Abstract

Traditional Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NAIDs) have been widely used to deal with many inflammatory conditions in veterinary medicine. Nowadays however, as the quality of life of animals is improved, new drug options need to be explored. In this review, the authors report on recent trends and the application of the active ingredients labeled for veterinary purposes.
