NSAIDs in veterinary practice: focus on Carprieve
Saturday, October 1, 2011
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used in veterinary practices for their analgesic properties. They are chosen for their ability to reduce inflammation and their antipyretic actions. The widespread use of NSAIDs has meant that the adverse effects of these drugs have become increasingly prevalent and controversial. Adverse effects of this group of medications may be serious if NSAIDs are used in patients improperly, also their benefits may be questioned for achieving optimum effects if client compliance is not correctly followed. This product focus will briefly discuss the most frequently used NSAIDs, their use in veterinary medicine with the focus concentrating on Carprieve (carprofen) and how compliance can be achieved more successfully, ultimately improving the actions of Carprieve (carprofen) and improving the benefits for the patient.
