My onco vet says piroxicam is the only nsaid that has proven cancer fighting abilities…  meloxicam, etc probably just help with pain

I tried piroxicam but simon vomited on it for 1-2 days…, has anyone ever re tried peroxicam ?

I can only share my experience with my dog Bob.  He was diagnosed with a  VERY bad bladder tumor near his urethra.  The only suggestion the Vet could offer that could “possibly” give us a little more time was Piroxicam.  She also said  it has shown  to reduce tumors.

Bob was prescribed Sulfracate to help support his tummy, as Piroxicam can cause digestive distress. Even with that, he would still puke sometimes.  When he did, I stopped the Piroxicam for  maybe four or five days and then started back on  the Piroxicam.   Been doing this Piroxicam off and on now since July.  Yes, we are on borrowed time, but it’s borrowed  time I feel like the Piroxicam  has given us.

So ask about Sulfracate and also maybe about a lower dose of the Piroxicam.  

Good luck

When my Dobe Nitro did metronomic therapy, we used Piroxicam along with the Cytoxan. I don’t know that it was for “cancer fighting” abilities, but it was part of the protocol. It did help with his arthritis greatly, however.

Paula and Warrior Angel Nitro

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

Has anyone ever used a lower dose of piroxicam to build up ie titrate to prevent gi upset?  I will ask my vet about this.   Simon was given 10 mg of piroxicam for 2 days in August.  He vomited and i switched to metacam.  Piroxicam would be better if he tolerates it.  Ie cancer fighting ability.
