- Supplements and natural remedies are an exciting new/old approach to medicine.
- Consumers must be savvy to avoid products which are ineffective or possibly even harmful to pets
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective at managing pain from arthritis and other causes
- They can also have serious side effects, and most over-the-counter versions are unsafe for pets
- Nutritional supplements, sometimes called nutraceuticals, can play a key role in the management of chronic pain and inflammation
- But buyer beware: supplements are not subject to approval by the FDA. What does this mean to you, the consumer?
- You might be able to fool your cat once, but when it comes to anything unpleasant, cats have the memory of an elephant. Not to mention sharp teeth
- There is a better way, although it costs a bit more. Many drugs can be compounded into a liquid formulation, capsules, or even as a gel that is absorbed through the skin.
