EtoGesic™ (Etodolac) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used to treat arthritis in dogs. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful condition caused by “wear and tear” of cartilage and other parts of the joints that may result in the following changes or signs in your dog:
• Limping or lameness
• Decreased activity or exercise (reluctance to stand, climb stairs, jump
or run, or difficulty in performing these activities)
• Stiffness or decreased movement of joints.
Dosage: For Dogs/Puppies: (over 12 months of age) 11 lbs and over: Usual dose is 4.5-6.8mg per pound of pet’s body weight once daily or as directed by veterinarian. The effective dose and duration should be based on clinical judgment of disease condition and patient tolerance of drug treatment. The initial dose level should be adjusted until a satisfactory clinical response is obtained, but should not exceed 15 mg/kg once daily. When a satisfactory clinical response is obtained, the daily dose level should be reduced to the minimum effective dose for longer term administration.
Warning: Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children. Consult a physician in cases of accidental ingestion by humans. Do not use in cats. For use in dogs only. Treatment with EtoGesic tablets should be terminated if signs such as inappetence, emesis, fecal abnormalities, or anemia are observed. Dogs treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including etodolac, should be evaluated periodically to ensure that the drug is still necessary and well tolerated.
