We're trying him on Rimadyl (a pain medication that's suppose to be safe for long-term use). He's only been on it a couple days, but so far he hasn't had any of his "bad days" despite having gone on a fairly long walk (for him).
Wow, that must be tough having to go to the vet so often and not really getting any answers. I know that sometimes there isn't any other choice, and I remember you saying you've talked to other vets, but maybe you could try finding a vet more open to trying something new? We have three vets offices with-in about twenty minutes of our home and one of them was very helpful in simply getting an x-ray and diagnosing the problem with-in a few minutes and at a fairly low cost. We don't go to this vet regularly (they are the furthest away) but sometimes getting a second opinion can really help when one vet seems too set on trying it one way (that isn't really working).
yike, I am sorry to hear Cinnamon has chronic pain . the rimadyl should help. if not, there might be other meds Cinnamon can take in conjunction of the Rimadyl. we know Rimadl is not a cure. only to relieve the pain..
I had Lucy at the vets today. I told him about the meds my niece takes for her he did precribed that and more predisone. he called it all in to Sams club for her (which is cheaper) hopefully, it will help. I checked her tummy this morning and last night, now, it feels normal
please keep me updated on Cinnamon. poor thing, it is so heart breaking when our babies get sick.
