Re: New member - More on Banamine
Eleanor Kellon, VMD
You are already getting excellent advice. I just want to emphasize the problem with Banamine.
Her gas and diarrhea are red flag signs of likely toxicity. In severe cases they can lose large amounts of their blood proteins into the bowel which means there is also the potential for bacterial toxins to enter the blood along with other compounds (vasoactive amines) which can make managing the laminitis more difficult.
Please show your veterinarian this study about what happens if you double dose Banamine:
and this one that shows double dosing it does NOT make it more effective.
