The past few days, Daisy's arthritis has flared up. She was so uncomfortable yesterday that we were at the vet's first thing this morning. She's walking like a little old lady, head down, tiny steps, arched back. She's on Deramaxx and it appears to have lost it's efficacy. We've already had her on Rimadyl, and that stopped working also. She is having a full workup, xrays, bloodwork, etc. The vet wanted to keep her until late today or early tomorrow, to let her recover completely from the anesthesia. I'm really afraid that there is something else going on too....she's never been this bad before. She's 8 years old and came to us from an abusive situation through a Basset rescue. We've had her since she was 3. Please send good thoughts her way...........
