    DefaultHad a scare today

    This morning Kayla struggled to get to her feet and was barely able to walk. We headed straight to the vet as soon as he opened. I was already in tears because she was in so much pain. At 13 with arthritis and congestive heart failure, we were fearing the worst. Her back was hunched up trying to keep her weight off her front feet but her tail kept wagging. Our vet watched her walk and told us it is the arthritis and the colder weather. So more Rymadil each day and keep her as warm as possible, steroids will be the last resort. She's napping and seems to be feeling better. Whew!
    So, do you come here often?

    Glad she is doing better!

    I am taking Belle in this afternoon to get her officially on Rimadyl. She is 13 also (TODAY!) and just in the last week started having a lot of problems getting up/down and walking. Scared the crap out of me this weekend. I had some leftover Rimadyl on hand and it makes all the difference in the world!

    I'm so sorry. It's hard watching our best friends age.

    What Rimadyl dosage are you giving? Just curious, as I am figuring out Belle's dosage. I am hoping Kayla progresses well, and graces us with many more years!!
