Rimadyl® Is Not The Only Problem

Pet owners who have had Rimdayl® prescribed for their arthritic dog has heard the stories. Rimadyl® can cause internal bleeding, liver failure, bloody diarrhea, and more. And, there is no denying that these severe side effects may occur in your pet. But there are other NSAID’s that are prescribed that can cause the same problems.
Now, we have Dermaxx®, Metacamm® Zubrin® and more. They all offer up the same kinds of side effects yet they are among the most prescribed medications for dogs issued by veterinarians.
The objective is to get your pet out of pain. And to do that, the vet relies on these medications to get the job done. But given the dangerous side effects, I have to question why vets want to continue using them. There is an option.
A pharmaceutical-quality liquid Glucosamine product like Syn-flex® can get your pet’s arthritis pain under control fast. And, there is no risk of side effects whatsoever. So, what do we have to do to get the vets to recognize this simple alternative?
I think that far too many vets are “old school” in their thinking. That is, if an NSAID like Rimadyl or a similar drug is available, why not use it? I offer to them that they need to learn more about the Syn-flex® option.
Educate your Vet
Syn-flex® is less expensive; and, it has no side effects. Tell your veterinarian about it. And, make your point by taking along some “testimonials.” Those can be found at the following link on the company’s website:
Over the years I have run into this situation time and again. Pets that suffer from hip dysplasia and other joint-related problems and all the vet can think to do is prescribe an NSAID. You can help guide your vet to a safer alternative and help your pet in the process.
