Galliprant not working yet

Solved170 viewsAnti Inflammatories

Scout has elbow displaysia and has had surgery for FCP in both sides.  One side def worse than the other.  He has arthritis as a result
Nothing seems  to work.. second round of PRP has done nothing (first seemed to work a bit) he’s been bad the past few weeks on his regular previcox he has had a few days off as had a suspected blockage and had gastro issues.
Thought would try Galliprant but he’s been even worse wouldn’t walk at all today (day 3) . The warm weather doesn’t help he hates it.
He is only 6 and basically is moping around at home being miserable and can’t even do a nice 10 min walk.
How long should we give the Galliprant? I can’t help but think should have seen some improvement by now.  He wasn’t exactly doing great on the Previcox  either.  The previxox gave us an improvement within 2 hours when we started.
Left message with the specialist and our regular vet is back on Tuesday.

Well got the answer to that one.. he’s been eating grass like mad and has just been sick in the garden.  It’s the third episode of vomiting in 3 weeks including one bad one when he was scanned for a blockage.  He had full bloods (Just high white blood cells) and tests for pancreatitis came back negative and nothing nasty on the tummy scan .  He had thyroid tests too… one T4 came back flagged as low but no one seems worried
