Peach oblong pill with P 100 for a dog

My vet gave them to my 140 lb dog for pain in his joints. But it is a white elongated pill with a P on the left half and 100 on the right. He is supposed to take 1-1/2 every 12 hours as needed for pain. The vet has to check his liver every few months to be sure it isn’t causing any liver problems. ## I'm not sure but I think it may be carprofen (also known as Rimadyl). It is a NSAID commonly prescribed for veterinary use. ## It's actually prednisone. Hope this is what you are looking for. ## Hi Candice, Can you please verify how you came to the conclusion that it's prednisone?

Deramaxx and Veterinary Pain

Our English Bulldog needs a pain medication for very severe tooth and gum infections. He is 10 years old & he cannot have the anesthetic needed for surgery to remove his teeth. We are just trying to keep him comfortable and were wondering if this would help with his pain? If you have a better solution, we would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you!!! ## Deramaxx contains the active ingredient Deracoxib, it is an anti-inflammatory that is often used to treat pain in dogs, such as that associated with osteoarthritis, and some types of surgery.

Has the vet prescribed this for your pup? Wh...

round yellow pill imprint with C G on one side & R B on the other side

I found a small round yellow pill in my living room today with the imprint on one side of C G and the other side of R B. I have searched online and have called the pharmacist and have been unsuccessful in determining what type of drug this is. None of my family including my family next door that visits several times a day every day knows whose pill this is or what it is. Can you please help me determine what this pill is? Any help is greatly appreciated! :) ## HI, Sandy! There's a good reason your pharmacist didn't know what this one was, it's a veterinary medication. It's used to treat flea infestations and it's called Capstar. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am puzzled now because we have not purchased capstar for either of my cats. I was told earlier ...
