Etodolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is the generic of EtoGesic and Lodine. It decreases inflammation and pain, specifically in dogs with osteoarthritis. It can also be used for other pain and inflammation, as a veterinarian sees fit.
Dogs with gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, or hematological abnormalities should not take etodolac. They should also be used with caution in dogs that are dehydrated, dogs that have kidney disease, and dogs that are on diuretics as they can increase the risk for kidney damage while taking etodolac.
Etodolac has common side effects including vomiting, loose stools, lethargy, decreased appetite, and low protein levels. However if your dog has severe diarrhea, vomiting, depression, or bloody stools, you should consult your dog's veterinarian immediately. Fresh water should be available to your dog at all times. It is also important for you to consult your pet's veterinarian or VetRxDirect Pharmacist before adding any other medications or supplements to your dogs regimen, as they can interact.
Etodolac is sold as an FDA approved generic drug. Brand varies from order to order and variation to variation. VetRxDirect is unable to guarantee which brand will be available at the time of order shipment.
