Call your veterinarian at once if your pet has any symptoms of bleeding in the stomach or intestines. These symptoms include black, bloody, or tarry stools, or coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds. Do not give any other over the counter cold, allergy, or pain medication without first asking your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving etodolac to my pet: Do not use this medication if your pet is allergic to etodolac, or if your pet has a history of allergic reaction to aspirin or other NSAIDs.

Your veterinarian may want to perform blood tests on a regular basis to make sure the medication is not causing harmful effects. Store etodolac at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medication. Symptoms of overdose may include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, drowsiness, black or bloody stools, coughing up blood, shallow breathing, fainting or coma.

Do not start using a new medication without telling your veterinarian.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has information about etodolac written for health professionals that you may read.

Very helpful for older dogs Jocko and I are both fairly elderly and arthritic. I gave him a small portion of my Etodolac a couple of times and it helped him so much that he now has his own bottle. I break the tabs in half and feed 1/2 per day. Great improveement, he is MUCH more mobile. 02/28/2014
I have been dealing wit Pet Meds for many years. The survice they give is the best. Always a quick call back if there is a problem and I always receive what ever I ordered in a quick time. Great job guys. 12/20/2013
Wonderful product! My 11 year old dog was slow to get up and you could see he was in a lot of pain. Medications affect everyone/dog differently of course but for us this was a lifesaver! We only give our 85 pound mixed dog a half tablet (200 mg) and it has done wonders. No complaints here! 04/11/2013
Excellent Results I've been giving this to my 11 year old Border Collie for 3 years now. She suffers from hip dysplesia and arthritis. After using Etodolac, she's back to running and playing with her frisbee and has no trouble getting up or sitting down. The product has been a tremendous help and I'm very glad my vet recommended it. 11/29/2011
Use Caution I put my 14 year old rottie mix on this (at the recommendation of my vet) when I heard that Zubrin was being discontinued. Within 4 days her appetite decreased. Within 8 days she vomitted and had bloody diarreah, which turned into just a bloody mess. She hasn't eaten in 11 days and we are still very sick. She's been 3 days without any pain medication at all so she isn't walking either. I am having to carry my girl everywhere. It's been a horrible 4 days!! Beware!!! She has never reacted to anything before. 05/03/2011

Answer: 
It could be your pet is developing an allergic reaction to the etodolac. Itching is a symptom of an allergic reaction. I would suggest you contact your veterinarian to discuss this.
