57 lbs 100 mg twice a day
Were you able to look at my previous questions?
he can't be on NSAIDs because his liver is a 1663...although went down to an 1100 (I gave him Milk Thistle...then stopped due to diarrhea and wasn't sure what's causing it, but I am assuming it's the other natural supplements the Accupuncurist gave him))
then the tramadol caused severe dysphoria...and major crying...which we though was pain but was really due to the Tramadol.
I can copy and paste my previosu conversations....or I think you have access to my previous questions from a few weeks ago right?
I am thinking of providing a link to dropbox for you to look at the Xrays

the weird thing is, before we even took him to the vet 10 days ago, he was just stiff, not jumping on bed, etc. we walked him every day...
after the vet visit he is now in worse shape and his front legs are giving out...
I even asked my vet if they accidentally dropped him or he fell off the x-ray table...she said usually her vet techs would tell her if something like that happened.
I am seeing an orthopedic specialist tomorrow morning. (Thank goodness I have vet insurance up to $7k per incident) They said something about an ultrasound...I need an MRI or CT scan?
It's interesting that you are seeing something at L1 or L2. They are telling me he has spondolosis so bad that one bone even formed a circle and that he looks like he was hit by a car because his rib cage didn't looks fractured in one spot and didn't form properly and I think #12 or 13 is where they said where disc damage may be.
We have had him since he was around 9 months old. Rescued him from the pound...something could have happened before then but I don't know.
A few years ago he had a stiff neck but after thinking about it, I attributed it to him trying to eat food off the stove and cranking his neck to grab it.
Also, I think Bandit was stiff for a while and we never noticed it that much. That's why it is weird that this seems "all of a sudden"
also on vet says rest 3-4 weeks, the other tells me "if you don't use it, you lose it" basically telling me to keep taking him on walks so he doesn't get more stiff.
I am pretty confused.
In addition, the orthopedic says it's important to tell them which vet is referring them. I am assuming they get commission. Which makes me very uncomfortable. I know the VCA vets work on straight commission.
Does gabapentin cause crying? I just gave him some and now he's crying
