I started piroxicam on Sat evenings meal.. I added 2 omeprazole and have added them a few days prior as well.. Within 1 hour.. Simon vomited a huge amount of food.. Next day I added piroxicam again.. Simon vomited some time in the nite early am..   My original plan was to add sulfulcrate,, but I was hoping this step could be avoided..  Wrote to onco vet.. He suggests to give  a 2 day rest and start again with the sufulcrate.. and change to a mon wed fri regimen.. If he vomits again, I will have to consider a plan b.. Simon has never been on an nsaid.. only galliprant..

I can only relate my experience.  Bob was on it maybe three or four days before he had a puke session.  I was not using the sulfulcrate.  

Stopped the Piroxicam  for two, maybe three days.  Started him on sufulcrate amd that seems to do the trick.  Now, that said, he did vomit ine rime since then.  Took him off the Piroxicam  for one day, kept doing the sulfulcrate anuway, and he was fine again.    So in Bob’s case, a respite inbetween  every now and then seemed to do the trick.it 

Hopefully  you’ll find the sulfulcrate  does the trick.  Paws crossed!

thanks for the reply.. Did you give the sufulcrate  every 8 hrs?  or just  an  hour or 2 before the piroxicam?

My directions were “twice a day” and rarely was that practical for me.  I interpreted  that to mean closer to twelve hrs, so check with your Vet.  If he says every eifht, then that’s based on Simon’s  needs.

My  reality, quite different.

Bob is scared of thunderstorms and won’t  eat if there is ANY hint of thunder anywhere!  We’ve  had them non stop off and in  for weeks!  So that would interfere  with me trying to give him his Piroxicam  at night sometimes because  I didn’t  want to do it without food.

For example, he might get a dose of Sul. what I thought would be  about one ot two  hrs ahead of a meal for his “morning” dose, and then an hour or two before his late supper dose with the Piroxicam.  He eats much better at night when it’s  cooled down some.  Of course, there would be a thunderstorm  right when it was time for his meal.  So MANY times it might be four or five  hours after a dose before he ate and got his Piroxicam, but he still did fine,  

Clear as mud, right?

Not sure I’m  making sense, but my main focus was getting the sul. in him a couple of hours before the Piroxicam  dose, even if it meant just once a day.  That’s when it seemed most important  to coat his stomach prepping for the Piroxicam. 

And the usual disclaimer…not a Vet and not giving  Vet advice. Talk with your Vet about specifics for Simon.

Julian is very sensitive to NSAIDS but needs meloxicam daily for his arthritis.  I tried the Prilosec first but had much better results with misoprostol. It blocks the negative side effects of NSAIDS on the GI tract in many patients.  I started with twice daily but now I just give it once daily at night and no vomit.

I learned about this drug after my first Pittie Kona developed a GI ulcer after taking Deramaxx for years.  After her ulcer healed I changed her NSAID and gave her misoprostol for life and she never had another problem.

Oh darn sorry to hear that Luke, I hope he’s feeling better.

Pam THANK YOU for the info about misoprostol, I didn’t know about it.

For others researching this medication to ease side effects in NSAIDs see:

Hi – FWIW, we had terrible luck with Piroxicam – so bad I opted never to use it again.  Here is my blog entry from that time if it is of any use or consolation – the details of what we were using in conjunction with it are in the blog: After the Piroxicam Storm

Lisa, Minneapolis

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.

That’s what we had to do for Jerry, Rimadyl was way too strong for him and thee Metacam worked well.
