    Replying to Peg K’s question about how much time to see effect for her Standard Poodle. Our Lab has hip dysplasia which we’ve known about since she was two. When she was 7 she stopped jumping into the rear of our SUV and onto the bed. We got lightweight stairs and she used those for over a year. We had tried Rimadyl with no visible effect. Then our vet suggested we try Galliprant. She is 62# and we used 60mg once a day.
    Fortunately no tummy side effects and without even being asked, after three weeks she began jumping into the SUV so we put the stairs away. Then we asked her to try the bed, which she did with ease, so we put those stairs away also.
    She has been on Galliprant for about a year now (she’ll be nine next week) and she just flies into the car. The bed is higher, but after sizing it up she jumps right up. Oh, and we trim her nails on a window seat which is even higher and we had been lifting her up. No more…jumps up with ease!
    So we think that three weeks might be the watershed. Also we have an almost five year old terrier with a pinched disk right near her tail. She got herself into real pain when trying to get out of something we had stupidly left in the back yard. Couldn’t use her back legs! The pain meds got her on her feet and she and Galliprant has kept her out of trouble ever since.

    (Second post.) We have had both of our dogs on Galliprant for over nine months. Our Lab is almost nine and she had stopped jumping into the car etc. Rimadyl and Previcox showed no improvement. We used stairs for over a year until Galliprant came along. Less than two months of it and she started jumping again without encouragement! Weighs 61# and gets 60mg every morning in her breakfast. Also our 18# terrier mix who has a pinched nerve in her spine near her tail. She had been on Rimadyl and we switched over. She gets 20mg in her breakfast every day. Both dogs get a spoonful of pumpkin with every meal and we have had no GI problems ever. Terrier runs around like a puppy! Like all nsaid related meds you should give with food in the morning. It really works great for our dogs!

    Our black Lab, with hip displasia, would not jump in the rear of our SUV or on the bed. We gave her stairs to use. This was when she was only seven. we tried Previcox without any change. When she was eight our vet recommended Galliprant. Within three weeks she began ignoring the steps and jumping in the car and on the bed. We’ve put the steps in the garage as she shows no hesitation at all! She’s 62# and gets 60mg with breakfast. Absolutely works for her! (Our little terrier has a pinched nerve in her back and gets Galliprant too. 20 mg/day and she races around like a puppy!)
