Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
hI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this...sounds to me like your dog is in more pain than what deramaxx by itself is going to help...was your dog this way prior to starting deramaxx?
So, let me know about the above.....but my suspicion is that we still have some pain and maybe some cognitive dysfunction as well...I would ask your vet for the diet science diet JD diet for joints...it is great and really helps these old timers alot.....also I would recommend adding in some gabapentin for the nerve pain your dog has but this needs to be done slowly....I would start with low dose once daily and very slowly work up to final dose over the course of several weeks time...reason for this is that this drug can be quite sedating and patients need time to slowly acclimate to it......as a rehab certified vet I also use alot of PS-GAG for may patients and I teach my owners how to inject their own dogs at home...many vets don't realize this can be given as a SQ injection...so that is how I would approach....naturally if none of that gets your dog comfortable or if this pacing continue then you should see your vet asap. Hope that helps you. Sincerely,dRB
