    Brenda – I feel your frustration with the lack of availability of the 100mg pills. I have a 106# lab/dane mix and our vet put him on 90mg a day ( 1 1/2 of the 60mg pills). How much does your dog weigh? Like Jamie W wrote above, I would also skip a day when the GI issues start, we have had to do the same. I have skipped up to three days after having been on it for months and GI issues starting. I have also gone one week on only one pill (60mg) a day –

    My vet prescribed Galliprant yesterday for my 17 y/o lhasa/poodle/doxie mix who presented with severe lameness and pain over the weekend in her hind end. She was barely able to walk so I started her on Tramadol that we keep on hand for pain from a previous back issue and she was a little improved yesterday before the vet. First dose was yesterday around noon, and I am floored by the rapid increase of mobility – she was back to her bouncy self this morning. She had elevated liver enzymes which prompted us to use the Galliprant as opposed to Rimadyl – I am glad I found this forum so I can be aware of the warning signs of possible trouble. I am going to call the vet’s office this morning about the code someone mentioned for the $10 rebate – hopefully they will know what I’m talking about.
