Do not start giving ProZinc to your cat until you are properly trained to do so by your veterinarian. ProZinc injections are given subcutaneously (under the skin). Give ProZinc injections with a U-40 syringe(sold separately) or dosing will be inaccurate. It is best to give each injection of ProZinc at feeding time or just afterward.

    Description

    Solve your dogs flea problems and prevent future flea infestations with Comfortis chewable tablets!

    What is Comfortis? Comfortis is a beef-flavored chewable tablet that is given once a month. It works to kill fleas and to prevent and treat flea infestations in dogs.

    Formulated for: Dogs and puppies over 14 weeks of age can receive Comfortis.

    How is this medication given? Comfortis is an oral medication. Since it is flavored and chewable, most dogs take it easily.

    Give this medication with food if possible. You should give another full dose of Comfortis if vomiting happens to occur within one hour of administration.

    Giving Comfortis one month before active flea season starts will help to achieve optimal results. Once fleas become active, it is advised to continue this medication monthly until flea season ends. In regions where fleas are active year-round, this medication may be required monthly every month of the year to ensure adequate flea control.

    Comfortis is available in multiple sizes and your dogs dose will be determined by his/her body weight. If your dog exceeds 120 lbs, you will need to give a combination of the appropriate sizes of medication in order to achieve the best results.

    This medication can be prescribed for your dog by your veterinarian. You should give Comfortis only to the pet that it is prescribed for.

    How does this medication work? Spinosad is the active ingredient in Comfortis. It works to excite the fleas nervous system which causes paralysis. This results in the death of fleas.

    What results can I expect? Once Comfortis is administered, fleas should start to die within 30 minutes. Each dose remains effective for one month (30 days).

    If Comfortis is given to your dog and he/she is infested with fleas, it is possible for fleas to linger beyond 30 days. This is because immature fleas in the environment still have the opportunity to hatch.

    Comfortis is one key part of a good flea prevention program. Speak with your veterinarian about other precautions you can take to rid your dog of fleas and to prevent future infestations.

    What Form(s) does Comfortis come in? This medication is available as a chewable tablet with beef flavoring. Different strengths are available ranging from 140 mg (5-10 lbs) to 1620 mg (60.1-120 lbs). The dose of medication your dog requires is based on his/her body weight.

    Common Brand Name: Comfortis (Lilly)

    Dose and Administration: Comfortis is generally given once a month but always follow your veterinarians directions. It is recommended to give Comfortis chewable tablets with food.

    Comfortis chewable tablets may be chewed, offered in food, or administered directly in the mouth like other medications.

    If your pet vomits his/her medication within 1 hour of administration, you can repeat the dose.

    Ideally, it is recommended to start giving Comfortis one month before fleas become active. After that, this medication should be given monthly through the end of the flea season.

    If fleas are common in your area year-round, continue Comfortis monthly all 12 months of the year.

    If there are fleas in the home, all pets should be treated with appropriate flea medication. Fleas need to be on your dog for this medication to kill them. Talk to your vet about other strategies you can use to eliminate flea infestations from your home.

    Only give this medication to the pet that your veterinarian prescribes it for. If you are unsure of how to use this medication correctly, contact your veterinarian.

    Uses: Comfortis is used to kill fleas and to prevent flea infestations in dogs for a full month.

In general, Lactated Ringers can be administered as follows:
    1. Remove the fluid bag and fluid drip set from their protective packaging.
    2. Close the line lock in the middle of the fluid tubing by moving the roller so that it squeezes the tubing. The lock on a new fluid set is usually set to the open position.

    4. Pull off the covering from the exit port on the bottom end of the fluid bag and push the pointed end of the fluid set into the open hole of the fluid bag. Make sure it is seated firmly or it can leak.
    5. Squeeze and release the bulb at the top of the drip set until the bulb chamber is about half full with fluid.
    6. Open the line lock and/or roller on the tubing and then hold or suspend the fluid bag. Fill the fluid line with fluid from the bag until it runs the entire length of the tubing. Be sure that all large air bubbles run out of the tubing.
    7. After the fluid line has been primed, close the lock and move the roller down.
    8. Twist the needle on to the end of the fluid line as clean as possible. Do not contaminate the open end.
    9. Insert the needle and deliver fluid as directed by your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can answer any questions you may have regarding the use of Lactated Ringers. This medication should only be given to the pet for which it was prescribed. Needles and drip sets are also available only when prescribed by a veterinarian.

    Description

    What is Previcox? Previcox is a coxib class non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication that your veterinarian may prescribe in order to provide relief from pain and inflammation associated with many types of joint abnormalities including arthritis in dogs.

    What are the benefits of Previcox?

    • Helps provide relief from arthritis in dogs while maintaining normal body function.
    • Previcox can decrease pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.
    • Rapid results are often observed.
    • Flavored tablets are chewable helping to make it easier to give to your pet.
    • Formulated for: dogs who weigh more than 12.5 lbs.

    How is this medication given? by mouth (orally). Give with food can reduce chance of stomach/intestinal side effects but giving without food is also acceptable. This medication is labeled for once a day use but you should always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Contact your veterinarian if it becomes difficult to administer to your dog. Only give this drug to the pet for which it was prescribed. If your dog is to be given Previcox long-term, try to give the minimum dose necessary in order to relieve symptoms.

    How does it work? Previcox is a COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) inhibiting non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication. COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) enzymes generate chemicals that are responsible for pain and inflammation in the joints and other places in the body. Previcox also works to spare the COX-1 (cyclooxygenase-1) enzyme which helps to maintain normal body function.

    What results can I expect? Previcox helps relieve the symptoms associated with arthritis and other joint abnormalities. Since there is no cure for arthritis, Previcox can help reduce the inflammation that causes musculoskeletal (bone, muscle, and joint) pain in your dog which may help improve your dog's mobility. Post-surgical pain can also be minimized. Responses vary from dog to dog but most dogs will show evidence of improvement within days. If Previcox is discontinued or administered incorrectly, your dogs pain and inflammation may return.

    What Form(s) does Previcox come in? Tablets that are chewable with scoring splitting.

    Dose and Administration: Previcox is a chewable, scored tablet given orally (by mouth). Tablets are scored so they can be split if necessary. Based on your pet's weight, your veterinarian will calculate the correct dosage and advise you about how to administer it. It is recommended to give this medication once daily but follow your veterinarian's recommendations precisely. Previcox can be given with or without food but giving with food can help decrease the risk of gastrointestinal upset (vomiting/diarrhea). Most dogs will take PREVICOX from your hand, but you can also place the tablet directly into your dog's mouth. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.

    Possible Side Effects: Serious side effects associated with Previcox in dogs can occur with or without warning, and, in rare situations, can result in death. The most common side effects associated with this medication involve the digestive tract (vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased food consumption). Liver and kidney problems have also been reported with the use of NSAIDs. Symptoms that may indicate problems with Previcox include a decrease or increase in appetite, vomiting, change in bowel movements (such as decreased or increased activity level, lack of coordination, seizure, or aggression), yellowing of gums, skin, or whites of the eyes (jaundice), change in drinking habits (frequency or amount consumed), change in urination habits (frequency, color, or smell), and weight loss. If allergic reactions occur, contact veterinarian.
