El mecanismo de acción de los antiinflamatorios no esteroideos (AINEs) consiste en reducir la producción de prostaglandinas (PG) a través de la inhibición de la enzima ciclooxigenasa (COX). Los pacientes más propensos a los efectos secundarios son aquellos de edad avanzada, debido a la reducción de su metabolismo y la excreción del fármaco. Se recomienda no administrar AINEs en pacientes hipovolémicos, deshidratados o hipotensos, y de especial cuidado en pacientes con disfunción cardíaca, renal, hepática, gastrointestinal y hemostática. Los AINEs han sido ampliamente utilizados en el tratamiento del dolor a largo plazo. La eficacia de carprofeno ha sido respaldada por la mayor cantidad de estudios, seguido por meloxicam y firocoxib. Sin embargo, estos pueden causar ulceraciones gástricas, perforaciones y hemorragias entre otros efectos adversos de tipo gastrointestinal, renal y hepático. Existe una marcada diferencia farmacocinética y farmacodinámica entre caninos y felinos que corresponden a diferencias en el metabolismo. La administración de ibuprofeno por lo general no se recomienda en perros, existe el riesgo de ocasionar efectos adversos como ulceraciones gástricas y perforaciones cuando se utiliza terapéuticamente, y posiblemente por muchos AINEs. El objetivo de esta revisión es describir los principales efectos adversos relacionados al uso de AINEs en felinos y caninos, lograr identificar y seleccionar los que aún hoy en día se pueda administrar como analgésico y antiinflamatorio no esteroideo con fines terapéuticos, en el manejo de inflamación, dolor y fiebre en el manejo de osteoartritis (OA) en estas especies en el control y cuidado en los intervalos de dosificación.
