Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) commonly used for the management of pain.
If ingested, diclofenac will commonly cause gastrointestinal signs such as vomiting and diarrhoea (which may be bloody), lethargy and inappetence. If an animal has been exposed to a large volume, there is a risk of kidney impairment.
Even a very small amount of diclofenac could be enough to cause complications and it is essential that treatment is provided to reduce the risk of complications.
If you suspect your pet has been exposed to diclofenac, call the Animal PoisonLine on 01202 509000 for advice. Veterinary professionals can call VPIS on 0207 305 5055
