Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
I am sorry to hear Georgia is not feeling well.
Many times if a dog is still painful, the appetite will decrease when going off the Rimadyl. It sounds like she might need to be on it a little bit longer. There is also the potential she is having some upset stomach either related to the medication or not related at all. I would start by giving her a 20mg omeprazole (prilosec OTC) to help calm her stomach. Offer her a bland diet today like plain boiled chicken and plain white rice. If she is not improving today or if she starts vomiting or having diarrhea, I would have her seen by your vet tomorrow.
I just wanted to check in. I never heard back from you. How is your Georgia doing? Is there anything else I can help you with? Please feel free to reply back at your convenience and let me know if there is anything more I can do for you. Also, please feel free to leave positive feedback for this conversation at any time so we know you no longer require continuing this conversation. I wish you and Georgia the best. Have a great day!
