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? I located an oval orange/peach-ish colored pill marked P100 with an NDC: 26637-253, that also came back as Carprofen. Pill Size: 19mm Packager: Putney, Inc. NIH.gov describes this medication as a...

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. The FDA lists the possible side effects for dogs as being similar to those in humans who taken anti-inflammatories, so they may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, and increased risk of bleeding. 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.

Please help identify tan round pill, four scored with B in one corner and 68 in another or if turned could be an 86, scored on one side only. tan with tiny white specles. Thanks so much ## The area this pill was found in is New Jersey. Again, it's a fairly large four scored pill with B in one corner and 68 in another. It is tan with very tiny white speckles.

Thank you. ## I'm sorry, but I can't find any listings for this in our U.S. prescription drug resources, I also don't see any other posts about it on our site.

What is the pill marked P100

These were prescribed for my Labrador after he was hit by a car a year ago. He has been on a regular diet of 150 mg of Rimadyl daily for pain. I'm out and the new order won't be here for 2 days. Can I give him these pain killers (marked with P100) until then? ## Yes, they are in fact canine pills. My girlfriend, her boyfriend and I got pulled over tonight and she got arrested for them because the *****s couldn't get it up on the computers. I came home and googled it and it came right up! I think they were just looking to charge her because they told her it was methamphetamine, however, he allowed me to take pictures of the bottle and the pill itself before I left the police station, and it is in fact the same pill spelled CARPROFEN. It is for dogs. I don't know if they p...

torb val syrup

do they loose their appetite when taking this medicine? or combined with ZydaClin? My dog has been drowsy and not active like she normally is ....she had her teeth clean and some pulled and has been taking the medicine for 5 days now ## Hello Pat, Sorry to hear your dog is having a bad time after having her teeth pulled. According to Diamondback Drugs and Pet Education the most frequently seen side effects from Torbutrol (torb val syrup) are sedation, loss of appetite and diarrhea; it also can cause a slower heart rate. If she continues to feel this way after you stop administering the medication you may want to consult a veterinarian as there may be other factors involved. I hope this information helps and your dog feels better soon.
