i have a 15yr old blk lab mix about 75lbs the vet initially prescribed meloxicam 7.5 mg.he said she wld have to b on pain meds the rest of her life.i order thru 800-petmeds n the 1st n 2nd rx of 100(forgot to mention he wntd me to split the 7.5s in half n give to her)he oked them now i have no money to take her to the vet n feel horrible watching her b in pain.I have to lift her up everywhere.but on the last visit to the vet he gave her tramadol to take with the meloxicam.I personally take oxycodone 20mg n wondered if i cld break pieces off a pill n give to her just till i can get money to take her back to the vet.but dont want to her my baby.she also over the 15 yrs ive had her she gets ear
infections n was always given an antibiotic that came in a tube n was a type of cream although very watery i only had to put a couple of drops in the ear for a few days n it went away.now im out of everything.but the most important is her pain.
