My 11 year dog has been on Rimadyl for pain, but I think he may have the beginnings of an ulcer. He stopped eating and I took him off his meds and put him on a bland diet. Does Promaxol affect his stomach in the same way as NSAIDS? He also has a bad knee and I also ice it which gives him relief along with cortisone shots from the vet. We also bought an Ortho dog brace which helps. More concerned about pain management.

Dear Cindi,

PROMAXOL does not harm the stomach as other NSAIDS can. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to support the body. It would be especially helpful since he has been on Rimadyl for a while.

Best regards,
