    DefaultDeramaxx - Death of a friends dog :(

    I ran in to a friend today who just lost her 6 year Lab, Cobey. In Feb., she tore her ACL and prior to surgery was put on Deramaxx (anti-inflammatory). She had a reaction (vomiting, etc), so they reduced her dose and she did better. Immediately following her surgery, they put her on it, and within a week, she passed. They did an ultra sound on her and realized that the Deramaxx ate a hole in her intestine, and there was lots of blood in her belly.

    I started bawling right there in the bank. :'( Be careful with these, and if there's signs of illness, stop giving it immediately.

    Happy news is they have a new 12 week baby, named Duffy.

    awwwwww; so very sad. Those anti-inflamatories do that with humans, too. My older lady friend was taking something for her osteoarthritis and ended up in the hospital with a bleeding ulcer. Unfortunately, the doggies can't tell us when it starts to hurt!

    Oh my gosh. Your poor friend. I feel so horrible for her. I'm sure she feels so much guilt about something she could never have known. :'(

    Duly noted. Will avoid like the plague.

    I don't like Deramaxx. I've refused it several times already.

    This is terribly sad.
    Cinder took it after both her cruciate surgery's and we had no ill effects though I was well aware of them. We had to use it because she did NOT tollerate Rimadyl.
