Rimadyl for short term use
The orthopedic vet at the university here sent me home with Rimadyl to help the inflammation in by dog's back. I was apprehensive about using it, but under the advisement of my regular vet, I used it for only three days and stopped.
But my regular vet also suggest I use it during agility trial weekends to keep the inflammation down.
With all of the horror stories on the internet, I fear using it at all, but is 2-3 days at a time going to hurt?(usually about once a month, two-three weekends in a row this March-but otherwise only one weekend)
Should I just toss the $50 worth of Rimadyl and get something else, or will 2-3 days in a row, once a month (also with a few months off in the summer) be okay?
