Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?Is Sparkle currently on any NSAID like Rimadyl, Deramaxx, Meloxicam?
Thank you for the additional information. I was not signed on when you replied.It would be worthwhile to do two things here:1) Get her started on canine safe NSAIDs2) Increase her dosage of tramadol if she is uncomfortable. She's on a very low dose right now for a dog her size.Banamine is very rarely used on dogs and when it is it's off label. Alas, it's not a medication that can be given long-term. It's typically used as a single injection that lasts 24 hours. After the single injection, it's usage is discontinued.
