Here is the last installment of 6 Ways to Ease Arthritis Pain in Dogs

Part 6:  Anti-Inflammatories and Pain Relief

Drugs are available that can reduce inflammation and suppress pain in dogs with more advanced disease.  The main category is a group called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).  They are very effective, but not without potential side effects.  If used improperly or in the wrong patient, they can cause stomach ulceration or damage the kidneys.  Side effects can be minimized by monitoring your dog’s blood work regularly. Other forms of pain relief that may be beneficial include Tramadol, Gabapentin and Amantadine.   It’s super important not to give human drugs to our pets, as they can cause illness or even death.
