I've almost run out of Remadal for Maybull's arthritis. I can't get her any more until Monday afternoon. Is there an OTC med that I cn use? She's 45-50 lb. What's the dose?
Maybe a simple aspirin would work for a day? A 325 mg coated Bayer maybe?
Amy and Sophia
was on Deramaxx (similar to Rimadyl). I wanted to try a new NSAID. The vet did not want me giving any other NSAID for 7-10 days which would include aspirin. I would not give her anything. Poor baby, maybe try to keep her quiet until you can get her meds.
I was out of the Rymadil and had Deramaxx, but my vet said don't use them together. She actually said 15 days after the last Rymadil
I gave Norbert an aspirin a day, but he was not on Rimadyl. I was instructed to use the Rimadyl as needed, while using the aspirin. I agree not to use Rimadyl with Deramaxx.
But my vet had no concern using Aspirin along with Rimadyl as needed.
Norbert was about 65 lbs then and he if I remember right was getting an aspirin morning and night.
MacKenzie used to be on Rimadyl daily 50mg 2x. I started him on GLM powder (Green Lipped Muscle) and was able to totally wean him off the Rimadyl. In fact I ran out of GLM for a week and he got so stiff, I was surprised at how much of a difference it has made.
With her weight I would give her 1/2 aspirin morning and evening.
one missed dose will not be a problem. However, have you heard of or tried etogesic. This is a med even used on peole, works very well in dogs, and is easier on the liver. Ask your vet about it. I used it with excellent results.
For me, after Maybull's $3,000 expense with her cardiologist, cost is a concern. I'll look into all of these. Thanks for the advice, everyone.
