You should contact the doctor who prescribed those medications for your dog and ask when he or she wants them to be given. One needs to be more careful with geriatric patients. You might want to try our Promaxol to reduce the pain and inflammation. It can be safely given with other medications and may allow you to use less of the conventional drug that often can be responsible for some negative side effects. In addition I like to give some fish oil as well. Please let us know how how you do.

Best regards,
