Thanks for the celebration yesterday Wish I'd have felt better and could have joined in. I still feel like a wet dishrag, but better than yesterday.

Went to pick up the anti-inflammatory Dr. Vancil left for Andy. Rimidyl!! OMG Glad I knew from previous experience that could have killed him because of the Prednisone he takes on a daily basis. Yikes.

Andy didn't want to put weight on his left front paw this morning. I have cotton batting over his pad and rubber athletic tape around his foot to give him support. We're going to have to get to the bottom of this. X-Rays didn't show a break last month, but did show a lot of arthritis.

Wow, why did Dr. Vance prescribe Rimadyl when Andy is on prednisone? That does not make sense. I think all anti-inflammatories are not recommended in combination with prednisone. I think you might be stuck with Tramadol only.

I hope you feel a lot better soon and hugs to the celebration boy and I hope he feels better soon also.

Hey Danny, have you looked into acupuncture or laser therapy for Andy? It might be an option for his limping/arthritis.
There are two clinics up here offering it now and I am going to check into it, if Toby gets worse. Right now he is doing pretty good.

I know of a clinic in Bellevue that also offers laser therapy and probably at a decent price.

Andy was limping heavily again this morning. I was looking at his left front paw and got to feeling around. The ankle on that leg feels swollen, especially behind the joint. I'm keeping ice on it and Andy on heavier doses of Tramadol to keep him quiet. We'll go see Dr. Root tomorrow for an X-Ray of his ankle. Had 2 X-rays done of his pad when he first started limping. It was very bruised, but no breaks. All of the bruising is gone now.

It sure doesn't. The vet on duty at the 24 hour ER at NVS called him and he said, "I don't know why I did that." I'm so thankful I knew about that from when Dr. Kim Williams at BluePearl suggested it when Andy tore his ACL (that she couldn't diagnose) and Dr. Root (Andy's regular vet) said it would have killed him being on Prednisone.

Jane had what I have midweek. and so I didn't get over to pick up the meds until today. I'm SO glad I knew the Rimidyl and Prednisone would be a deadly combination. What a nightmare it would have been had I not known.

As always, thank you for the well wishes ... for both of us

BTW, Jane and I both had PBJ's made from a new jar of peanut butter before we got sick, she midweek, and me Friday night. Checked the jar, and sure enough the FDA just listed it as one of the brands made by Sunland recalled due to salmonella. Jane's feeling 70% and I'm still recuperating, but at least I'm breathing!! LOL

Danny

Praying for Andy and they need to look at his paw and maybe do more xrays, again.

Glad you and Jane are feeling better.

I agree, Thank God you knew that Rimadyl and Prednisone would be a deadly combination. We definitely have to be our own and our pets ADVOCATES!
Doctors can forget and they don't know everything!

Oh my! Thank goodness you were aware about the medication, Karen's definitely right about us being our own pets advocates!

Sorry to hear that Andy's still having some trouble walking and hope that the vet can find some answers for you really soon, sending him a big hug.
Glad that you and your wife are feeling a little better too.
