As a follow up to the last blog, I posted a question for my colleagues concerning use of NSAIDs in dogs. I was interested in which drugs they prefer and if they have had any cases that developed gastric ulcers. Thirteen people responded and offered a variety of experiences. Several cases of gastric ulcers were described but not associated with one particular drug. Some NSAIDs not labeled for use in animals were administered by owners without the advice of their veterinarian to patients that subsequently developed ulcers. Some of the veterinarians even had gastric ulcers develop in their own dogs while administering appropriately labeled drugs.
