FDA webinar on advice to dog owners whose pets take NSAIDs
The Food and Drug Administration will host a webinar this week about non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, known as NSAIDs, that are specifically created to help pets with their aches and pains.
The FDA warns that they can cause side effects in dogs similar to those in humans, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fluid retention, kidney failure, liver failure, and ulcers.
The FDA will host the webinar "Advice to Dog Owners Whose Pets Take NSAIDs" on Wednesday at 11 a.m. PST. The FDA will discuss the broad overview of the science behind NSAIDs for pets, the potential side effects that are possible and what you should do as a pet owner if you suspect your pet is having a reaction to veterinary NSAIDs.
