Heidi had her bloodwork and it was found that she was fine to take the Rimadyl. By then, she had been on it for 3 weeks, no side effects. The day after her blood test, she got terrible diarrhea. I immediately called and the vet said to take her off it for a couple days and then gradually try to get her back on it. At this time, she is back up to half the dose that I was giving her (25 mg., given twice a day at this time). So far, so good.
On an alternate subject, my daughter has been here from Minneapolis for four days, so the dogs had lots of attention, but none of my fretting, including Heidi. She has appeared A LOT BETTER. What does that tell me I wonder LOl?
