Is it fine to give omeprazole continuously alongside previcox to protect the gut

Great answer @Pollyanna

as far as I know the use of antacids alongside NSAIDs is a methodology extrapolated from human work. I’m not sure there’s much out there re effectiveness in dogs… doesn’t mean to say it won’t help just we haven’t studied it.

also so many other variables to consider

That depends! We don’t really have enough information to answer that question – what size is your dog, what dose of omeprazole and previcox are they on, how long have they been on them both for, what is the underlying condition, has your dog had any previous GI issues, either associated with NSAIDs or otherwise, is your dog on any other medication (including over the counter), does your dog have any other health conditions etc etc. All the above could affect the answer, so it’s probably best to ask your prescribing vet in the first instance as they have access to all that information.
