Reviews on but shpu for dogs
My pug had vomiting of unknown origin, but clearly not from food. And on examination, the veterinarian also found a pain syndrome in the abdomen. We have been prescribed a no-silo. Either prick 0.5 ml intramuscularly once a day, or give three quarters of a 40 mg tablet. We did not prick, they say that the medicine acts stronger. I have been giving pills for a week now and see that my dog began to feel much better.
Review number 2
My dog suddenly started vomiting. The day was not fed, but then immediately after eating vomiting lasted the whole night. In this case, the dog was not sluggish. And the chair was as usual. The vet said the symptoms are similar to cholecystitis. Immediately made a few shots in the muscle, including the no-silo.
We bring home, and our baby becomes sluggish and the hind legs pulls, as if they are paralyzed. I was so scared, I called the clinic, and the doctor said it was from no-shpa. It’s just that the injection itself is painful and for a while it will hurt the dog to stand on its hind legs. In the further treatment, we switched to pills and everything was fine. Neither vomiting nor paralysis.
