Zofran use in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran use in dogs


1916673 tn?1420236870 Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys. In kidney disease the kidneys are damaged and cannot excrete excess phosphorus, which then acts like a toxic substance in the blood. Reducing phosphorus intake is therefore important (check all the foods you may be feeding, including treats, for phosphorus content). The additional way of controlling it is to introduce a phosphate binder.
Avatar f tn He had similar problems when he treated with riba/pegasys in 2009, so not sure if the incivek is magnifying the side effects 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.
Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
Avatar n tn I've taken phenergan for many years for chronic nausea. The sedative effects wore off pretty quickly in about a month of regular use. Zofran is the gold standard of nausea/ vomiting management, and I believe it's now available as a generic making it an affordable option. Reglan doesn't really work well unless the nausea is caused by slow GI motility. It works by increasing motility and speeding up stomach and intestinal transit time.
Avatar n tn I am very familiar with the case itself and am writing about the particular scientific grounds that were at issue in that case, as it is a landmark for use of expert testimony.
585414 tn?1288944902 Hi lynnkay, As George Clooney said in Oh Brother Where Art Thou, you are in a tight spot. After reading your post I feel like a real whiner - and more appreciative of what I still DO have! A couple of positives in your post really stuck out for me. First, "I see a good person deep down...". I know exactly what you mean, that "good person" is always good no matter what is or isn't going on.
Avatar f tn I have heard of it being used in dogs going through Chemo but I would not use that without consulting a Vet first. Have you tried Dramamine or Ginger? What breed and size dog is this? How old? You could try a ginger capsule in something like lunch meat, cheese or pill pocket. I have had success using Ginger Snap cookies about 30 mins before leaving and take some along with me. Fostered a Greyhound here that was going to an adoptive home 2 states away and was going to be driven there.
Avatar f tn Helpful supplements you might consider include pure organic salmon oil (rich in omega-3 fatty acids), rhemania-8, CoQ10 - these can be given in rotation, so salmon oil (with a Vitamin E canine capsule, as salmon oil depletes this vitamin in the canine body) on day one, then rehamania-8 on day 2; then CoQ10 day three. These help boost the kidneys, improve the immune system and reduce inflammation. All quite helpful.
Avatar f tn I've been on birth control for about 6 months. No problems. This second week in January I ate a few hot dogs, felt nauseous didn't vomit even though I wanted to to get it over with but the feeling went away. So I was fine, then after I worked out the next day and drank milk felt nauseous didn't vomit. Do days later passed and something triggered, like clicked in my head automatically saying if I eat I WILL throw up.
Avatar f tn (I'm 36 weeks now and finally not needing to use it so much) Zofran didn't do anything for me. I hated the idea that I needed to take it so often, but I couldn't eat without it. (I could barely even eat with it but that's beyond the point) the nausea should start to diminish around 12-20 weeks. You need to be your best so your body can take care of your baby. (this is how my midwife reasoned with me when I said I hated feeling dependant on my medicine) just remember it won't last forever.
18226532 tn?1463520489 I've seen that play out right before my eyes with my own dogs. With 2 other dogs in our pack, we had to keep a close eye on things and had to intervene a few times. It's a hard thing to see amongst formerly bonded pack members, but you can't take it personally. Definitely check out the Chronic Kidney Failure group. Tony has a ton of great advice based on solid research that can help maintain what kidney function remains.
7157455 tn?1393307449 I think its dumb, because one study somewhere yeilded a few of the same results with overuse of a pain killer that is safe to use IN MODERATION. Not to be overused. As far as the zofran controversy, without it I would of been in really bad shape. By 20 weeks I had lost 25 lbs, and wasn't gaining. I was still loosing actually. I'm 5 foot 9, and got down to 150. That's lighter than I was before I hit puberty. I was skin, bones, and baby.
Avatar n tn who knows The nausea was so bad I had to be rehydrated 3 times in the ER. Ginger root steeped in hot water really helped. Today I get very nauseous with migraines and drink ginger tea - and just recently found a flavored water - peppermint water that helped with the last bout.
Avatar n tn You'll want to put him on a diet as low as possible in phosphorus - that stuff is deadly in dogs with kidney failure. Calcium is a phosphorus binder and remove it fromthe body. A plain old Tums tablet once or twice a day (depending on how badly your dog is doing) will help a great deal. Add some pepcid or zantac, but keep a close eye out for loss of appetite.

Avatar m tn more than I thought it would. God bless the people that can work out swim and walk their dogs I miss all that can't wait to do it again soon I hope. But I did get some good news today and I thank God for that!!!!!
Avatar f tn It's the toxins in the blood and digestive tract that are causing the nausea. Ondasteron (Zofran) is a fairly good anti-emetic for dogs. It should stop any vomiting within 10hrs. However, be aware of the side effects and refer back to your vet if any seem to be starting. There is also a danger of some adverse liver effects with this drug, so I would use Milk Thistle as a supplement to help protect the liver while he is on it. Don't stop using the phosphate binder.
612876 tn?1355518095 Hitch is getting dropped off for surgery at 9 AM, so if I'm out of zofran by 6 AM and not holding down my other meds, we can just swing by the hospital and drop me off after the dog gets dropped off. I imagine if they have to administer IV zofran in the emergency department to get me to hold down the rest of my meds, they'll probably be irritated enough to hunt down my doc to get her to get this prior authorization done so I can get my Rx filled??
4043517 tn?1374010173 Today after progress I lost my balance, grabbed the rail on the front porch to steady myself but kept falling. Went backwards, hit my head on a brick, broke at least one toe, soaked in Epsom salts, bloody and foot swollen, butt and side throbbing, goose egg on my elbow. Confused. **** this hurts. Back to like my bike wreck. I feel so awful right now. **** **** ****. Thought I had this under control. Apparently not. My foot hurts so bad. My head is swollen.

Avatar n tn Please just give it a few more days, I think the first 1-2 days can't count because our bodies use up all the drug we have stored in it. Then the sh**t hits the fan (oops sorry LOL). Keep up w/the meds you have. You'd be surprised how bad it is w/o them. You're on the downhill slope-and we are at the bottom cheering you on!
Avatar n tn Watch out for people's subtle judgments and directive pronouncements--however it is important to glean from them what you can use in your own program. They are just trying to help. My definition of chronic pain includes anxiety issues for sure---some of us would rather have physical pain!! So you do qualify flutterby and i think you as a mom of 3 could have something of great value to add to our conversation. Please feel free to do so here. I am a dad of three girls so i can relate.
Avatar f tn In January 2015 I had hives and swelling on my fingers from a reaction to medication. I started Hydrocodone dose of 2.5 at the beginning of February 3-4 times a day. By the end of March I was taking 1-2 doses of 3.5 a day. At that point I started using my hands and pain increased so I was taking a dose of 4 twice a day. April and May were good at that dose. Then the nausea started in June - I haven't started tapering yet but I think my body is wanting more and thus the a.m. nausea.
Avatar f tn Other alternatives are rice bones - you can make them yourself or buy in (I use Goodboy varieties and my dogs love them). Which canned kd food did you try? Have you tried Hills renal? Most dogs will eat it. It's more palatable than many. And you could drizzle a teaspoon of organic honey on the top, just to entice him.
Avatar m tn However, taking a second medication in order to tolerate another medication is not a smart solution. Phenergan and Zofran are not a medication I want to take every few hours...not a good idea. I appreciate the suggestion but have already explored that option and all of my doctors do not like that solution which makes complete sense to me.
Avatar f tn I haven't even SEEN him for 6 weeks. He took a month's vacation and they staff won't get me in this week. I mean WILL NOT. A bit of an attitude there, so I don't want to stay with that office anyway. There are NO other gastros here who treat HepC except one decrepit old man who couldn't even remember me when I went in for CT scan results that HE ordered and was looking at. I think Victrelis, even with the anemia issue, would be much better for me.
Avatar m tn Sorry guys the only reason why i was concerned is because back in jan or early feb I let a army buddy of mine use my nail clippers(he sleeps around a lot) and i can not remember if i used them in the 4 day window period that he did and i can not remember if he might have bleed on them
Avatar n tn I am still thowing up in spite of phenergan, zofran and ativan. In my mind I am outside gardening but the reality is I can't do much. My biggest accomplishment yesterday was dragging myself to get my blood work done, and sticking a chicken in the oven. Today, I am having trouble just writing this. My chemo nurses kind of led me to believe I would be right as rain within a couple of days of my last treatment.
Avatar n tn He would take 30 25mg tabs per day! I've never used more than four per day and only use it once in a while. The only reason I even brought it up was we were discussing amphetamines which are seriously more dangerous. It's like a beer compared to a triple shot of whisky. The point is that a lot of things sold in healthfood stores can be detrimental to your health if used improperly. We addicts are really at risk when it comes to pills, aren't we?
544292 tn?1268886268 You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recover. I believe in you!
