    DefaultLabs & NSAIDs

    Hello all,

    I have always had healthy dogs so never thought anything about breed specific medications when treating dogs for injuries until our dog Rowdy (a black Lab) died from the medication Previcox.

    While visiting other Lab forums, it seems that many Lab owners are already aware of the potential dangers that exist regarding NSAIDs and Labs. I was completely unaware and apparently, so was the vet that prescribed the Previcox.

    If our story will help ANY Lab to avoid the outcome our Rowdy had it will be well worth the time invested to pass this link along.

    Tragedies like this can be avoided if people have a 'heads up' on these dangers. Thanks for your time.

    Mel

    Not aware of that particular drug but I do know that there are certain lines of Labs that can't tolerate Rimadyl. Regular blood/liver panels are highly recommended! I fortunately have been able to use it w/o issue when we've had agility,etc, injuries (short term use). -Anne

    Yes, Rimadyl is also one of the many NSAIDs out there that can and has caused death to many dogs, including Labs.

    My girl can't tolerate any Rimadyl, Carpofren, or Metacam.

    Does anyone know - if a dog is going to have problems on NAISD's, is that something that will show up pretty quickly or could it take a long time? My 4 year old female is on Rimadyl as needed for elbow dysplasia - she only takes it on an as needed basis when she's really inflamed. She gets tested every 6 months or so.
