What is Etodolac?

Benefits:

How it Works:

Etodolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.

What is etodolac:

Etodolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drug and is recommended for use in dogs for the management of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. Etodolac works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Etodolac may be used for other purposes than those listed in this guide.

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. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to any medications, or if your pet has; heart disease, congestive heart failure, or high blood pressure; stomach ulcers or bleeding; liver or kidney disease; asthma; a bleeding or blood clotting disorder. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating or if you plan to breed your pet.

What is the most important information I should know about etodolac:

Etodolac is FDA approved for use in dogs 11 lbs and over only. Etodolac is available by prescription as 300mg capsules and 400mg tablets. The usual dose of etodolac is 4.5-6.8mg per pound once a day. The maximum dose per day is 6.8mg per pound once a day. Etodolac can increase the risk of serious effects on the stomach and intestines, including bleeding or perforation. These conditions can occur at any time while the pet is taking etodolac. 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 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 should I avoid while giving etodolac:

Do not give your pet any over the counter cold, allergy, or pain medications without first asking your veterinarian or pharmacist. Many medicines available over the counter contain aspirin.

What are the possible side effects of etodolac:

Etodolac is rated 4.166666666666667 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Is itching a side effect?

Our dog is on Etodolac, once a day. The vet also has her taking fish oil. Could this be causing her to itch like crazy? (she is inside, no fleas)
Asked by: Hound dog
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.
