I took her to the vet last week and she was prescribed Onsior for her back problem... she still seems to be having episodes where she stiffens up and shakes I was wondering if there is anything else I can buy like a anti inflammatory with painkillers

Thank you

Sorry to hear that your Frenchie has been having back problems. Onsior belongs to a class of drug known as non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) so is a good choice to use when there is pain and/or inflammation. If the onsior alone is not controlling the pain then a second pain killer may be added in, this could be an opoid like tramadol or something like gabapentin if nerve related pain is suspected. These are things that your vet can prescribe if they felt it was appropriate, however he may also need further investigation regarding the cause of his pain.

Hope that answers your questions, please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
