    There’s an emergency vet that is open when regular vet is closed, but I don’t think they do much over the phone. I almost took her in that night, but she seemed fine by the time we drove there. I fed her plain rice and boiled chicken breast for three days and she’s had no other issues. Her appetite was strong and her stool was solid. The next morning after the episode, I only gave her half her dose of the galliprant but resumed regular dose the following day bc she seemed fine. It’s been about a week now and we have had no issues at all. I’m definitely keeping an eye on everything but I don’t think now that it was her meds.

    My vet prescribed Galliprant last week; my 9 y/o dachshund has been on it 4 days now – she had to get the pred out of her system first. Last night all of a sudden she vomited 5x in a row and then released bowels as she lay there spent from the vomiting. Bowels were formed and it seemed that she just lost control bc of the stress. This is the first and only symptom she has shown. I thought maybe it was from a new treat given to her hours prior but now I’m concerned about the med. my vet is closed til Monday.

    So glad I found this forum! Btw, if any of you haven’t tried acupuncture for mobility issues, you really should look into it. In combo with meds, not instead of. It has saved three doxies in my family from paralysis.
