Q. My puppy is having his ears cropped and the vet prescribes Rimadyl for post surgical pain. Do you have a suggestion for pain medication instead of Rimadyl?
Two weeks from now, my 6 week old Dobe, is scheduled for ear cropping. The Doctor who will perform the surgery, is well known for his skill, but following the procedure, they plan to send us home with Rimadyl, for pain control.

I know that you do not approve of Rimadyl, so do you have an alternative, or other advice for pain control; if necessary at all!

Thank you in advance

A. Hi,

I use Traumeel for my own dogs (and even take it myself). There are no known drug interactions and it's safe to give.

I grind up a tablet in a spoon and just dump the powder in my dog's mouth, three times a day.

I adopted an old dog and she had to have a number of teeth taken out. She was in a lot of pain and I refused the meds from the vet and used Traumeel 3x daily for about 4 days.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Rhodes

Grizzly Salmon Oil
Grizzly Salmon Oil

I use this in my own kennel. My dogs love it. I have dogs that will spit a gell cap out. These same dogs love this salmon oil. It's an excellent all-natural source of Omega3 and Omega 6. It's easier than capsules for a puppy to swallow. Freezing of Salmon Oil is not recommended. Salmon Oil should be used within 3 months of opening a bottle.

If you love your dog, you need to read this book! It will change the way you view the health of your pet. I can tell you this from experience. Feeding commercial dog food since 1950's, I became more and more concerned about exactly what I was forcing my dogs to live on. When I did a little research, I became very critical of commercial dog food companies.
