if not rimadyl, how about Galliprant?   He is looking great!

Czar's able to take half his Rimadyl dose, on the non Palladia days. Hopefully that helps.

I LITERALLY  have some Happy tears!!   This is definitely my "happy fix" for the day!!!"😁😁

Czar is so gentle with the puppy.  Melts my heart 😊  And Czar is soooo happy Nancy!  

Tell us more about how each puppy interacts with Czar.  And how he interacts with each of them.  Similar?  Different?  It is just so much fun watching  your pack😎

The puppies are very different. The one he's playing with is more confident. The other one doesn't know what to do yet. Czar is big and loud, and likes to chase them. They'll figure it out.

Woaaaaah! Wow I can't believe how big he's gotten! Oh my gosh all that puppy love is just making me want to jump into the screen and give him a big squeeeeeeeze! And Czar showing his what play nice is like, well that's just adorable. He's a great big bruddah.

I hope the Rimadyl helps too. Fingers & paws crossed.

He is a very squeezable dog. I hope he has lots more time to bond with them. He has xrays next week.

pain management wise for the remaining 3 arthritic legs we have had really good luck with galliprant + gabapentin + amantadine. It could be coincidence but the amantadine did really seem to help.

I'll ask about gallibrant if this doesn't work. He can't take gabapentin, it makes him sick.

Czar is clearly adored by the pups.  And they couldn't  have a  better role model.  😎

Those are such great photos! When I see them playing I can’t help but hear that old song “Leader of the Pack.” That’s Czar!
