    Yes, we used it with Ruger. I don't think it did anything spectacular, I didn't notice any less pain than having used Rimadyl or Previcox or even Metacam. Just my opinion. It was for back pain, which eventually was really leg pain from a torn ACL. Surgery fixed it.

    Thanks Linda.It is the only thing he can have with Pred. The idea is to wean him off Pred and try something else. Not sure if it will be a long time drug or what.

    I googled it and it said used for seizures so seemed odd.
