Meloxicam use in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam use in dogs


Avatar m tn Your vet could have dispensed something different (like tramadol) to use in the transition. GI protectants would be appropriate too. I hope this answer didn't come too late to help you. good luck.
Avatar n tn My dog is also in kidney failure. He will be 14 this Friday and he is a yorkie. HIs name is Zack. We pulled him out from deaths door this spring when he suddenly started drinking like crazy, peeing like crazy, not eating, vomiting because he drank too much etc.
1916673 tn?1420236870 It is common for younger dogs with low PCV levels to have substantial flea infestation or intestinal hookworms, though any problem that causes bloody diarrhea can lead to a low PCV (because younger dogs simply haven’t enough iron stored in their bodies to replace lost blood). In older dogs, the problem might be from an immune system condition, liver disease, bone-marrow disease, cancer or chronic kidney failure.
4190741 tn?1370181432 Metacam should be d/c it is a very dangerous drug and leads to kidney failure in not even consider this one. this is a NSAID and they are not safe for use in cats. gabapentin...use only if absolutely necessary, its not highly recommended. used mainly for nerve pain. the other 3 are pain meds...and buprenorphine is tolerated best.
Avatar f tn The oral form was not approved for use in cats at all. However, veterinarians are allowed to use medications in an “extra label” or “off label” manner, meaning they can legally prescribe oral meloxicam for cats." Please keep us updated, I hope all is well. Certainly better safe than sorry right?
1550149 tn?1340004330 It is mainly used in treatment of restless leg syndrome and fibromyalgia in human beings. Besides, it has some other veterinary usage for rabbits, cows, dogs etc. and also in transportation of fish. Whether the use is on human beings or on the animals or on fish, tramadol works on the central nervous system and works as a sort of pain killer or stress reducer. In case of human beings, it works on the µ receptors and thus controls the signal of pain that the nervous system sends to the brain.
Avatar n tn It's imperative that you speak to your vet and get her on some kind of anti-inflammatory medication. In the 2 dogs I had with severe arthritis, one dog had it in his hips from an early age - around 5. He was on rimadyl for years, and during his last year we went to deramaxx. Rimadyl is pretty cheap because it's been on the market for quite some time. Deramaxx is much more effective, but also more expensive.
Avatar m tn Last week all of a sudden he had a severe nerve damage in his front leg. Since then he has stopped taking any food. If we give it anything it vomits. He is not even accepting milk or chicken Doctorsgave him Bcomplex etc but no use. He vomits. Yesterday traces of blood were also seen in his vomit. Kindly advice how to make it eat. He is growing weaker.
3297715 tn?1349023948 My family dr has me on Meloxicam 15 mg. I have arthritis in my hands and neck but I can't help but wonder if this could be from the Hep C as it has never bothered me prior to tx. I still have to an ultrasound in a few weeks to find out it the virus is cleared but I am doing much better since my last post. Thank you to everyone who was there for me during my time of need. You helped me so much I couldn't imagine what I would have done without you.
1198664 tn?1368651412 But I got prescribed some Mobic.(meloxicam) It is anti-inflammatory so I do not use it too much because the havoc on the system..I have to agree with ariley too..The Dr has a whole lot of stretches for my Hub to do because of serious back issues. So be that said, I am glad you are doing really good..No cravings that is the best News I have ever heard on here!! Ya you do Rock!
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar m tn It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
Avatar dr m tn you back pain suffers know the drill. This summer I had the facet injections and blocks in order to see if I was a candidate for RF Rhizotomy. It was determined by two specialists I was. Before diving into another invasive procedure, I visited a pain management doctor. ONE of the many things we did was try Celebrex. Now I was very skeptical as it had done nothing prior to surgery. But once my spondy was fixed I though - let's try it again.
544292 tn?1268886268 This thread is full of helpful and kind people who want to help you get off this terrible drug. Please snuggle in and make yourself comfy. I know you can do it!
272434 tn?1228610809 last year. This is the best I have felt in years. I also have Meloxicam, Tramadol and Flexeril. The last two I can take more than once a day as needed. Good luck to all of us. BTW I have found that aqua aerobics really helps. It will hurt for at least the 1st week but it is worth it. The more you sit, the more stiff you become. You have to move. If you are retired or disabled ask your insurance about Silver Sneakers or Silver and Fit or any exercise program.
Avatar n tn People with diabetes heal slower for example. use of MSM is a natural anti-inflammatory and has been shown in research to shrink the size of disk herniations. I would also suggest B complex vitamins and use ice at home not heating pads. Disk problems are inflammation. You control inflammation with ice not heat. I have disk herniations and was once basically paralyzed in my left arm due to disk bulging. Disk bulging is seen much like a Schmorl's node.
Avatar dr m tn I know PeekAwho had this not long ago, but she is having additional back issues so it is hard for her to say the RF was a good solution. It is an interesting procedure. We use a similar procedure in horses with a certain type of lameness. However it is an actual "neurectomy" where we physically remove a segment of the nerve. But it is also more easily accessible than this Medial Branch from the facet in the human spine. I'll report here my experience.
975514 tn?1325001538 Also, I think what is going on in your environment is just as important as what is happening in regards to your health care management choices. You could be exercising five days a week, eating right and taking the right balance of vitamins and medications, but if you have a stressful job or a bad relationship at home that you are not managing, your health and your fibromyalgia can definitely flare up.
Avatar n tn A few days ago I had a sensation of the floor vibrating under one foot. Since then I have realized it is my foot. It is felt in bloth feet, one at a time. Never both at the same time. I feel it when I am standing r walking. It is like an intermittent buzzing sensation. It comes in short bursts on after the other then stops. It will happen when walking and I will feel it with every third or fourth step. What could be the cause?
Avatar n tn What's the right humidity level in the house - whatever's comfortable for you, no set number. 5. How often to use saline irrigation - 1 or 2 times a day. 6. Thyroid - wouldn't cause this. My thyroid levels being high means my thyroid is slow - definitely need to follow up and be checked soon though, and Niacin and B-complex vitamins wouldn't affect that level. Told him Rhinocort and Asteline made me worse. He wanted to know which one.
Avatar n tn most cat vaccines fall into the modified live catagory, although there are at least 3 killed vacs in use. all three types work the same way, but they're prepared differently. theres alot of controversy about their use and side effects. several strains of vacs still under research and are considered lower risk, such as transdermal, oral and intranasal to your Vet about these options..
Avatar n tn Limit your time in the tub or shower. Bathe in warm — not hot — water. Use gentle cleansers or gels with added moisturizer. Gently pat your skin dry. Use plenty of moisturizer. Keep stress under control. Stress and anxiety can trigger itching. Consider counseling.
Avatar n tn For about 6 weeks I have been experiencing mid back pain when I wake up in the morning. The pain is so bad, I cannot go back to sleep, and NO position change helps. I must get out of bed and start walking around or sit in a chair for the pain to start going away. After an hour or two, the pain basically disappears. The pain seems to be emanating from my spine, and tensing up the back muscles nearest the spine.
