    Hi everyone, thank you so much for this thread, I live in Spain and there is no much information of users of this med in spanish.

    I have a 15-year-old golden retriever that has started to have mobility problems for about six months and a week ago Galliprant was prescribed.
    Just briefely will tell you that in 2013 he had a series of epileptic seizures, and he was prescribed phenobarbital, in 2014 he had the last epileptic attack, and six months ago we took him off this medication for good. I comment all this to tell you that, despite this, he has always been a healthy and happy dog ​​without any health problem and with exceptional analysis. The last ones have been 15 days ago before taking any medication for mobility problems.
    Since normal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Metacam cause vomiting and cortisone makes him extremely nervous, the vet prescribed Galliprant.
    After a few hours of taking it, the first day he had diarrhea, the veterinarian told me that this would be the case, that it was a normal side effect in the begining of the treatment, it has taken Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Today I called the vet to tell her how he was doing, she told me to give him until Thursday and to give him omeprazole before the galliprant. But just after calling her, my dog ​​has had blood in the stool.
    Never again, not one more pill, a dog that has not had diarrhea since he was a puppy. I am calling the vet back tomorrow to see what he can take for pain relieve but no Galliprant, that’s for sure.
    I am glad to know that this medication has worked for some of you, but to me this medicine is pure poison.
