|Does it have long-term side effects?||In target animal safety studies, EtoGesic Tablets were well tolerated clinically when given at the label dosage for periods as long as one year.||Patients on long-term treatment with NSAIDs, including Etodolac, should have their hemoglobin or hematocrit checked if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of anemia. NSAID medicines may increase the chance of a heart attack or stroke that can lead to death.||Laboratory studies in anesthetized dogs and clinical field studies have demonstrated that carprofen is well tolerated in dogs after oral administration.|
|Cautions||EtoGesic should not be used on cats or pregnant or nursing animals. EtoGesic can increase the risk of serious effects of the stomach and intestines, including bleeding or perforation. At the first sign of anything abnormal, stop using EtoGesic and call your veterinarian.||Do not use on Cats. Do not give to dogs that weigh less than 11 lbs. or under 12 months of age.||Contact the veterinarian if the pet has bloody, black or tarry stools, blood in vomit, or swelling or rapid weight gain due to fluid retention. Do not use on cats.|
|What are Customers saying Pros||Destiny has been on this product 14 of her 16 years due to a rare swelling of her paw. Now that she is older, it really takes the edge off. Wish more vets would reccomend it, just safer for the animals||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.||My poor old Lady and I share problems getting up and down ... the Novox has really helped her. Wish I could take some! (Just kidding, of course.) It really has made a difference in her mobility - and her disposition. Thanks!|
|What Customers saying Cons||-||"Within 4 days her appetite decreased. "||...will not take Novox...I don't know if it has a bitter taste..."...may cause kidney failure.|
|Vet Recommendations||Currently under review||Etodolac is an excellent prescription nonsteroidal anti inflammatory medication most useful in controlling acute and chronic joint inflammation, arthritis, as well as to help with fevers. It is the economic generic eqivalent to the prescription medication etogesic. The only significant problem I have seen with this product is occasional bloody diarrhea and vomiting seen in sensitive pets. It is important to have both blood work before use, and periodically if this product is used long term. I give this product an overall ranking of a 4 out of 5.||Currently under review|
