We've taken Gin off Deramaxx and have started on Tramadol -- seems to be giving her some comfort, but certainly not the same affect the Deramaxx gave her. We will try the Tramadol for while longer and may decide to go back to anti-inflammatories but keeping a watchful eye on her. Her ulcers seem have healed up and she is, at least, eating normally now.
She is having great difficulty with our floors, so I decided to try out these socks - they have treads on the bottom. They seem to be working - give her just enough traction that she can stand from a laying down position with only a couple of attempts. She wasn't quite sure of them at first, but she seems to be walking around fine with them now.
Giving them a test-run
Awww. Sweet girl. Glad she's getting used to her socks.
Awwww she is so darn cute!! Glad they are helping her.
aww, i think the socks are lovely! Very fetching!
Good to hear that the ulcers have healed and she is eating again. Continued good thoughts for sweet Gin.
Glad they are helping. I have just made some for Tessa and the high paw walk is hilarious. You want to laugh, but don't.
Glad the ulcers are healing and she is eating. She is adorable.
She is quite the fashionista!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
That's great that she doesn't mind wearing them and it's a lot easier than putting throw rugs all over. I put sox on Mitzi to keep her from licking paws, but she hated it so I stopped. I guess the difference is that Gin wants to walk without slipping and knows the sox help.
She is so sweet.

Great idea and I hope she will be doing better soon. ((hugs)) to you and Gin.
Glad Gin's tum is feeling better. Her socks are a great idea!
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am
