Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. IF YOU GET REQUEST FOR A PHONE CALL, IT IS FROM THE WEBSITE AND NOT MYSELF. JUST IGNORE IT. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately. If you have not responded back in 10 minutes, it may be a longer before I can get back to you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

Are you sure it doesn't say ECASA?

I don't think so. It's a liquid. Also takes tramadol and Panta* (?)
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. John, Texas Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Thanks. I have never heard of ECCA and cannot find anything about it online. The only thing that comes close is ECASA, which is enteric coated aspirin. I will opt out to allow other vets to see this. Hopefully one of them will have better insight for you.
