I am perplexed by Ginger's situation and hope someone else can shed some light as to what's going on with her. She's been diagnosed with arthritis and put on Rimadyl for two weeks. Sime days the Rimadyl helps, others it makes no difference. The problem only occurs when she gets up from lying down when she won't walk on her left front, now sometimes her right rear leg. As soon as I let her in the yard to play... *poof* problem's gone! She runs around and carries on like a puppy. As soon as she comes back in from playing, she's back to hopping around on three legs. Apparently she's not in pain as her tail is going 200 mph most of the time. My vet says that her excitement of going play outside makes her forget about her achy leg. Is there anything I can give her on a daily basis to fend of the arthritis besides Rimadyl?
