    Sarah,

    I'm hoping you can get Molly comfortable very soon, sending a soft hug (x)

    Alison.

    You might want to ask the vet about Tramadol for pain. If you start to use it, make sure she has a fish oil gel cap every day to help combat constipation.

    Also, Metacam has been very helpful for Geordie when he needs a little more pain relief than Gabapentin provides. You have to be careful with the non-steroidal anti-inflammatories though because they do have side effects in some dogs and are not meant for long term use.

    I agree with Scrumpymum that she would most likely benefit from a drug to reduce her CSF pressure. Your vet will help choose the right one for her.

    I hope you'll see some improvement soon.
