Etodolac

Controls Pain & Inflammation

Etodolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in dogs for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, fever and post-surgery. Etodolac prevents the formation of prostaglandins, a group of body chemicals, thereby relieving pain and inflammation.

Dosage and Administration:

The recommended dose of Etodolac Tablets is 4.5 to 6.8 mg/lb body weight (10 to 15 mg/kg) administered once daily. Due to capsule sizes and scoring, dogs weighing less than 11 lb (5 kg) cannot be accurately dosed. 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.

Warnings:

Do not use in cats. For use in dogs only.

Precautions:

The safe use of Etodolac Tablets in dogs less than 12 months of age, pregnant, breeding or lactating dogs has not been established. Owners should be advised to observe for signs of potential drug reactions. If additional pain medication is warranted after administration of the daily dose of Etodolac, alternative analgesia should be considered. The use of another NSAID is not recommended.

As a class, cyclooxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, renal, and hepatic toxicity. Sensitivity to drug-associated adverse effects varies with the individual patient. Dogs that have experienced adverse reactions from one NSAID may experience adverse reactions from other NSAIDs. Dogs at greatest risk for adverse events are those that are dehydrated, on concomitant diuretic therapy, or those with renal, cardiovascular, and/or hepatic dysfunction. Concurrent administration of potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be carefully approached and monitored. NSAIDs may inhibit the prostaglandins that maintain normal homeostatic function. Such anti-prostaglandin effects may result in clinically significant disease in patients with underlying or pre-existing disease that has not been previously diagnosed. Since NSAIDs possess the potential to induce gastrointestinal ulceration and/or gastrointestinal perforation, concomitant use of Etodolac with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as other NSAIDs or corticosteroids, should be avoided.

The use of concomitantly protein-bound drugs with Etodolac has not been studied in dogs. Commonly used protein-bound drugs include cardiac, anticonvulsant and behavioral medications. The influence of concomitant drugs that may inhibit metabolism of Etodolac has not been evaluated. Drug compatibility should be monitored in patients requiring adjunctive therapy. Consider appropriate washout times when switching from one NSAID to another or when switching from corticosteroid use to NSAID use.

Treatment with Etodolac Tablets should be terminated if signs such as inappetence, emesis, fecal abnormalities, or anemia are observed. Dogs treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on a continuing basis, including etodolac, should be evaluated periodically to ensure that the drug is still necessary and well tolerated.

Etodolac Tablets, as with other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, may exacerbate clinical signs in dogs with pre-existing or occult gastrointestinal, hepatic or cardiovascular abnormalities, blood dyscrasias, or bleeding disorders.

Adverse Reactions:
As with other drugs in the NSAID class, adverse responses to Etodolac Tablets may occur.

Gastrointestinal: Vomiting, diarrhea, inappetence, gastroenteritis, gastrointestinal bleeding, melena, gastrointestinal ulceration, hypoproteinemia, elevated pancreatic enzymes.

Hepatic: Abnormal liver function test(s), elevated hepatic enzymes, icterus, acute hepatitis.

Hematological: Anemia, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, prolonged bleeding time.

Neurological/Behavioral/Special Senses: Ataxia, paresis, aggression, sedation, hyperactivity, disorientation, hyperesthesia, seizures, vestibular signs, keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

Dermatological/Immunological: Pruritus, dermatitis, edema, alopecia, urticaria.

Cardiovascular/Respiratory: Tachycardia, dyspnea.

Store at controlled room temperature, 15-30°C (59-86°F).
