  1. Cephalexin: This is an antibiotic to be given until complete, for a total of 1 week. Antibiotics can wipe out the normal bacterial present in the intestinal tract, causing GI upset. You can give your pet a tablespoon of plain white yogurt (or Activia) with each meal to help replace this.
  2. Carprofen: This is an anti-inflammatory medication for pain. Stop this medication if your pet is vomiting, or has blood in the stool. Call us immediately. Do not use other non-steroidal anti inflammatory medication along with the Rimadyl, such as Previcox, Metacam, aspirin or Deramaxx.
  3. Tramadol: This is a codeine-like medication to be used as needed for additional pain relief
  4. Synovial Flex: This is a joint supplement for life.
  5. Acepromazine: This is a sedative to be used as needed for light sedation. Use the lowest dose needed as sedation can be profound, especially in combination with Tramadol.
