Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) include ibuprofen, diclofenac, naproxen and many others. NSAIDs are commonly available “over-the counter” for pain management. Unfortunately may NSAIDs, particularly those that are not used in veterinary medicine, are toxic to both dogs and cats. Symptoms can include gastrointestinal upset, gastrointestinal ulceration and bleeding, kidney failure, lethargy, coma and seizures.
