Information For Dog Owners
ONSIOR is the product your veterinarian has chosen to treat your dog’s arthritis pain. It belongs to a class of drugs called “Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory” or NSAIDs. These drugs must be used according to your veterinarian’s directions. Occasionally, NSAIDs can cause side effects. If your dog stops eating, is depressed, vomits or has diarrhea stop the drug immediately and contact your veterinarian. In most cases the side effects will disappear when the drug is stopped but in rare cases it may be serious. For this reason, it is important to consult with your veterinarian. If you notice any serious side effects or others not mentioned in this insert, please inform your veterinarian.
