Using Apocaps CX/CXE with Other Treatments, Medications or Supplements
- Apocaps® CX is extremely safe, with fewer than 5% of dogs experiencing mild GI side effects like nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting. (That’s a typical rate for any change in diet, medication, or supplement.) The most common reported side effect is loose stool, which clears up with a reduced dose and gradually increasing to a full dose over time.
- In other words, Apocaps is tolerated by the vast majority of dogs right from the get-go. For the very few dogs who experience stomach upset at first, it's almost always loose stools, although more rarely, it's diarrhea, vomiting, or nausea. In these cases, Apocaps is tolerated if the dose is reduced and gradually increased over time.
In general, veterinarians feel very comfortable using Apocaps® CX with other treatments, due to its great safety record.
Apocaps may have a mild anti-inflammatory effect in some dogs, so if your dog is on a separate pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory (NSAID or steroid), it's a good idea to reduce the dose to half or a quarter of the labeled dose.
Otherwise, Apocaps® CX is an excellent candidate for synergistic use!
You should consult with your veterinarian before making any changes to your dog's health care and prior to giving your dog Apocaps®.
