He is a12 yr old, 25 lb daschund who has had back problems

He is a12 yr old, 25 lb daschund who has had back problems before. He is taking Simplef 100mg and Ketocaonazole 200mg that the vet prescribed him while one vacation due to his rubbing his chest/belly area raw from itching. Yesterday he tried to jump up on the couch and injured his back again and his back legs are partially paralyzed again and he is having back pain. We've given him Rimadyl (1/2 of a 75mg once daily) for this before and he eventually recovered/. Can he take Rimadyl with the meds he is on currently?JA: I'm sorry to hear that.

Our 7 year old doberman jumped out of the back of our SUV as

Our 7 year old doberman jumped out of the back of our SUV as usual and did not yip. After climbing one story of stairs, he is only sitting and won't lay down indicating pain in back or hip area. We called vet and she said x-ray, pain killer, and watch. As we'd rather wait until tomorrow morning because the emergency Sunday visit is expensive, we'd like to know if there is a household pain medicine we could use on a one hundred lb. dog. Or, is this very serious and we must go to emergency now. Thank you for advice. Alaska Dog Lover

My dog, a larger breed, was outside and was mating with a

My name is Ted. My dog, a larger breed, was outside and was mating with a female I own. Left them out for a while. No fighting, but I'm wondering if he tore a muscle or severely strained a muscle. He now whines while laying on floor doing nothing, mild fever 104.5, has trouble getting up, almost like when dogs hips give out, but he has no pain when I touch his back or hips even very aggressively. His pain is getting up, he can walk, eat, urinate (won't lift leg) and poop. His pain seem to be more chest area/rib area, but doesn't seem in pain once he's standing. I have had an Akita with hip dysplasia and I don't think that is it, plus sudden onset 12 hours or so. Any theories before vet tomorrow?

My schnauzer was diagnosed with Lymes decease and started

My schnauzer was diagnosed with Lymes decease and started doxy 100 mg this last thursday - he seemed to be improving however this morning, he is limping, favoring one leg and moaning a bit again... he has diarrhea but still has his appetite and is drinking water. he is also taking rimadly 25 mg - 1/2 tab twice daily although I gave him a full tab this morning in hopes of alleviating some of his stiffness.. He has the "walking on eggshells" thing this morning. However when he got up this morning he exhibited none of this, was playing with another dog and running, jumping around...could he have overdone it too soon? Its Sunday, the vet is closed, I'm wondering what else I can do today to promote his comfort ?
