The main toxicities of NSAIDs are associated with the gastrointestinal, hematopoietic and renal systems.
Gastrointestinal damage is the most common and serious side effect. Gastroduodenal erosion and ulceration reflect prostaglandin E2-mediated inhibition of bicarbonate and mucus secretion, epithelialization, and mucosal blood flow.
All NSAIDs are capable of impairing platelet activity related to thromboxane synthesis.
Analgesic nephropathy is a common adverse effect of NSAIDs in humans, however, it does not occur as often in domestic animals, in part because the drugs are not used as chronically. In the kidney, vasodilating prostaglandins are protective, ensuring arterial and renal vasoconstriction. The loss of this protective effect becomes important in patients with impaired renal function. Patients predisposed to analgesic nephropathy include geriatric patients, patients suffering from heart, kidney or liver disease, patients in hypovolemic states (shock and dehydration), and patients receiving nephrotoxic (aminoglycoside, for example) or nephroactive (diuretic) drugs.
Care must be taken to avoid intra-arterial drug administration. If wrongly applied, there may be stimulation of the Central Nervous System (CNS), occurring hysteria, ataxia, hyperventilation and muscle weakness, in which these symptoms are transient and do not require any control measures.
