Good afternoon! Nice to meet you.
I am indeed/ Is Lorelei putting some weight on the leg? Is she eating and drinking? Is this a front or hind leg?
Okay, thank you. Are you able to tell me the active ingredient in Rheumacam? Is she otherwise healthy?
Thanks! One last question. Is this the leg that was operated on? Or the other one?
Thank you for that information. Please give me a moment to type my recommendations.
Okay, I am back. I am hopeful that she has just aggravated her surgical repair, and that she has not done any permanent damage to it. You can continue to give the Meloxicam. And, in addition, I would like you to give Paracetamol at 15 mg/kg twice daily for a day or two. Please keep Lorelie very quiet. Just take her out for potty breaks and that is all. If she is still lame on the leg tomorrow, I would like her to be examined, and her leg X-rayed.
You are so very welcome.
