who has there dog on rimadyl?
Posted 03 August 2012 - 09:36 PM
i took her to the vet immediately and the dr said that it was severe arthritis. she reassured me that the rimadyl was safe if i monitor her eating/stools and have regular blood tests for her liver function. i feel bad that i didn't start her on this drug earlier. she's an amazing dog and doesn't deserve to suffer.
they also gave me tramadol to give in addition to the rimadyl. i'm hoping for a miracle.
does anyone else use rimadyl for their dog? were the results good?

i rushed her to the hospital saturday morning and xrays showed a mass on her spinal cord
and i had to put her down. the options they gave me were all bad.
it's gut-wrenching sad. she was a big part of my life and brought so much joy and happiness.

her name was cheddar. she was a rescue so i kept her name. she was born in vermont in november of 1999
just before the turn of the century and was named after the famous vermont cheese. she was the sweetest, smartest most athletic dog you might ever meet. she could swim like michael phelps and catch line drives like derek jeter. i learned a lot of valuable life lessons from her. the house feels so empty without her presence. truly heart-breaking.

love and light to you, scarfire.

It is, to me, an incredible act of love to make that decision, knowing the personal pain and sadness it will bring. You did good by your friend...
