Carprieve 50mg and Lintbells Yumove

Hi,

Our older lab cross has been taking 50mg Carprieve/Carprox, twice a day, for a couple of weeks for aches, pains and inflammation of joints after our Vet's diagnosis of arthritis/stiff joints causing him pain and discomfort.

I would like to try our dog on Lintbells YuMOVE as a natural alternative to the Carprieve.

His last Carpieve tablet will be given 8:30pm tonight. The new YuMOVE supplements are due to arrive tomorrow.


Q - Will it be safe to put him straight onto the YuMOVE tomorrow when they arrive - or will he need some time for the Caprieve to leave his system, before giving him a dosage of YuMOVE?

Advice would be most appreciated

Many thanks.

I am not in a position to advise on specific cases.
As far as I am aware there is no record of any interaction between Carprofen and Green Lipped muscle extract. It is therefore seemingly ok to use both together, however I suggest that the logical program is to continue the current Carpreive medication without the u move supplement until you are able to consult with the vets who prescribed the Carprieve and tell them what you are planning. Once agreed I would suggest continuing both in tandem for a few weeks before reducing the Carpreive and assessing the response.
Will anticipate you posting the outcome! .

Thank you for responding so quickly.

I'll hold off giving him any YuMOVE tomorrow and phone our vet on Monday to discuss the matter with him first.

Many thanks :-)

Obviously I agree with Stuart regarding checking it out with your vets however, just to say that Yumove has one of the best recommendations as a natural supplement and many people swear by it.
