Hi there. How is you dog doing now?

It sounds like you’re doing a great job of resting him but maybe he has still managed to over do it a little..

I’f defiantly mention this episode to your therapist and see what they say.

Have you asked your vet about any other pain killers? There are a lot of options besides loxicom, some drugs in the same family (which may be tolerated better) or some that are completely different in the way they work
