Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not improve rapidly.

  • Administer all medications as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • If treatment is attempted, the prostate size should be periodically re-evaluated by your veterinarian. Urine should be checked for any secondary infection with cultures and sensitivities.

  • Animals on piroxicam are prone to developing gastrointestinal problems (vomiting and or diarrhea). Notify your veterinarian if this occurs. Some veterinarians will use the gastrointestinal protectant, misoprostol (Cytotec®), to decrease the likelihood of these effects.
