I’ve got a 12-year-old cat whose diabetic and a 13-year-old cat with hyperthyroidism.
Today, I took my 9-year-old bordador to the vet to try to figure out what’s he always groaning about. I know he’s got the pretty typical hip dysplasia that older dogs get as well as some arthritis. Now much pain that’s been causing him, it’s difficult to know.
Today I started him on Rimadyl to see if it alleviates arthritic pain. If it works, it’ll cost $80 a month. That’s almost as much as all my medications cost.
I don’t know if it’s just a fluke, but so far, this evening, Herman is lying on couch and unusually quiet.
This post is also an excuse to share some recent pics of the handsome guy…
