For those of you who have had dogs with spinal arthritis, did you give your dog his medication daily or only when there appeared to be flare-ups? Stomps was recently diagnosed, but he doesn't act like he's in pain, so I don't know what to do. The vet and I got sidetracked with other issues and never covered dealing with his arthritis. I know to have his liver enzyme levels tested regularly.

I would phone your vet's office and ask for clarification. I'm sure they would be happy to answer your question over the phone and not require a trip in. Our old dachshund Hansel only took Deramaxx when he needed it,as perscribed by the vet, but your situation could be different-

Daisy takes Deramaxx every day. She also has spinal and hip arthritis. She still has an occasional flare up, but they only last a couple of days. We have blood work done every 6 months. So far she has tolerated the medication well.
