Presents and Pops

My furry doktor sent me a present. What is it mom? Can I open it? Please, please?

Hmm, what is this? Treats in the mail? Mommy took it away from me before I started chewing on it. She said it is a special treat that will make me feel better. It is called Deramaxx. Mommy gives me 1/2 of a treat a day. She said she can tell that I am getting up a little easier. The furry doktor said I should be able to grow to be an even older lady and going on my walkies will be a lot easier. HHHAARROOOO!!!
I was so excited, I left this nice present for mommy. She said it was disgusting!

To get even with me, she started making weird sounds with her feet! I did not like it at all, so...

I went outside and got daddy. He made mommy stop. But she kept laughing for a long time.

BARK! Sasha the Princess!

Note from mommy: So far no side effects from the new meds. We are so glad. I have been watching closely for any good changes, and the first week I was a bit disappointed. But then I noticed she is getting up a little faster, and she hasnt fallen backward as much as she was a couple weeks ago. She is still getting lame toward the end of her walks, but not falling down. Not sure how long or how much of an improvement we will see, but we are just happy that her pain is most likely more under control and her "issue" is gone. Would love to hear of everyone elses experience with Deramaxx.

Moose does not like those pops either! I have used Deramaxx on Moose and 2 friends have used it on their dogs and I have done tons of reading on it. There is lots of scary stuff out there but I am happy to say that Moose and the other 2 dogs I know have had no ill-effects and lameness was improved in all 3! One of them (Moose's girlfriend Swissie) is now taking Rimadyl and her mom wants to go back to Deramaxx because although Rimadyl seems to help, she says Deramaxx makes her Swissie act like a puppy again (she is an older gal with pretty bad arthritis). I hope it helps you and doesn't give you any trouble. We are always careful to give it with a full meal and use the lowest dose possible to help reduce the chances of side effects.

Sasha! That popping sure made you mad, huh? I think you must be feeling better to trash talk to your mom like that.

I'm glad your new treats are making you feel better. I don't understand why your mom didn't like the treats you left her!

Guess what? My mom person & I have created a new blog at

We'd love it if you would come over and check it out & become a member. It's a great new place for pet bloggers to find each other, and get an opportunity to be a featured blog!
