rimadyl and antihistimine?

Postby my2cotons » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:20 pm

Does anyone know if I can give Pistol rimadyl and an antihistimine at the same time? He has been panting this evening and I feel like he needs something tonight for pain, but he has a rash on his belly. I think the rash is because I gave him a tramadol earlier. But he needs something for pain for bedtime - but also needs his antihistimine for the rash. Just don't know if its safe to give them together.

I would think there would be a problem, but I don't know for sure. Is there an e-vet office you could call and ask?

There is no cross-database I can find for counterindications of vet meds but Rimadyl is an NSAID which are not usually conflicting with the antihistimines. I ran drug.com's database against several common human NSAIDs I could find and no interactions came up. I couldn't find a vet drug interaction data base. :frown: I looks like it would be fine but it's totally a shot in the dark. If you don't have an e-vet close to call, let me know. I have one and can give them a call.

I would think so. i would give the Rimadyl with a full stomach and the antihistamine when you know he can have a nap
