Stiff joints in canines can find relief with this soak, Is your dog limping after play-time?

All of the sudden your dog has a little limp ?

Did they play too hard? TRY this ….

Stiff joints?

                                   Epsom salt soak.

Your suddenly limping dog may have strained or sprained something playing too exuberantly, so it’s time to try the world famous granny remedy of an Epsom salt soak. Add ½ cup Espom salt to a warm bath and let your dog soak for five minutes, twice daily. 

If your dog doesn’t agree with you on this method, you can soak a washcloth in Epsom salt and warm water and apply just to the local area.

Another thing you can do is 1 Baby aspirin per day 
( Check with you VET for dosage)

Most dogs do well with short term baby aspirin usage.

 SEE below for Warning Signs on Rimadyl adverse effects. 

NY is doing something about Rimadyl and other Harsh drugs.. They are tying to FORCE the VETS to tell you the DANGERS - 
SEE here 

Senate Bill S6584

2015-2016 Legislative Session
Establishes Buoy's law; requires veterinarians to notify owners of potential risks and side effects of medication prior to prescribing or otherwise providing medication to an animal


YOU want to continue Rimadyl? 

Deciding to Use Rimadyl

Carefully decide whether Rimadyl is appropriate for your dog by weighing the benefits against the risks. Keep in mind that it has been widely reported that many veterinarians are not fully informed about this drug. As Stephen Fried so eloquently summarizes in his book, Bitter Pills: "It's a question of whether the potential benefit is worth the risk and whether the patient understands that risk -- which depends on whether the doctor knows enough about the drug to really explain the risk."
If you decide your dog may benefit from Rimadyl and it is worth the risks involved, tell your vet that you want to determine the lowest possible dosage that can be used to obtain relief. Although the recommended dosage is 1mg/pound of weight twice per day, your dog may get relief at a lower dosage. A lower dosage could be instrumental in avoiding toxicity (although this is not guaranteed). In addition, your vet may recommend that Rimadyl be used for short periods (several weeks), or intermittently, as needed, with time off (several weeks) to give the dog's liver time to recover.
Insist on baseline tests and continued monitoring of the relevant functions during the entire time your dog takes the drug. Pfizer only recommends this and does not indicate that it is a requirement.

To avoid the gastric upset that occurs in some dogs, the drug should be given with food. Pepcid may also be used concurrently to control gastric upset.

As soon as your dog begins Rimadyl therapy and during the entire time he takes it, watch for the following symptoms, which are all signs of potential life-threatening reactions to the drug:
  • loss of appetite
  • change in drinking habits (refusal to drink or increased water consumption)
  • unusual pattern of urination, blood in the urine, sweet-smelling urine, an overabundance of urine, urine accidents in the house
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • black, tarry stools or flecks of blood in the vomit
  • lethargy, drowsiness, hyperactivity, restlessness, aggressiveness
  • staggering, stumbling, weakness or partial paralysis, full paralysis, seizures, dizziness, loss of balance
  • jaundice (yellowing of the skin, mucus membranes and whites of the eyes)

  • In the presence of any of these symptoms, IMMEDIATELY STOP the drug and take your dog to the vet. The earlier you catch the problem, the better the chances of complete recovery. 
    It will be helpful to Pfizer and may help to save your or another dog's life if you report any negative reactions your dog has or had when taking Rimadyl. You need only have a suspicion that Rimadyl is implicated
  •  You may call Pfizer at 1-800-366-5288 and the FDA at: 1-888-332-8387 (or 1-888-FDA-VETS).

What Causes Your Dog’s Face To Stink In The First Place?

There are numerous causes of stinky dog faces, including…

deep wrinkles may mean stinky wrinklesYour Dog Has A Lot Of Facial Wrinkles

Wrinkles allow moisture to build up between the delicate skin folds. These dark and moist places become an ideal breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria or yeast infections—hence the smell.   If your dog has excessive tearing (epiphora) and drainage of the eyes, all of this moisture builds up on hair and skin and creates a nasty odor – indicative of bacteria. Dogs that commonly experience this issue include the Shih Tzu, Maltese, Poodle, and brachycephalic breeds (breeds with short noses) like Pugs and Bulldogs. Short nosed dogs are especially prone to this problem because moisture becomes trapped in their wrinkles, where it can really become infected and stinky.
Bacteria cause odors that bother dog owners, but they can also create a persistent itch that bothers your dog. If your dog is constantly scratching at his/her face, it only introduces more bacteria to the surface. Plus, excessive scratching can lead to your dog cutting and damaging the sensitive skin on his/her face or eye surfaces.
