Data sheet also contraindicated to use for pregnant and lactating bitch but i have yet to work in a gp practice that does not.
I believe that there is some thought that Nsaids affect microvascualture to an extent that healing of gut may be compromised.

I have had to use nsaid as a rescue pain relief after fb enterotomy on a dog that was full of morphine. Worked well.

Years ago we felt no such qualms and i dont perceive any difference in outcomes. But this scenario could do with some real evidence and a meta analysis.
