Ibuprofen use in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen use in dogs


Avatar m tn I just hope that I can be a lesson that long term sub use does have withdrawals, and they can be severe. And this in my story. Wait2long, thank you for asking the tough questions. As addicts, we have to do that. When asked how I will know if I can staff of the hydros, guess my answer is my strength in God, and the fact I can have the life I once lived back again. I miss my old happy self. And so do my friends.
Avatar m tn Don't use Ibuprofen. Is it possible to get some aspirin? That's safer for dogs. Ibuprofen is toxic. I hope I haven't caught your question too late....
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, there are a whole bunch of postings under "chronic cough" which seem similar to this. And some good ideas I am going to try I have had a constant cough for 3 plus years and for last year it has been phlegmy like yours. I am always coughing and clearing my throat at meetings like an old man. Worse in a.m. when I wake up or out in cold walking the dogs. Or.... talking on the telephone or in a meeting. Always have a "frog" in my throat.
Avatar n tn I have had this problem for well over 20 years, it started with telephones. If I use the hands free and dial, the ringing tones make my right ear thump like a change in altitude. I went to the ENT and had my hearing tested and they found nothing. This week I purchased an electronic keyboard piano and when I play certain notes it causes the thumping. The odd thing is if I hold the phone to my ear or use headphones for the piano it does not happen.
Avatar n tn Are you affected worse during weather changes or rainy or humid weather? Or in summer or winter or all the time? I ask because I live in a mild sub tropical climate and mine used to be worst at the start and during winter which is dry, but the last couple of years I'm affected really badly when it rains and in the humid stormy summers.
335728 tn?1331418012 Ok...I have put out APB's on people in the past but I started going through the member list today (boring Saturday) and WOW...are we ever missing some people! I have compiled a list of a some that I recall although I am sure that I have missed more than a few being that I have not much of a memory.
1548028 tn?1324616046 I really don't know why they want us to go to Mayo. I really feel they do not really know enough here (which they have been honest in saying this). Although, I don't think this is real common any where in children. I just know they have ruled out everything else. The dr. we see in Kansas City only specializes in MS and the dr. reports all state "suspected MS". They also say they can't totally rule out NMO. He has footdrop in the left and can't balance on one foot.
Avatar dr m tn Be especially careful when you feel tempted to use a human drug in your pet. . As a reminder, other human drugs that can be toxic or deadly in cats include acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve) and Pepto-Bismol. As a general rule, cats are extremely sensitive to human pain killers. Vets have access to safe drugs for cats (and dogs), whether it is for pain or constipation or other conditions, so please take advantage of it!
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn Also if I am sore in the morning, I use a heating pad before I get up and that helps tremendously. Good luck!!!
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn He said it was TMJ suggested taking strong ibuprofen doses, put hot compresses on jaws and ears, and use a bite sports guard... I did it for three days Then the worst headache ever in my life hit me.... i felt my head was going to explode. I had ended my anitbiotics. I thought it was sinuses so bought and took Advil sinus one in the morning and one in the evening. The relief was almost instantaneous although not absolute. I was happy though for I thought i got rid of the porblem...
Avatar f tn It’s scary as hell. I was chicken sh* t to use the at-home box after it states in the directions NOT to use it on the face. HOWEVER, this is the same thing your derm would do for upwards of $2000. I don’t have TIME right now to wait a month to see my judgmental derm who would first and foremost push antibiotics and topical on me before he’d agree to freeze it. Not to mention they will chastise you for picking at it.
Avatar n tn Tramadol is a very common pain reliever used in dogs and usually is given for short term use so there should be no withdrawal symptoms. One of my best friend's in San Diego's dog just had a mass removed from her side and was on tramadol for a week, I could always tell when it kicked in too! It is very, very common! xoxo- D.
699217 tn?1323442300 I just learned on another Medhelp forum that you should never give dogs ibuprofen because they cannot digest it well. Do you think I've hurt her? I quit giving it to her last year, because I had run out. I'd say in 4 years Ive probably only given her 2 or 3 months of regular use. thank you.
Avatar n tn I would recommend tapering down off the OC as much as possible, add some ibuprofen in between doses to see if that can get you to prolong the length of time between ther OC doses. You can also use your addiction to your benefit in doing this alos...just think "I wanna take some now, but if I wait another 3 hours, it'll feel much better!" This helped me eventually get where was waiting also a full day between doses, and the amounts went down too.
685623 tn?1283485207 One regular strength tablet of acetaminophen may cause damage to a cat’s red blood cells, limiting their ability to carry oxygen. In dogs, acetaminophen leads to liver failure and, in large doses, red blood cell damage. 3) Antidepressants (e.g. Effexor, Cymbalta, Prozac, Lexapro) While these antidepressant drugs are occasionally used in pets, overdoses can lead to serious neurological problems such as sedation, incoordination, tremors and seizures.

Avatar m tn Ibuprofen is TOXIC to dogs....It sounds as if she is still in good shape, but needs a prescription for pain meds. from your Vet.....Your Vet will have a selection of meds to treat your girl's, what I beleive to be, Arthrititis....They work wonders.... The yellow bile is stomach acid and the Ibuprofen could possibly be damaging her stomach lining.....Usually, dogs vomit bile when they've gone too long without food.....She needs to be fed 2 meals a day and a snack before bedtime.....
Avatar n tn My dog was not even seen by a vet in the er because she felt I did not need to see one. I came home and have been investigating ibuprofen and dogs. I have come to find out it is toxic to dogs. Should I take her to another er or is the amount she took small enough to not even worry about it??? Sorry if this posts twice, I am a new user and learning the ropes here.
790669 tn?1465192699 I'll call the humane society on people if it's freezing and their dogs are laying out in the cold, I'll call if I see they're starving. I stop and pick up turtles and take them to the other side of the road. I can't help but do it!! SOOO I'm just really in a funk. I do miss her though. I cried all night and I can't help it. I hope we get pregnant soon, because IF not I'll have about 3 more dogs. I'm actually trying to find a boxer or boxer/bulldog to breed boogie with.
Avatar f tn Sorry to be so abrupt but ibuprofen, the active ingredient in motrin, is EXTREMELY toxic to dogs! Even a small dose can lead to events that will kill him. It's best to check with your vet first on dosing, but he CAN have human aspirin as long as it's either buffered or enteric coated, like Ascriptin. But don't give him any other type of human OTC pain reliever because they are just not formulated for dogs.
782241 tn?1236539526 It can be in many cleaning products. It can be an inert ingredient in Accutane or in ibuprofen. Accutane does have in inert butylated ingredient and it is being named in lawsuits for Crohn's. But it could cause any autoimmune issue. What do you clean your shower with? I wanted to know what was in Arm 'n Hammer Clean Shower and after waiting 10 days to get a Material Safety Data Sheet ...
370181 tn?1428180348 I have friends who have country properties but they have fenced in large areas for their dogs. I'm not thrilled with the idea but one uses hot wire (could not afford to fence in a large area at this time). Glad all turned out well and you take a big sigh of relief.
Avatar n tn You can use an over-the-counter (OTC) decongestant combined with an anti-inflammatory analgesic (pain reliever) like Ibuprofen. However, you should not use decongestants for more than 5-7 days at a time. Symptoms can also be relieved by using a saline nasal spray or a nasal spray that contains corticosteroids. However the golden rule for chronic stuffy nose is steam inhalation. If inspite of the above treatment there is no relief,then you should rule out allergy to dogs.
Avatar m tn I'm sorry to put a dampener on this because it is good news that he seems much better. But I always thought it was inadvisable to give Advil (Ibuprofen) to dogs! I presume the vet diagnosed arthritis? Or was it something else? Usually Rimadyl is given, but there are other anti-inflammatory/painkillers which are suitable for dogs. If it is arthritis, do start him on Glucosamine and Chondroitin. It is extremely effective.
492921 tn?1321293496 I laid on the couch all day yesterday only getting up to get something to drink and to let the dogs in and out. Today the cramps are much better there still there but tolerable. I have noticed that the flow isn't as heavy as my "normal" cycle would be. I hope that it's better next month.
Avatar m tn In the meantime, instead of washing in soap and water, use a small bowl of tepid water with two or three teaspoons of salt dissolved in it. Let his paw soak in it for a few minutes, then dry thoroughly by dabbing (don't rub) with a clean towel. This will act as a good antisceptic until you can get him to the vet.
Avatar n tn The ingestion of aspirin or the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), most notably ibuprofen, results in worsening of both nasal polyps and the asthma. You have provided a nicely detailed description of your problems. Most notable is the temporal relationship between your moving into a new house and the onset of respiratory problems. This observation is strongly suggestive of your being exposed to one or more allergens in the new house.
1382889 tn?1505074793 For someone who hates taking medicine she says she should buy stock in the companies who make ibuprofen. Again this reminds me that there are so many people out there experiencing chronic pain. Sometimes I look at people it the store and wonder what, pain if any, they are feeling. This makes me also take great care in how I interact with people b/c you just never know what they are experiencing in their life.
