Knee pain, cbd oil vs remadyl ...
Hi all, Iíll try not to make this too long but no promises. Our 112 pound, 2 year old American Bulldog has had some on and off limping for months. Heís already been diagnosed with a herniated disk so we assumed after hard playing/hiking that it was this bother him, let him rest a few days then heís fine. Well, last week was severe, heíd take 4 steps and collapse, awful. Made him a vet appt but it would take 2 days to see him. I gave him cbd treats to ease the pain, limping improved by the next day. Another vet was able to see him before our original appt (nothing wrong with a second opinion anyway) That vet did a small exam, no xrays, just touch and feel. Strongly recommend surgery! In both knees, when we thought it was just the right. Anyway, research all day and night and this seemed so scary. Get to our usual vet appt and he says Floki is slightly overweight, put him on a diet and remadyl for pain. (We did not say anything about other vet) At this appt, he wouldnít even limp, like I was lying! Lol (had been on cbd) Itís been 4 days now that I quit the cbd for the Rx, remadyl. Back to limping, lethargic and had a head tremor. He has had tremors in the past so may be unrelated but that was over a year ago. Iíve decided today to quit the prescription and use cbd again. I canít help but think Iím wrong for not taking doctor advice but I want so bad to do right by my dog. Also, they wanted to do bloodwork after 2 weeks to see how heís handling remadyl... I feel concerned about that. Give him something, look for damage then decide? Any ideas, opinions, experiences would ease my mind right now. Please and thanks!
