The animal is not spayed, is a female 5 yrs. old and in excellent health otherwise. She is not overly excitable or neurotic in any way. I am very hesitant to give her this medicine after learning what it does and what humans use it for.
Unable to even find/locate that drug in veterinarian medicine... is it spelled correctly? What does the whole package say, and is there a chance that the office made a mistake? My vets' office made a mistake on our cats and the girls upfront misprinted a label for one of them and the med was for the other, not by the vets fault... need to check back with vet, and if need be get a second opinion by phone... but before giving the dog any more of this medicine need to re-vfy exactly what it does, why that type and if it has something to do with the breed... what may work for one does not necessarily work for all dog breeds, jus like with humans... good luck to you... blaze22
Hi, well found the information and it is supposedly used for over active muscle spasms among other things that inhibit too the secretion of certain elements that may be playing a part in the infection, but you would need to just follow up with your vet and ask him or her if there is anything else that can be used other that the med that was prescribed if it is bothersome or worries you... blaze22
This is a barbiturate used to reduce muscle spasms in the digestive tract and the urinary tract. It also reduces fluid secretions from certain glands and organs. My hunch is the doctor thought this drug would make the dog more comfortable since it has a urinary tract infection. If you are nervous about this contact the vet and simply ask more about it. Hopefully he will be understanding and sway your conerns.
Good luck with the pup, they are our babies,
