I’d like to know what other medications I can speak to the vet about in regards to Fly’s arthritis. I’ve heard Previcox mentioned is this a good one to ask for? The vets have had her on loxicom and tramadol and at her last “review” they told me to add paracetamol when she is having bad days, which was happening all too frequently on her current meds so I don’t feel is an adequate solution and I’m just giving her something that is having no affect on her pain levels. I started her on CBD a month ago and I have seen an apparent improvement since she has been on that but I would like to arm myself with some medications to ask about/for next time we go in and see the vet rather than them pushing gabapentin which she has had before after major surgery and she was just off her head on it.
Thank you, the loxicom stopped seeming to have any effect over 9 months ago and the vet started her on Tramadol as well which I don’t think has been effective in reducing her pain either over the longer term but I just seem to end up getting the same meds because I don’t know what other medications I could ask for. It probably doesn’t help that she seems to have a good spell whenever she has her appointment so the vet isn’t seeing her when she is obviously in a lot of pain. She has massage therapy which is the best thing I’ve found for improving her movement, I aim to get her a massage every 4-6 weeks and a localish vets has started offering acupuncture which I have thought about taking her for as well.
