggressive growth / valuation path.
