Deramaxx Killed my Dog Post Surgery

By 

from USA

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

My rottie/lab mix was 5 yrs old & had been given Deramaxx post-op for TPLO surgery to repair a torn cruciate ligament sustained when she stepped into a gopher hole while running & playing with my son back in April 2009. A necropsy by the vet proved Deramaxx perforated her duodenum (where the stomach meets the intestine) causing her gastrointestinal contents to leak into her abdominal cavity. Google this med to see how many animals have been negatively affected/killed...not good especially for dogs who are "slow dietary metabolizers". My dog was a strong, healthy, vibrant dog who only had one ear infection in her life!

As with any medication use caution when useing Deramaxx

By 

from Erie, PA

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

I had a nine year old Irish Wolfhound mix who took Deramaxx for many ailments. She often had problems walking and first was prescribed Rymadyl but after one night when she snapped at one of the cats, which was totally uncharacteristic of her, we switched to Deramaxx. She did very well on the Deramaxx and walked much better when she was on it. However, like with any medication we watched her for side affects from the Deramaxx because it can cause digestive problems or liver and kidney issues. Thankfully she never had those problem because I was very careful not to give her too much Deramaxx.

Deramaxx helped my girl tremendously while she was on it and she was able to enjoy being able to go on walks again, which she loved. You must use caution when using this or any medication with your dog and watch for any side affects when they are on any medication. My Veterinarian always gives out sheets of paper with medications telling you what they are, how they work, and side affects. If you Vet doesn't do this then maybe you should suggest it next time your there or look up the prescribed medication online so you know all the side affects. If you think your dog might be having a bad reaction to any medication then you should call/take your dog to your Vet or Emergency Vet Clinic, better to be safe then sorry.

Unfortunately my dog was ultimately diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, bone cancer, in her front right leg. We didn't have the option to try and treat the cancer because of her previous problems with her hips so we decided to treat her pain as best as we could. Deramaxx was one of the main painkillers we used to help make her comfortable and I would like to think it helped her feel a little better all the way to the end.

Deramaxx Killed our Dog

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

 

 

APRIL 2009

 

 

We brought our dog Raven into the Vet a week ago with a torn ligiment. She had been playing in the back yard with my Boy and she twisted her leg.

The Vet recommended a Vet Surgeon to fix her leg by adding a stainless steel plate on here Femer to compensate for the torn Crucies Ligimant.  The surgery went well and my dog appeared to be recovering quickly over the next couple days.

On the third day shen was lathargic and violented vomiting and shaking with what appeared to be shock syndroms.  She was extra tursty and drank lots of water.  She appeared to be dehydrating.  I canlled the Vet and they asked me to give her more water and watch her.  She looked a bit better after an hour so we thought that it was just upset stomach from the pain medication.  The next day she turned worse after getting her morning medication which included Deramaxx for othopedic inflamation.  She was vomiting and swollen stomack and violently shakining with no ability to stand.

My wife , my Son and I picked Raven up and carried her into the car and drove to the vet .The Vet took an X Ray and withdrew a large syridge of fluid from her intestional cavity.  He did an analysis and told us that we would have to put the dog asleep as she had burst open internal organs and was septic with bacteriac flowing thru her entire body.

Raven was a three year old very healthy and smart half Black Lab and half Rottwieler.  She had never been sick a day in her life.

The Vet did an autopsy on her and found that the Deramaxx drug had burned a hole into her at the duardianal where it enters the stomach.  He told us that another dog had died of the same symtoms but that it was a very old and frail dog not youg and healthy like RAVEN.  My vet has contacted the Deramaxx Company ,[[url]http://www.deramaxx.com/home/default.asp?page=0_0[/url]

and sent his autopsy findings to independat Vets for confirmation

Please do NOT Let anyone give Deramaxx to your Dog!

Dangerous - Use Caution!

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

My golden retriever is 7 years old and has hip dysplasia and arthritis. Over the past couple months, he is becoming immobile and has a hard time getting up and walking. My vet prescribed Deramaxx and after the first dosage, he began vomiting and had diarrhea with blood. I'm thankful he showed these side effects - if not, I would have kept him on the medication and probably would have ended up losing him due to internal bleeding and kidney / liver failure. I have since done extensive research on this drug and other NSAIDs (Rimadyl, Metacam, etc) and there is not one of them that is safe. The FDA reported 50,000 adverse reactions / death on Rimadyl in 3 years. I have tried Glucosamine injections (Adequan), fish oil, warm water swimming - all which provide minimal and temporary relief. We will start acupuncture next - I'm crossing my fingers. He's too young to be suffering like this. Strong believer in natural remedies when possible.

my old dog is running again

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

my mutt is 11 year olds.  She is a shepherd chow mix, maybe some rottweiler in there too.

She has periodically taken for pain when she's tripped up.  Now she takes daily, 12.5 mg.  I buy the 100 mg and split it into 1/8ths because it is cheaper.

After 2 months i took her in for a second round of blood tests (before and after) which Is highly recommended and she passed with flying colors.  This is a great medication for her along with her joint supplements and fish oil and she is losing weight and running around like a younger dog again.

Deramaxx killed my dog

By 

from Peoria, AZ

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

I took my border collie mix to the vet for a limp. He put her on Deramaxx. Within days, she grew weak, got wobbly, wouldn't eat, couldn't stand. I took her back to the vet and he did blood work. The test showed kidney damage. The next day she developed irreparable internal bleeding and we had to put her down. THIS DRUG KILLS. Other then the limp, our dog had been perfectly healthy all her life. We started this drug and she was dead within days. DO NOT GIVE THIS DRUG TO YOUR DOG. It's not worth the risk or the heartache. If I could give this a zero-star rating, I would.

Deramaxx is a Godsend

By 

from Bradfordsville, KY

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

I have two Great Pyrenees dogs ... a female (110 lbs) who is now 11 years old and her son (120 lbs) who is 8 years old.  They have both been on Deramaxx for hip problems for 3 years and they could not function without it.  These are big, heavy, powerful dogs that roam considerable distances to protect a 900 acre ranch from predators while providing love and affection to the family.  As long as they get their 1 pill/day dose, they function like young dogs and play like puppies.  If they don't get it, they quite literally cannot get to their feet the next day.  It's a miracle drug.

DERAMAXX KILLED MY ROTTWEILER!!!

By 

from Waldwick, NJ

Comments about Deramaxx 100Mg Bottle (30 Ct.):

Deramaxx killed my dog.  I took my Rottie, Brutus, to our vet on Wed, Sept10th, 2008.  He was on Tramadol for hip pain and he was 15 years 8 months old.  After having blood work done, I was given Deramaxx for his hip pain, which was finally becoming difficult for him.   I gave him Tramadol and Deramaxx the next day - only giving him 1/2 tablet of Deramaxx with his food.  I did the same thing on Friday.  Friday night, he started vomiting.  The diarrhea started soon after lasting all through the night.  Mind you, this Rottweiler was the heathiest boy I'd ever seen - he was in a special Lucky 13 Longevity Study with Purdue University because he was so old.  On Saturday morning, September 13th, 2008, he was brought to a "different" vet than the one I brought him to on Wednesday, because no one from my first vet's office called me to let me know the extent of his blood work details, except for receiving a brief phone call on Thurs. night indicating - a change in his blood work.   What we didn't know was that his kidney readings were quite high, remember he was over 15, and he should NEVER HAVE BEEN GIVEN DERAMAXX!!!   On Saturday morning, we had to say good-bye to our beloved pet.  An autopsy was performed and the vet said he had a very recent (within a day) ulceration in his stomach.  I am so upset and beside myself I cannot even comprehend what to do next.  My poor boy suffered and died because of this harmful drug.   I have another Rottie that we had on prednisone for a long,long time as he has masticatory myocitis a degenerative muscle disease in his jaw.  We tried switching him to Deramaxx two years ago and his mouth "froze" in an open position and we thought for sure he was going to die.  I should never have given this terrible drug to my boys.   Luckily for the second one, he pulled through.  My other boy was just too old and the Deramaxx did its damage and took its toll all because of my efforts to better his quality of life!!!
