Precautions

As a class, cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal and renal toxicity. Sensitivity to drug-associated adverse effects varies with the individual patient. Patients at greatest risk for renal toxicity are those that are dehydrated, on concomitant diuretic therapy, or those with renal, cardiovascular, and/or hepatic dysfunction. Since may NSAIDs possess the potential to induce gastrointestinal ulceration, concomitant use of Vetameg with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as other NSAIDs and corticosteroids, should be avoided or closely monitored.
