Common Questions and Answers about Ondansetron side effects in dogs


Also, some breeds, like Collies and breeds that were developed using the Collie could suffer fatal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> from it. It's just not worth chancing it. Animals are like people <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> that none of them should be given medication that was not prescribed for them, and in animals it's even more important since they can't tell us if they are feeling bad from taking it, we can only guess from what we can see, and sometimes by the time we notice a problem it's too late to help them.
With other nausea meds being completely out of our budget, we've begun using reglan injections. No <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> to speak of except for about 15 minutes of a little restless behavior, and then she's fine. It very effective on the vomiting as well and usually lasts a full 24 hours. Since reglan still has to be processed through the kidneys regardless, can you help me understand why the side effects are so much more severe with the oral meds as opposed to the injections?
While it is very effective, it also has some unwelcome <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> for kidney failure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogs</span>, which is nausea. Obviously, if a dog already has nausea, giving Omeprazole (with the rare but possible side effect of nausea), will just exacerbate the problem. I think it's worth trying for a few days, but if it doesn't seem to be having the desired effect, it's best to go back to the vet and try something else.
Not sure how you hooked onto a 6 month old post, but if you hit the "back to forum" blue words, you will be directed to today's post. We are a fairly active forum and you will find a lot of support and information here. Welcome to the forum and that is great news that you have gotten to week 3 triple with no side effect. I suggest you go to the top and "post a question" and introduce yourself.
He had similar problems when he treated with riba/pegasys <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 2009, so not sure if the incivek is magnifying the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> or that he's just older and the treatment is so rigorous. He really wanted to avoid using an ssri if possible, and was on wellbutrin, then added ativan for acute anxiety. Both of them didn't address his most difficult symptoms, and he finally decided he needed an ssri.
I think it boils down to which <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> you would rather not have, which <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> are relatively easy to handle, which drug is most effective in your situation, and which drug the doctor is most familiar with and most comfortable with in terms of your situation. I had the rash (but from inf and Riba, not inc), the nausea, the anal problems. The anal problems were easy to treat and control once I figured them out.
While the decadron took the edge off the pain and brought it back to the normal intense levl she experienced daily, she was struck with horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>, including being stuck awake for 4 days straight. This lack of sleep had a significantly negative effect on her colitis and her auto immune disorder aggravating them both.
I have experienced on 4 occasions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the last 6 years a rather weird Diarrhoea attack which really is painful and scary. Here is a description of what occurs. 1. Sudden abdominal pain which increases in intensity over a short time. The same sensation one might get when they are about to get Diarrhoea. 2. I go to the toilet and try excreting whatever wants to come out.
