To make a long story short, she has been on some powerful meds every since the surgery (Gabapentin, Methocarbomol,Tramadol,Prednisolone, and a Fentanyl
patch, and Bupernex when needed). In
my opinion she will eventually need doggie drug rehab. My vet has now taken her completely off the prednisolone and have decreased the other meds mentioned above, and prescribed Metacam which seems to be working. She will be taking this daily for awhile or maybe for long term.
