Vet Balance.... Answered by Krystina Maxedon 1 year ago.

I went through this several years ago with my older lab husky cross. Out vet recommended Glucosamine Chondroitin over the counter, for human use. There are pet versions of it available, but they are much more expensive and work in the same way. Keeping your dogs weight down is important, my dog loved to swim, so we made sure she went to the beach a few times a week. There are actually classes in swimming offered through many dog day cares and kennels now, just check with some of your local vets. When our dog was achy, she would love to see the GC bottle come out of the cabinet, she knew that it helped her. It is much more gentle on the liver and kidneys than a lot of the pain meds. When our dog would get achy in the cold during the winter, we would warm up some of those herbal wraps in the microwave, the ones that are made for headaches and backaches, just warm to the touch and she would love to lie down with them on her joints. You can get the same effect by filling a tube sock with rice, and warming that in the microwave. You can sew it closed or knot it if you leave enough material. Best of luck with your lab, they are fantastic dogs. Answered by Oliva Delosh 1 year ago.

You are allowed to give your dog buffered asprin, just consult a vet on dosage. Also Glucosamine and Condrotin supplaments help, as well as slimming her down. Labs tend to be overweight and it works against them. You should be able to feel the ribs without appling pressure, feel the hip bones, have a nice tucked tummy, and feel the vertebrae down the back. This will greatly help with dysplasia. Also consider a strength/conditioning program of low impact exercise. This will help strengthen the muscles around the hips and help keep things in place. Depending on where you live there are places that offer underwater treadmills, chiropractic service, and acupuncture to help releave pain. Answered by Danika Calmes 1 year ago.

Over the counter medications are not always effective. You should go see a vet to discuss options. Although vet prescribed pain medication can have side effects, that only occurs when the medication is not being administered properly. The vet will prescribe the lowest effective dose possible to minimize the effects. In addition, annual blood tests are done to confirm that liver and kidney functions are normal. Occasionally, glucosamine and chondroitin are given in conjunction with the pain meds, but will not stop the pain when given on its own. Answered by Drew Gillilan 1 year ago.

Glucosomine. We have used it on all our dogs who have had arthritis and bad joints. Wrap it in some cheese and your dog will willingly take it. You can even take it if something starts to hurt :) Answered by Jayna Cowman 1 year ago.

Do not know about over the counter, but get her started on a daily maintenance of glucosomen - I know that is spelled incorrectly, but hopefully you know what I mean. It does wonders for my golden. Good Luck. Answered by Joana Prado 1 year ago.

You should drop some weight off her for starters. Get your vet to prescribe something and get the prescription filled at your local drugstore, The dispensing fee is cheaper at your drugstore, and the drugs themselves are usually far cheaper. Answered by Efrain Sura 1 year ago.

Cosequin is a good pain reliever. The best one I know of though through a vet is Rimadyl. Why wouldn't you want te best for him?! Answered by Jacquetta Camera 1 year ago.

What is the strongest OTC med I can get in the US?
800 mg motrin doesnt touch pain cant afford a Dr, which is why I need OTC options. Asked by Alvera Elks 1 year ago.

Orudis is a prescription drug in The US although it used to be OTC. Never the less ketoprofen is not nearly as strong as oxycodone, the opioid in Percocet. Also several strengths of Percocet exist so "half a pill" can be 5 mg, 3.75 mg, 2.5 mg, or 1.25 mg. You don't really develop a tolerance to Motrin (ibuprofen) although a dose of up to 800 mg can be safely used. 800 mg ibuprofen tablets are available by prescription but four 200 mg ibuprofen has the same result. Basically you have Tylenol (acetaminophen) or a NSAID like Aleve (naproxen), Aspirin, and ibuprofen. Tylenol max 1,000 mg can be taken with ONE NSAID drug. If you are in significant pain and OTC meds are not strong enough you need to see a doctor. Answered by Diedra Ulisch 1 year ago.

You wont find anything that comes close to Perc's strength. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, Motrin, Aleve and Orudis KT would help though. Answered by Lanny Buschner 1 year ago.

What sort of Allergies you have ? how can you expect someone to answer your question correctly, if you do not give specific details about what you are ailing from.Just naming the ailment or disorder is not enough most of the times its just the tip of the iceberg and there are deeper things which matter more then trying to judge it by a meaningless name.So please be specific and detailed if you want an accurate answer.

I used to buy a couple different pain relievers with ketoprofen in them. They were fabulous. One was called Orudis and then there were a couple others with the letters "KT" after their name. They were sold right in the tylenol and ibuprofen aisles. When googling, I can only find them on-line and I don't want to have to wait for a shipment. I've looked in a couple local drugstores - all chains - but I can't find it. Anyone have any useful information? Answered by Micaela Livshits 1 year ago.

This is what I found out about the drug. History --Wyeth Pharmaceuticals * In August, 2005, following the FDA's decision to order changes to warnings on NSAID packaging, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals informed the FDA that it would discontinue manufacturing Orudis KT. In 2006, the FDA issued a statement that Orudis KT was "not withdrawn from sale for reasons of safety or effectiveness." Wyeth has not spoken openly about its decision to withdraw Orudis KT from the market. Answered by Judith Vilaro 1 year ago.

They do still make ketoprofen capsules, I carry them at my pharmacy. Only your doctor can prescribe them for you, though. Answered by Yoko Erichson 1 year ago.

Which one of the following four drugs is most potent as a pain reliever?
Orudis KT-12.5 mg Aleve-220 mg Advil-200 mg Aspirin-325 mg Asked by Sina Guerry 1 year ago.

They are all basically the same thing, so its based upon you. I personally think Aleve works better, but if you were to ask my fiancee he would say the asprin, so I think its a matter of opinion and your body. Answered by Cami Fridley 1 year ago.

Among those and all the other NSAID's, there's wide variation from one person to another on which class of drug works best, but overall in a population study none is stronger than another. Note that Advil is ibuprofen and Orudis is ketoprofen, both in the same chemical group, so if one works (or doesn't work) well for you, you can expect about the same from the other. The differences in response are probably not truly individual, and one day we may find some biochemical marker that identifies which group is better for which people, but as of now and the foreseeable future, we just have to rely on trial and error. Answered by German Solages 1 year ago.

In addition to John's answer, remember that aspirin generally doesn't come without other ingredients, the most noted being caffeine. Caffeine is a vasodilator, which will increase blood flow, and thereby, oxygen flow to the area of injury, or pain, as well as other naturally occurring bodily pain suppressants. Suffice to say, all NSAID's alleviate pain to some degree, but everyone is different and different pain killers will work differently. Answered by Neida Westbrook 1 year ago.

Occasionally, glucosamine and chondroitin are given in conjunction with the pain meds, but will not stop the pain when given on its own. Answered by Grady Vasher 1 year ago.

Glucosomine. We have used it on all our dogs who have had arthritis and bad joints. Wrap it in some cheese and your dog will willingly take it. You can even take it if something starts to hurt :) Answered by Tanesha Bunn 1 year ago.

Do not know about over the counter, but get her started on a daily maintenance of glucosomen - I know that is spelled incorrectly, but hopefully you know what I mean. It does wonders for my golden. Good Luck. Answered by Mandie Conforme 1 year ago.

You should drop some weight off her for starters. Get your vet to prescribe something and get the prescription filled at your local drugstore, The dispensing fee is cheaper at your drugstore, and the drugs themselves are usually far cheaper. Answered by Sanford Zien 1 year ago.

Cosequin is a good pain reliever. The best one I know of though through a vet is Rimadyl. Why wouldn't you want te best for him?! Answered by Tayna Belman 1 year ago.

glucosimine, chondroiten, msm is wonderful - available at WM or any drug store. & it does treat the pain too it is for people rimadyl does not need to be given long term to cause kidney failure Answered by Jason Akright 1 year ago.


What is the strongest OTC med I can get in the US?
800 mg motrin doesnt touch pain cant afford a Dr, which is why I need OTC options. Asked by Laureen Parda 1 year ago.

Orudis is a prescription drug in The US although it used to be OTC. Never the less ketoprofen is not nearly as strong as oxycodone, the opioid in Percocet. Also several strengths of Percocet exist so "half a pill" can be 5 mg, 3.75 mg, 2.5 mg, or 1.25 mg. You don't really develop a tolerance to Motrin (ibuprofen) although a dose of up to 800 mg can be safely used. 800 mg ibuprofen tablets are available by prescription but four 200 mg ibuprofen has the same result. Basically you have Tylenol (acetaminophen) or a NSAID like Aleve (naproxen), Aspirin, and ibuprofen. Tylenol max 1,000 mg can be taken with ONE NSAID drug. If you are in significant pain and OTC meds are not strong enough you need to see a doctor. Answered by Krystin Mcneely 1 year ago.

You wont find anything that comes close to Perc's strength. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, Motrin, Aleve and Orudis KT would help though. Answered by Daphne Schlosberg 1 year ago.

What sort of Allergies you have ? how can you expect someone to answer your question correctly, if you do not give specific details about what you are ailing from.Just naming the ailment or disorder is not enough most of the times its just the tip of the iceberg and there are deeper things which matter more then trying to judge it by a meaningless name.So please be specific and detailed if you want an accurate answer. I am a Homeopath, What homeopathic Remedies did you take and in what potency ? And please explain your feelings in your own words and please put down whatever you feel exactly as you feel it.

Has anyone seen a med with ketoprofen lately?
I used to buy a couple different pain relievers with ketoprofen in them. They were fabulous. One was called Orudis and then there were a couple others with the letters "KT" after their name.

I used to buy a couple different pain relievers with ketoprofen in them. They were fabulous. One was called Orudis and then there were a couple others with the letters "KT" after their name. They were sold right in the tylenol and ibuprofen aisles. When googling, I can only find them on-line and I don't want to have to wait for a shipment. I've looked in a couple local drugstores - all chains - but I can't find it. Anyone have any useful information? Answered by Deandra Landwehr 1 year ago.

This is what I found out about the drug. History --Wyeth Pharmaceuticals * In August, 2005, following the FDA's decision to order changes to warnings on NSAID packaging, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals informed the FDA that it would discontinue manufacturing Orudis KT. In 2006, the FDA issued a statement that Orudis KT was "not withdrawn from sale for reasons of safety or effectiveness." Wyeth has not spoken openly about its decision to withdraw Orudis KT from the market. Answered by Jody Hollinger 1 year ago.

They do still make ketoprofen capsules, I carry them at my pharmacy. Only your doctor can prescribe them for you, though. Answered by Vannessa Sklenar 1 year ago.

I believe it isn't available anymore. I think it was due to causing stomach issues (possible). Answered by Kathern Madson 1 year ago.


Which one of the following four drugs is most potent as a pain reliever?
Orudis KT-12.5 mg Aleve-220 mg Advil-200 mg Aspirin-325 mg Asked by Rose Yen 1 year ago.

They are all basically the same thing, so its based upon you. I personally think Aleve works better, but if you were to ask my fiancee he would say the asprin, so I think its a matter of opinion and your body. Answered by Harrison Yupe 1 year ago.

Among those and all the other NSAID's, there's wide variation from one person to another on which class of drug works best, but overall in a population study none is stronger than another. Note that Advil is ibuprofen and Orudis is ketoprofen, both in the same chemical group, so if one works (or doesn't work) well for you, you can expect about the same from the other. The differences in response are probably not truly individual, and one day we may find some biochemical marker that identifies which group is better for which people, but as of now and the foreseeable future, we just have to rely on trial and error. Answered by Rufina Dahme 1 year ago.

In addition to John's answer, remember that aspirin generally doesn't come without other ingredients, the most noted being caffeine. Caffeine is a vasodilator, which will increase blood flow, and thereby, oxygen flow to the area of injury, or pain, as well as other naturally occurring bodily pain suppressants. Suffice to say, all NSAID's alleviate pain to some degree, but everyone is different and different pain killers will work differently. Answered by Drucilla Wissmann 1 year ago.

K guys it's orudis kt....only because it takes the least amt to work...straight out of my book Answered by Margurite Devey 1 year ago.
