We took Geordie to the vet today for his first SM prescription. We've been giving him Prilosec (Omeprazole), but he has been scratching lately. Since his digestive system is on the delicate side, we were a bit worried that an NSAID like Metacam or Rimadyl would cause problems. Fortunately our vet feels the same way, so she has prescribed Gabapentin. I'm so thankful we have drugs like this to make our dogs more comfortable. At the same time, I'm getting teary eyed, knowing that Geordie is getting worse. We have to get our courage up to face this journey. Please give your cavaliers an extra hug today, and send a positive thought our way!
