Bravey is a 10 yr old chocolate lab weighing 75 lbs. He's had arthritis most of his life and has been on Deramaxx. Since Deramaxx was discontinued, my vet gave him Meloxicam and that seems to be when problems arose. He fell over on his side on Christmas Eve and has had shaky, unstable back legs since. Vet said he had a torn ACL but also thought some neurological problem was occurring. MRI and spinal tap showed inflammatory meningitis. He was put on Prednisone, 20 mg. twice daily. He was spunky as ever with the Prednisone but we had a hard time weaning him of it. Finally, with laser and Adequan injections, he got some relief. When Meloxicam was restarted, shaking began again and today he can hardly get up. I';D given him Promaxol for the last week but see no difference. Today I gave him the Arthro-Ionx and he seemed a bit better in a couple of hours. Can I give him more than twice a day dosage to jump start him? Also, in your opinion, if the Arthro-IonX works, can that replace surgery for a torn ACL or should he have it done to fix the physical tear in his leg. He is also eating way too much grass. What is that telling us? Thank you for your assistance.
