Used commonly to relieve pain and reduce fever in humans, this is a cyclooxygenase-3 (COX) inhibitor.  Both dogs and cats have different liver functions that do not allow them to process this the same way and so it becomes a moderate to severe poison for them.  If an animal gets into this, they should be taken to the vet immediately for a variety of treatments, including an antidote.  Symptoms may include:

  • Dry Eyes
  • Weakness
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Black, Tarry Stool
  • Jaundice
  • Liver Failure
  • Red Blood Cell Injury
