Zappa and pain meds and hips
So, Zappa went to the vet again today. I was aiming for a 3 lb weight loss and we went over by a few. He was at 76 lbs today, I wanted him at 78 to help his hips. When he looses too much, he just gets way too thin too fast. So anyway, we are going for a 2 lb weight gain now.
Well, the vet and I were going over pain meds today. Neither one of us wanted to try Rimadyl(sp) because of his GI issues and back in April/May his lipase was through the roof. So, we decided together on aspirin. The vet wants him to have 406mg (1 regular strength, 1 baby) 2X a day. Does this sound OK?
We are trying to hold him off on a replacement until we move to Washington. I want to be able to stay consistent with 1 surgeon, 1 rehab.
Does anyone have any recommendations on natural pain relievers?
