Our dog is about to start on gabapentin for leeg pain. Does anyone have any experience in this area. He is 16 yrs old and 35 lbs. I understand it is not approved for pet, but I am interested in any information. ## I do not know much about the drug in question. Many pain killers designed for humans takes a toll on an animals insides. Our dog (45 lbs) has been on a pain killer by the name of PIROXICAM for over 3 years without showing any side effects. Many vets. promote drugs and in return get lunches, free samples etc. from pharmacutical sales reps.. Please request information on PIROXICAM. I am not a vet. nor a salesman. Hope this helps. ## Yes, sorry, this site does not have any vet information here, so we cannot help you with that usage info. Many drugs that are useful in people also ... ...

Grind Pills
1 Reply RSS
is it ok to grind pills that have to be given to pets so that they can be mixed with their food? ## Yes, you can do that as long as they aren't time released pills and as long as your veterinarian or the pill labeling hasn't warned you not to do so. There are some pills that would carry such a warning, because they may do damage to the stomach or esophagus if they are crushed and the protective outer coating removed. Learn more prescription drug details here. Check the labeling and if you see something such as ER, XR, SR or something similar then it is time released and not safe to crush or grind up. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

If My Dog Is On Purbac Can I Give Him Petcam At he Same Time
2 Replies RSS
my dog is on Purbac for a skin infection, can i give him Petscam at the same time? ## @Phillip, I haven't come across any medications under the name "Petscam". The name is just so broad that my results are even bringing up pet owners who've previously been scammed. Lol! Would you happen to have the packaging in hand to help determine which ingredients are in Petscam? Also, Purbac (Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim) is a very powerful antibiotic that carries many side effects. So I would also recommend talking to your vet about this before making the final decision on whether or not you should combine it with another medication. I hope this helps! ## Thank you David,I took your advice and spoke to the vet who precribed the Purbac. He said to finish the course then I can sta... ...

cats and Flea Products
1 Reply RSS
Don't use Frontline or Advantage from everything I've read these two are Very TOXIC to your pets ## @jri, Thanks for the heads up on which flea products to avoid. It's a shame how many of these manufacturers get away with putting such toxic substances into products that go directly on the cat thinking it wont do any harm, with pet owners left in the dark about their safety. Seems the only way to know is to research each and every ingredient ourselves, because now these companies (and probably others as well) can't ever be trusted with their misleading marketing schemes. Do you happen to know the names of the specific chemical compounds they use, so we can be on the look out for any other products that contain these same ingredients? ...

Another Fortesta application site question
1 Reply RSS
Is the main concern with application site the issue of transfer to other surfaces/people/pets etc? I'm having to switch to Foresta from Androgel, and my preferred site for Androgel was the chest/abdomen area, which worked well (verified by blood levels). Fortesta seems to take longer to dry and is irritating my thigh a little, and if transfer is the only issue, I'd like to try it on the chest; I can manage the transfer issue. ## Hello, Brad! How are you? That risk is the only reason they list, but you should double check with your doctor, in case there may be some other issue at play. Learn more Fortesta details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
