Q Simon asks:

My staffy is 9 years old and has been diagnosed as having arthritis (elbow) - otherwise he appears to be a healthy boy. My concern is that I have read several articles, personal stories about the risk of internal bleeding? Is it true that internal bleeding is a possible side effect?

Q Our vet says: Gastrointestinal bleeding is one of the possible side effects of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. You will need to discuss this with your vet if you are concerned. Usually the benefits are greater than the risks, but obviously this needs to be assessed on an individual basis and your vet, who knows your dog, is the best person to talk to about your worries.
